Oklahoma State-Oklahoma Betting Preview

Week 12 of the college football schedule starts to see a few more rivalry games appear with the big matchup coming tonight in the annual Bedlam game between Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Kick off is 7:30 p.m. ET at OU's Memorial Stadium.

The Sooners (5-2) have bounced back from a 1-2 start with four straight wins over Texas, TCU, Texas Tech and Kansas. Lincoln Riley has the offense cranked up to its usual fashion and comes into the contest ranked sixth nationally in scoring at 46.1 points per game. While OU has taken advantage of struggling teams in the Big 12 to right the ship, they have had trouble with the better teams on their schedule recently with just a 2-6 ATS record in their last 8 games versus teams with a winning record.

Oklahoma State (5-1) certainly fits that category behind a defense that is ranked 14th in the nation in scoring at 17.8 points per game. The Cowboys only blemish came at home against Texas three weeks ago. But Mike Gundy's team has been especially tough on the road with a 6-2-1 ATS record in their last 9 road games and 5-0 ATS record in their last 5 as a road underdog.

Vegas opened with the Sooners as 9.5-point favorite and a score total of 58 points. Dunkel is backing Oklahoma State with the Cowboys only a 1.5-point underdog according to the Index and also has the total going over with a score total of 73.375 points. 

Dunkel's Pick: Oklahoma State (+-9.5; Over).
