TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20TH
#411 OKLAHOMA ST (-10′) over Texas Tech at 8 PM EST
Checking in at No. 9 in the most recent College Football Playoff rankings and off that massive 63-17 home win and cover over TCU, Oklahoma State will travel to Lubbock on Saturday night and impress the voters once again with another dominant performance over Texas Tech. The Red Raiders check into this Big 12 battle off a stunning home upset win over the Cyclones and they’ll have their hands full in this matchup.
Considering the Cowboys own a 1-2 SU and 0-3 ATS mark in their last three meetings in this series, there is absolutely no way they will take this game lightly. This is actually a solid wagering spot for OSU too. When priced as a favorite of -7 or more and coming off a conference game, the Pokes own a reliable 38-17-2 ATS mark provided they are not fighting with revenge. In this setting battling an opponent that holds a pointspread won/loss percentage of .600 or less, the ‘Boys improve to a highly profitable 33-9-2 ATS.
Last Saturday, Texas Tech was a +10.5-point home dog to Iowa State and won outright 41-38. That upset win places the Red Raiders in a really tough spot this week. Since 1980, college football home underdogs that won straight up as a pup priced at +10 or more last hold a feeble 56-79-2 ATS mark provided their opponent enters with confidence off two or more straight up wins. If our “play against” side is tackling a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage greater than .750, this situation falls to a miserable 27-50-1 ATS including an ugly 17-41-1 ATS if we take the field off a conference game. That spells trouble for Tech.
With the support of a stop unit that is ranked No. 7 in the FBS in scoring (16.3 ppg) and No. 3 in total defense (276.6 ypg), the Cowboys will keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive with an impressive performance under the Saturday night lights in Lubbock. Take Oklahoma State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
