Oklahoma State vs. Baylor NCAA Football Betting Preview

October 29, 2011

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are sitting in the catbird’s seat in terms of playing in the national championship game with OSU No.3 in the BCS standings thanks to rival Oklahoma’s upset loss last week. So one would presume that the Pokes wouldn’t look past a dangerous Baylor team this week, but OSU does face co-Big 12 leader Kansas State next weekend. Oklahoma State is a 14-point betting favorite over Baylor on

Two of the league’s top passers will make this afternoon showdown a must-see. Robert Griffin III and Brandon Weeden both have a case as the best QB in the league, with two of the Big 12′s best receiving corps. Expect big points in this one, but Oklahoma State is trying to stay on track in a new role as the Big 12′s resident national title contender.

This features two explosive offenses. In fact, the Bears are second in the country in total offense with 550 yards per game and the Cowboys are third with 549. In terms of scoring, Oklahoma State ranks second while Baylor is sixth. However, the big difference comes on the defensive side of the ball where Oklahoma State has allowed 27 points per game (65th nationally) and Baylor has given up 33 (101st nationally).

Griffin leads the nation in completion percentage (78.0), passing efficiency (205.7) and points responsible for (24.0 ppg). He has thrown for 1,950 yards, with 22 TDs and just two INTs. Weeden has completed 71.8 percent of his passes thus far, for 2,436 yards and 19 TDs. He has arguably the nation’s top target in Biletnikoff Award winner Justin Blackmon (61 receptions, 662 yards, eight TDs) at his disposal.

Oklahoma State leads the all-time series with Baylor by a 17-12 count. Oklahoma State has won five straight and 14 of the last 15. The loss came in 2005 (Mike Gundy’s first year). OSU has won nine straight home games against the Bears, dating back to 1939. Oklahoma State has scored at least 34 points in the last 12 games of the series. In last year’s contest against Baylor, OSU set a school record with 725 yards of total offense as the No. 19 Cowboys knocked off the No. 22 Bears, 55-28. Blackmon had 173 receiving yards with a TD and a 69-yard TD run.

Sportsbook Advisor take: The line is Oklahoma State -14 and the total is a whopping 81 points. In the office we are leaning toward taking the points and the over.
