Why Bet on the Oklahoma State Cowboys?

Last season, the Cowboys were known as a more defensive team than an offensive program. Not this season. In 2022, Oklahoma has returned to their high-scoring ways.

Heading into week 5, few college football teams have dominated on the scoreboard as much as Oklahoma State. The Pokes average 512 yards per game. Oklahoma State scores 51.7 pointes each time they step onto the field. The scoring average ranks first in college football.

No doubt, the 2022 Oklahoma State Cowboys will go as far as their offense takes them. But just because Mike Gundy’s team relies more on their offense than they do their defense, it doesn’t mean Oklahoma State can’t play D.

The Pokes allow less than 377 yards per game on average. Opponents rush for just 111.3 yards each contest. Oklahoma State’s D allows 22.7 points per game, making it one of the better units in the conference.

Why Bet on the Clemson Tigers?

Stats-wise, Baylor’s offense doesn’t compare to Oklahoma State’s. But the Bears have played better teams. So Baylor’s 40.5 points per impresses. Blake Shapen, the Bears’ starting quarterback, completes 69% of his passes.

Shapen has thrown a single pick this season while throwing 7 touchdowns. Shapen hands the ball off to stellar running back Richard Reese. Baylor’s RB1 averages 5.7 yards per carry.

Baylor head coach Dave Aranda believes the key to great defense is to first stop the run. The Bears allows less than 80 yards per game on the ground. Once Aranda’s defense stops the run, players turn their attention to the passing game. Opponents throw for less than 226 yards each game. Teams average less than 17 points each contest.

  • Cowboys are 9-1-1 ATS in the last 11 conference games.
  • Oklahoma State is 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games.

  • Under is 5-1 in Baylor’s last 6 games following a straight up win.

Oklahoma State vs. Baylor Expert Betting Predictions

Any team that averages over 50 points is a quality squad. The Cowboys don’t just average over 50 points. The Pokes also allow less than 24. But although Oklahoma State has a shot to win this game, the Cowboys face one of the top teams in the nation on Saturday. Baylor is a few unlucky plays away from being undefeated.

Almost as important? The Bears have a quality road win versus Iowa State while Oklahoma State’s best performance came against a bad Arizona State squad. In addition, this happens on Baylor’s field. The Bears are 8-1 against the spread in their last 9 at home. There’s no reason to believe the Bears don’t make it 9-of-10 against the spread at McLane Stadium.
