College football odds handicappers have to be careful betting the college football betting lines for Oklahoma State and Texas A&M as both teams have been inconsistent.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys began the 2009 season as one of the favorites to beat the college football odds and win the Big 12 South. Oklahoma State has a college football betting lines record of 3-1 straight up but 1-2 against the spread. Handicapping the college football odds with Oklahoma State has proven to be quite a challenge as after they beat Georgia in their opener 24-10 they were flat and embarrassed the following week against Houston 35-45. The Cowboys have proven to be a college football odds overlay as they failed to cover the spread in a 41-24 win over Rice in week 3 as 32.5-point chalks. They were not listed on the college football odds board in their last game September 26 when they beat Grambling 56-6. The Cowboys have an even college football odds mark of 2-2 on over/under totals this year.
The Texas A&M Aggies were brought back down to earth last week in a college football odds loss of 19-47 against Arkansas. The Aggies were listed on the college football betting lines board as 2-point dogs and were dominated after jumping out to a 10-0 lead at Cowboys Stadium. Texas A&M has a record of 3-1 straight up and 2-2 against the spread. The Aggies have an over/under college football odds record of 2-2. The Aggies rank 2nd in the nation on the charts for total offense but much of that was built up in their first 3 games against inferior opposition.
This game is an important test for both teams. Oklahoma State must prove their contender credentials with a win while the Aggies will want to demonstrate that last week’s college football odds result is not going to be the norm against top shelf teams. The Cowboys have gotten the cash in the last 2 college football odds meetings between the teams.
