Oklahoma State Cowboys vs Oklahoma Sooners
Play on: UNDER 77 -110
With all due respect to the offenses, which are obviously both very capable, this number is awfully high. To give some perspective, last season’s meeting had an O/U line of 62.5. The previous year, the O/U line for a game between these teams had an O/U line of 57.5. Granted, both those lines turned out to be too low, as each game finished above the total.
The Cowboys limited TCU to a mere six points last time out, a dominant defensive effort. The Sooners weren’t as stingy but weren’t terrible defensively either; they held WVU to 28 points. Not bad considering that the Mountaineers came in averaging 32.6 ppg and 506.8 ypg at home.
Even including the 12/6/14 meeting between these teams here, which produced 71 points, the Sooners have seen the “under” go 16-4 their last 20 games played in the month of December. A look at some more recent history reveals that the Cowboys were underdogs of greater than a field goal three times this season. All three of those games (at TCU, vs. WVU and at Baylor) fell below the number by double-digits. Consider the Under.
