Why Bet the Oklahoma State Cowboys Odds at -6.5?

Why bet on Oklahoma State in this Week 11 showdown? Because they have one of the best offenses in the country and a Heisman Trophy candidate in quarterback Mason Rudolph!Oklahoma State lost an absolutely thrilling shootout against rival Oklahoma in their Bedlam Series matchup last weekend 62-52 while failing to cover the chalk as a 1-point home favorite. Still, the Cowboys have some big-time bowl game hopes and want to win this contest against a quality opponent.“It’s important for me to instill in the players the importance of the next game,” said Cowboys coach Mike Gundy. “That’s why it’s beneficial for us that they can turn the tape on and watch what they (the Cyclones) have done against TCU and Oklahoma.”Again, Gundy knows his team will have its hands full against the Cyclones this weekend.“I don’t think anybody could say they would have predicted that they would go on the road and beat Oklahoma,” Gundy said. “And then, as well as TCU is playing this year, that they could’ve to beat them.“They’re in every game, or they win against people that somebody thought they didn’t have a chance against. You watch them play, and they’re humble; they’re unselfish; they play hard; they’re in the right spot.”Mason Rudolph has been impressed with the Cyclones as well this season even in what has been a Heisman Trophy kind of campaign.“They do it well,” Rudolph said. “They’ve been very good defensively, holding teams down. But we’ve seen that style for two years now. We’ve seen it this year. And we’ve got a running game to help offset that.”

Why Bet the Iowa State Cyclones Odds at +6.5?

Why bet the on the Cyclones to cover the chalk in this contest? Because they have a powerful defense and some desperation right now!Streaking Iowa State ended up on the wrong end of a narrow 20-16 road loss against West Virginia while finishing the contest in a Push as 4-point underdogs. Nevertheless, the Cyclones have their own big-time bowl games hopes for the first time since 2012 after knocking off both, nationally-ranked Oklahoma and TCU earlier this season. The Cyclones were picked ninth, ahead of only Kansas, in the Big 12 preseason media poll.“It’s where you want to be in college football,” Cyclones coach Matt Campbell said. “You want to be in it, in November. If someone were to ask me that a year and a half ago, I don’t know if I would have said this is where we’d be. But that’s a great credit to these kids.”Iowa State is not favored by the NCAAF Betting Lines.Campbell says his team will be focused despite their heartbreaking loss last weekend, one of the reasons they are the underdog at the NCAAF betting lines.“That’s the thing I love about these kids: win, lose, scoreboard, what it says, what it doesn’t say, I think, is really irrelevant,” Campbell said. “I think nothing showed that more than what happened Saturday. It was irrelevant. The scoreboard was what it is.

Expert Analysis and Prediction

Oklahoma State might average almost 15 points per game more than Iowa State (45.3 ppg-30.6 ppg) but the Cyclones limit their opponents to just 18.9 points per contest while Oklahoma State gives up almost 10 points per game more than their opponents in this one (28.6 ppg).Oklahoma State has won five straight in this series and the favorite has gone 9-3 ATS in the last dozen meetings, but right about now, I don’t think Iowa State gives a damn about the past!Besides, the home team in this rivalry has gone 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the Cyclones have gone 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and a blistering 9-2 ATS in their last 11 home games.With Oklahoma State going just 2-5 ATS in their last seven conference games and an identical 2-5 ATS in their last seven games in the month of November, I’m thinking Mason Rudolph and company are in danger of not only failing to cover the chalk but losing this game outright. Back the Iowa State Cyclones to cover the chalk and push Oklahoma State really, really hard for the outright win!Pick: Iowa State +6.5
