The Bedlam Series is one of college football’s great in-state rivalries and on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET in Boone Pickens Stadium, No. 7 Oklahoma and No. 21 Oklahoma State will meet for the 114th time. The Sooners hold a staggering 88-18-7 edge all-time and have won the last four games in a row outright, but bettors have been riding the Cowboys to big success this season. Oklahoma State is 9-2 against the spread this season while Oklahoma is a disappointing 4-7 against the number. The Sooners are 13.5-point favorites, up a point from the opening line, and the total is down to 68.5 from 69.5 in the latest Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State odds. Before you make your college football predictions for Rivalry Week, be sure to check out the Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State picks from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen huge returns since its inception. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $4,000 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it over that time is way up.
Now, it has simulated Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning over, and it’s also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in over 60 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
The model knows that the Cowboys lean heavily on running back Chuba Hubbard, who leads the nation in rushing with a staggering 1,832 yards and 20 touchdowns on the season. Hubbard has accounted for 2,002 yards from scrimmage this season and has had four 200-yard rushing games this season.
The Cowboys are predictably 4-0 in those games and they’ve also covered in all four. The Sooners’ defense has struggled of late, allowing 36 points per game in the last four contests. They’re allowing 5.1 yards per carry during that span, so you can expect to see an extremely heavy dose of Hubbard on Saturday as the Cowboys look to control the clock and keep the dynamic Oklahoma offense off the field.
Oklahoma, meanwhile, has clinched a spot in the Big 12 title game, but needs this victory to remain in the College Football Playoff picture. The Sooners’ only loss of the season came against Baylor, who will be their opponent in that championship matchup. A win over the Bears would give Jalen Hurts and company an argument to be included in the four-team playoff, but a win over their rivals this weekend is a necessity to even have that conversation.
A couple numbers to consider for this matchup: The Cowboys enter the contest with 475.6 yards per game on average, good for 13th best in the nation. But the Sooners are even better, ranking first in the league when it comes to yards per game, with 574.7 on average.
