Bet on Oklahoma (-21) Because…
After losing 2 out of their first 3 games this season, Oklahoma has won 5 straight. The Sooners have gone 3 and 2 ATS in those 5 straight wins. There are good reasons for Oklahoma’s 2 ATS losses in their last 5. They tackled Texas on Oct. 8 in the Red River Rivalry. Although Oklahoma beat the Longhorns 45 to 40, they were favored to win by 11.5. The Red River Rivalry is always a tough game.
Oklahoma outscored Texas Tech 66 to 59 in an SU win on Oct. 22. The Red Raiders statistically have the best offense in college football. Not only that, but Oklahoma was on the road for that game.
The Sooners have now out-rushed each of their five conference foes this season by an average of almost 150 yards per game.
Bet on Iowa State (+21) Because…
The Cyclones have been competitive this season. Iowa State is 5-1 against the spread in their last 6 games. The Cyclones have covered against TCU, San Jose State, Baylor, Oklahoma State on the road, and Kansas State.
Earlier this year as a 17-point underdog, Iowa State led Baylor basically the entire game before losing on a field goal at the buzzer. And just after that, as 14-point underdogs, the Cyclones led Oklahoma State by 17 points in the third quarter before giving way in a 38-31 defeat. So the Cyclones have given good performances against quality foes before.
ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
Based on the initial betting trends, it’s tough to back Oklahoma to cover in this game. The Sooners are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 Thursday games. They are also 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against the spread.
To make things more difficult for Oklahoma in this game, the Sooner defense allows 437.6 total yards per game. Opponents average 32.5 points per against Oklahoma this season.
But none of that is likely to matter in this matchup. The Oklahoma Sooners may not be a great ATS covering team in 2016. One thing they have been is a great covering team against Iowa State in recent years. Those are the trends that I think win out on Thursday night.
Oklahoma is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these 2. The Sooners are also 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Iowa State. I am betting that Oklahoma wins this game by at least 31 points making the Sooners my Week 10 college football against the spread betting pick.
