Arguably the most anticipated Bedlam in the history of the rivalry is upon us.
The Oklahoma Sooners will play the Oklahoma State Cowboys for the last time as in-conference rivals as the Sooners are set to leave for the SEC next season — a move that upset many Cowboy fans.
The Cowboys are currently ranked No. 7 in the AP poll released on Sunday, while the Sooners are ranked No. 9. Both teams have an outside shot at the College Football Playoff and control their own destiny to play in the Big 12 Championship.
Oklahoma State opened as 3-point home favorites at Circa Sportsbook. Considering there are at least three points built-in to this matchup with Oklahoma State being at home in a hostile environment, the sportsbooks consider this a very even matchup.
Oklahoma State is 10-1 on the season. But more importantly, it is 9-2 against the spread and has covered nine-straight games. The Cowboys are one of the best teams against the spread in the entire country.
Oklahoma has had some more struggles this season despite also holding a 10-1 record. It switched quarterbacks mid-season and it has had a tough time covering most spreads. The Sooners are 4-6 ATS but 4-2 ATS since they switched quarterbacks from Spencer Rattler to Caleb Williams.
Action Network’s college football insider Brett McMurphy has the Cowboys ranked No. 6 on his AP ballot while the Sooners are ranked No. 10.
Action Network’s senior college football writer Collin Wilson sees it as a more evenly matched game with Oklahoma State ranked No. 8 and Oklahoma ranked No. 9 in his College Football Betting Power Ratings
Considering this is a massive rivalry game with many postseason implications and it being the most difficult opponent on each team’s schedule, it’s one of those games that you can throw past history out the window.
Many people would be surprised if this game does not come down to the wire as a one-score game. In those games, it’s typically smart to take the underdog and have a few extra points in hand.
But it will be difficult to bet against the home crowd in a game where the Cowboys absolutely want to prove they belong in the same conversations as Oklahoma despite Oklahoma leaving them for a better conference.
Action Network will be tracking this game throughout the week to identify where the sharp money is and why this line is moving one way or another.
