The Cowboys you want to follow are in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are 5-0 this season straight up and a very profitable 4-1 against the spread at the online bookmaker.
Top 20 Team – Oklahoma State is ranked 20th in the country. The Cowboys were supposed to be in a rebuilding year but instead they are off to a fast start. The Cowboys are ranked 20th in the AP poll and they are ranked 18th in the USA Today poll.
Tough Game at Texas Tech – If there is any place in the country that Oklahoma State doesn’t want to go it is Lubbock. They have lost nine straight games at Texas Tech and have not won there since 1944. If the Cowboys can survive Tech they then have to face Nebraska and Kansas State. It sounds like the unbeaten streak could be coming to an end for Oklahoma State with that schedule. The Cowboys are underdogs at the online bookmaker on Saturday.
Second in Scoring – The Cowboys are second in the nation in scoring and fourth in total offense. The Cowboys scored 54 points last week in a win over Louisiana-Lafayette. Oklahoma State has 16 first-time starters this season but they have come together quickly, especially on offense. Quarterback Brandon Weeden ranks 10th in the country in total offense. Receiver Justin Blackmon has 47 receptions for 748 yards and 11 touchdowns. Running back Kendall Hunter is fifth in the country in rushing at 140 yards per game.
Upcoming Schedule – The Cowboys go to Texas Tech on Saturday and then face Nebraska the following week. We know about their struggles in Lubbock but the Cowboys have beaten the Cornhuskers just twice since 1962. Oklahoma State then goes to Kansas State and they have never beaten the Wildcats in Manhattan when Bill Snyder is the head coach.
Sbgglobal has Texas Tech a three-point favorite against Oklahoma State. It should be an entertaining game in terms of side and total odds at the bookmaker but it is not scheduled for ABC or ESPN which is too bad as it will be fun to watch.
