College football betting expectations are high on the Cowboys as they are expected to contend for the Big 12 South division title against the NCAA betting lines. Oklahoma State enters this college football betting matchup with a record of 3-1 straight up but just 1-2 against the NCAA betting lines.
The Cowboys last played on September 26 when they clobbered Grambling 56-6 in a game that was not on the college football betting board. Oklahoma State’s lone college football betting defeat was in week 2 at the hands of Houston 35-45 in which they failed to cover as 15.5-point home chalks.
The loss left many college football betting handicappers with some skepticism about just how good the Cowboys are and whether they were an overlay. Quarterback Zac Robinson has not lived up to the preseason college football betting hype so far.
It’s not that Robinson has been bad but he has suffered a drop-off from 9.8 yards per attempt last year to 8.2 yards per attempt this year. Robinson hit on 65% of his passes in 2008 compared to just 59% this year.
The Texas A&M Aggies got a stiff reality check last week in a 19-47 blowout loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX. The Aggies college football betting record fell to 3-1 straight up and 2-2 against the spread with the loss. A&M actually outgained the Razorbacks 458-434 and held a 28-16 first down advantage.
The Aggie defense is the problem as they show no signs of resembling the famed “Wrecking Crew” of the past. They allowed Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett 271 yards passing and 4 touchdowns. Texas A&M ranks 70th in college football betting for points allowed.
Oklahoma State has covered 6 out of their last 9 games against the spread on the road. These two teams have gone over the total in 4 out of their last 5 head to head matchups.
