Why Bet The Oklahoma State Cowboys To Beat The Panthers
The Cowboys are 2-0 both SU and ATS this season, after dispatching South Alabama on Friday 44-7, covering at minus-28. Oklahoma State opened this season with a 59-24 triumph over Tulsa, covering at minus-20. They are averaging 51.5 points per game after the first two weeks.
Leading this hot offense is Senior QB Mason Rudolph. He has accounted for eight touchdowns through two games. Meanwhile, the Cowboys defense held the Jaguars to a one-for-10 performance on third-down conversions.
Why Bet The Pittsburgh Panthers To Beat The Cowboys
Pittsburgh is 1-1 this season, after falling at Penn State on Saturday 33-14.
Pitt outplayed Penn State 342 total yards to 312 last weekend. The problem came when they didn’t take care of the football. You can’t get into the Big Ten champions’ house and turn the ball three times. The Panthers controlled the clock as well 38:20 to 21:40.
The Panthers have the No. 80 passing defense in the country at 237.5 yards per game allowed. They finished last season at No. 127 — second-worst in the FBS. But outside of that slight improvement, the Panthers feel that while they’ve been fooled once by the Oklahoma State passing attack, they should be better prepared for round two.
If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:
- Cowboys are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.
- Cowboys are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.
- Panthers are 28-13-1 ATS in their last 42 games following a straight up loss.
- Panthers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog.
Oklahoma State Vs. Pittsburgh Week 3 Betting Analysis:
These two teams met last September in a 45-38 Cowboys victory in Stillwater. I expect a similar outcome and am betting on Oklahoma State to cover the two TD spread.
