Point spread: Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma

The college football Week 13 preview and point spread for the game Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma.

Point spread: Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma After Texas lost the Friday game against Texas A&M - an opening for Oklahoma (9-2) to take a shot at the Big 12 title, when it welcomes Oklahoma State (6-5) on Saturday. With the national championship out of sight and the surprising loss Texas took - this game is turning into one of the most betting events for the weekend, with the majority of the punters picking Oklahoma as their favorite. At the online sportsbook Bodog, the point spread on the Oklahoma State vs. Oklahoma is currently sitting at -13 points chalk the Sooners with expected total of 67 points.

 Would Oklahoma be able to cover this spread remains uncertain. Quarterback Sam Bradford remains questionable after a concussion and top-rusher DeMarco Murray is out for the game against Oklahoma State with leg injury. But that's not all, Sooners wide receivers Ryan Broyles and Adron Tennell are out for the game and questionable are defensive tackle Steven Coleman and the defensive ends Alan Davis and Auston English. These injuries will definitely reflect on the score this Saturday and the point spread may be sitting a little too high, although a victory is almost certain. Offensively Oklahoma State has the edge with 513.9 yards per game, compared to the Sooners with 469.2 yards. But defensively the Cowboys give away over 110 yards more than Oklahoma and if quarterback Sam Bradford is able to take part in the game, the Sooners will take advantage of these stats.

 Betting trends indicate that Oklahoma State is 5-2 against the spread in its last 7 games on the road. Oklahoma, on the other side, is 9-3 against the spread in its last 12 games at home, but Oklahoma is 1-6 ATS in its last 7 games. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Oklahoma's last 5 games when playing Oklahoma State.
