Cowboys 2023 Schedule & Betting Odds
Oklahoma State 2021 Season
Mike Gundy’s Cowboys bring a big weight of expectations into the 2021 season after reaching as high as No. 6 in the AP Poll in the 2020 season. Although road losses to unranked Texas and TCU ended aspirations of the Big 12 Championship, Oklahoma State ended its season with an emphatic victory in the Cheez-It Bowl over Miami.
Oddsmakers expect another competitive season from the Cowboys: Their regular-season win total sits at 7.5 wins, which is the same as the Texas Longhorns at many sportsbooks. Bettors looking for information on the Oklahoma State football schedule, injuries, point spreads, player props or futures can find all that here.
Betting on the Oklahoma State Cowboys
Oklahoma State Spread
Despite finishing the season 7-3, bettors who backed the Cowboys likely lost money in 2020, as Oklahoma State went only 4-6 against the spread (ATS). The point spread is one of the most common bets in college football; it's a wager on whether or not the favorite will win by a certain number of points.
Let’s use an example to illustrate:
- Oklahoma Sooners (+2.5)
- Oklahoma State Cowboys (-2.5)
The favored team is denoted with a minus sign (-), while the underdog is given a plus sign (+). In this case, Oklahoma State is a 2.5-point favorite over the visiting Sooners. That means that bets on the Cowboys to cover the spread would win only if State won the game by a field goal or more. Tickets on the Sooners would cash if Oklahoma won the game outright or lost by just one or two points.
Oklahoma State Moneylines
Instead of worrying about a margin of victory, many bettors prefer to wager on the moneyline instead. The moneyline is a bet on which team will win the game outright. Just like point spreads, the favored team is marked with a minus sign (-) and the underdog with a plus (+).
Reusing our example from earlier, we get moneyline odds that look like this:
- Oklahoma Sooners +110
- Oklahoma State Cowboys -130
The numbers next to the +/- signs are the odds, written in American format. It’s easiest to understand them in increments of $10 or $100. Since the Cowboys are -130 favorites, that means it would take a bet of $130 to win $100 if Oklahoma State won the game. Betting on the underdog Sooners at +110 means a $100 wager wins $110 if Oklahoma wins the game outright.
Oklahoma State Over/Unders
There’s also an easy way to bet on Oklahoma State games that doesn’t involve betting them to win or lose by any number of points: Over/unders, also referred to as totals, are bets on the number of points both teams combine to score.
If the total for our game above was 58 points, over bettors would need more points than that to cash their ticket, while the under would win if fewer points were scored. In the event of an exact tie (58 points on the dot in this case), wagers on the total would “push,” and all bettors would be refunded their initial wager.
Oklahoma State Props
Prop bets are bets that can’t be neatly sorted into one of the above categories. They cover an assortment of bets from wagers on one player’s statistical output to the exact number of points a team will win by.
Player props are any type of bet on one player’s performance in a given game: For example, you could bet on RB LD Brown to go over or under a certain number of rushing yards, receiving yards, or a combination of them. You could also bet on him to score the first touchdown, or the last touchdown, or a touchdown at any time.
Game props are most often on discrete events across a Cowboys game, such as who will win the coin toss, whether or not the first kickoff will be a touchback, or which quarterback will throw for more yards. Make sure to shop for the best props with the Action Network app.
Oklahoma State Futures
Not every bet wins or loses at the final whistle: Futures are bets on markets that won’t resolve until the end of the season, like bets on who wins the Heisman or the national championship.
Most futures are bet before the season starts, but books will often keep their most popular futures markets open all season long. Future bets can be on a team’s performance, like betting the Cowboys' season win total over or that Oklahoma State will win the Big 12, or they can be on an individual, like QB Spencer Sanders to throw for a certain amount of touchdowns or to win the Heisman.
