Oklahoma vs. Iowa State Pick
As you may have already noticed in the table atop this post, our PRO Projection for this game is quite a ways removed from the actual line that’s available across most of the market.
Our college football model — compiled by Collin Wilson — sets the true line for this game at Oklahoma -2, a four-point difference from the listed line of -6.
That earns Iowa State an A+ value grade, but not simply because of the difference of four points.
It’s also worth noting that the projection sits on the other side of the most important number in football betting, +3, as well as another key number in +4, meaning a 3- or 4-point Iowa State loss would still send Cyclone backers home happy.
PRO Projection pick: Iowa State +6
