Tulsa gets home opener

Tulsa gets to go home after opening up the season with road games against Michigan State and San Jose State. The Golden Hurricanes are 1-1 overall, 2-0 against the spread and 2-0 with the under.

The Golden Hurricanes haven’t been very impressive on offense thus far, averaging just 20.5 points and 309.5 yards per game. The defense has at least held up, giving up just 22 points and 325.5 yards per contest. Quarterback Zach Smith has thrown for 436 yards and two touchdowns to lead the offense while Shamari Brooks has rushed for 140 yards and a score. Sam Crawford Jr. is the leading receiver with 14 catches for 186 yards and a touchdown.

Oklahoma State still an offensive power

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are off to a 2-0 start thanks to double-digit wins over Oregon State and McNeese State. The Cowboys have covered the spread in both games while hitting the over in both as well.

Oklahoma State is continuing its offensive dominance this year, as the Cowboys are putting up 54 points and 567.5 yards per game thus far on offense. Defensively, Oklahoma State is giving up 25 points and 383 yards per contest. Spencer Sanders has thrown for 453 yards and six touchdowns while also rushing for 160 yards to lead this offense. Chuba Hubbard is the leading rusher with 265 yards and four touchdowns while Tylan Wallace has 10 receptions for 272 yards and five scores. Amen Ogbongbemiga is leading the defense with 17 tackles and two sacks.

College Football Betting Trends

Tulsa

The Golden Hurricanes have hit the over in five of their last six against Big 12 opponents, but have hit the under in eight of their last nine against a winning team.

Oklahoma State

The Cowboys have hit the over in six of their last eight road games and in 27 of their last 38 games on fieldturf.

Prediction:

I am not sure there is a defense out there that will completely stop Oklahoma State. The Cowboys just know how to put up points. Tulsa is likely to be overwhelmed on defense, even with its respectable numbers on that side of the ball. I would suspect Tulsa will see an uptick on offense with more possessions and going against a soft defense as the game progresses. Look for the over to hit in this one as the Cowboys continue to put up lofty numbers.
