Oklahoma State at Kansas State – Another team we’ve ridden to paydirt is Oklahoma State (6-1), including a Week 7 Pick against TCU and Week 8 lean and victory over Texas with the Cowboys missing some players to injury. Now Oklahoma State catches a Kansas State (5-2) with injury issues and down it’s top two QB’s including Adrian Martinez, who was knocked out early last week with a leg injury and is a game-time decision vs Oklahoma State (don’t count on him). Middle LB Daniel Green was injured and is also a game time decision. Bottom line, injuries, fatigue and beat up bodies take its toll on teams, and we’re riding the Cowboys again with the league’s leading passer Spencer Sanders (290 YPG) against the wobbly Wildcats. The Cowboys deficient pass defense (303 YPG) may not be taken advantage of this week with the K-State injuries and the Wildcats running more with their league-high rushing attack (232 YPG). Oklahoma State had a good lead at undefeated TCU two weeks ago before blowing the game in a 43-40 OT loss. The Cowboys are 3-0 ATS as ‘Dog this season and on a 13-1 ATS run in Big 12 regular season games.
Types of bets and how to read the odds
AP Top 25 Games
If you’re looking for a big match-up edge at the point of attack, then go hog wild with the Razorbacks this week. Arkansas (-3.5) travels to the Plains to run all over Auburn and their lame duck head coach Bryan Harsin. Both teams off a bye, and Arkansas pound the ground rushing attack is elite averaging 245 yards per game vs FBS foes and a never stop 50 rushing attempts per game. Duel QB KJ Jefferson has 18 total TD’s (4 rushing) and just 1 INT, and Jefferson completes the Razorbacks 200 Club top, balanced offense profile with 225 passing YPG. Sure the Arkansas defenses is deficient which is why this should be a higher scoring game over 60 points. But the Auburn rush defense is allowing 226 YPG vs FBS opponents. Go Hog wild on the bowl bound Razorbacks against the timid Tigers.

No. 1 Georgia tackles Florida this week in the Cocktail Party in Jacksonville, and Florida is worth a bet as big ‘Dog. The battle of Michigan is a big one, and the No. 4 Wolverines are also laying a huge price vs Michigan State, but all the stats suggest Big Blue can bury Sparty in the Big House. No. 2 Ohio State is laying more than 2 TD’s at No. 13 Penn State, while No. 3 Tennessee also tries to remain undefeated in a top 25 matchup against Kentucky
