We don’t yet know what Oklahoma State will look like on Sept. 4 when it opens the season against Missouri State, so naturally it’s borderline impossible to predict how the team will look by the end of the regular season.
However, early betting lines are already out for some games on OSU’s schedule, and of note, the Pokes are double-digit dogs in their regular-season finale vs. rival Oklahoma.
Sportsbetting.ag has OU favored by 10.5 points in the Bedlam matchup slated for Nov. 27 in Stillwater. That’s one of two games on the board for OSU in which it is currently an underdog at this juncture (in addition to Texas).
Although being an underdog isn’t a surprise, being a double-digit dog is. Still, that’s likely going to be expected in 2021 with OU entering the year as a potential playoff contender. The Sooners right now are favored in every game on the board (Texas, Nebraska, Iowa State and Tulane).
OSU has won just twice in the Bedlam football series under Mike Gundy and once — in 2011 — in Bedlam games in Stillwater. There have no doubt been some close ones on OSU’s turf, though, like the 62-52 loss in 2017; the 33-24 loss in 2013; the 47-41 loss in 2010; and the 27-21 loss in 2006. I could go on, but history suggests this game will likely be close. (I’ll spare you what history suggests about the outcome!)
