Why Bet The Iowa State Cyclones To Beat The Sooners
Iowa State needs to return to rushing the ball to win. In the first four weeks sophomore RB David Montgomery rushed 321 yards and four TDs. His yards per carry average? A stellar 5.7! But Iowa State unsuccessfully tried to open things up with its passing game in the first half last week, which forced the Cylcones to abandon the running game after going down by14. Montgomery finished with 34 yards on nine carries, while Park threw the ball 48 times. Iowa State lost 17-7.
Oklahoma’s defense is under the microscope this week. They give up an average of 134.3 rushing yards per game. The OU defense allowed the Baylor Bears to rack up 41 points and 523 total yards last week.
Why Bet The Oklahoma Sooners To Beat The Cyclones
The Sooners may have struggled against Baylor last week, but they again found a way to win. It has been 371 days since their last loss and 714 days since they last lost a conference game. Their 17 consecutive Big 12 wins matches the longest in school history. They have also won 13 consecutive true road games, the nation’s longest active streak. Can ISU put a stop to Sooner streak?
Oklahoma’s offense has one speed. Fast and dominant. The Sooners average 48.0 points per game this season; only Oklahoma State, Louisville, and SMU average higher. Heisman Trophy candidate QB Baker Mayfield is jet fuel this offense runs on. He has thrown for 1329 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2017. He’s the only Big12 starting QB who has thrown zero picks.
