Why Bet on Pittsburgh Panthers?

Well, the Pittsburgh Panthers are going to have to play a really quality football game to beat a really talented Oklahoma State team. Head Coach Pat Narduzzi is going to need a game plan that slows down the talented Oklahoma State offense. Pittsburgh is allowing 27 points per game.

The offense is going to have to improve as well. The Panthers are ranked 105th in the nation with 163.5 passing yards per game. Max Browne has not been great in the early going for the Panthers. Qadree Ollison, the top running back for Pittsburgh is averaging 83.5 points per game, and 2 touchdowns on the season.

Why Bet on Oklahoma State Cowboys?

The Cowboys are a team that could be playing for a national title this season. The Cowboys will eventually have to compete with Oklahoma out of the Big 12. Before then, Oklahoma State has this game, and then ranked TCU next week. The Cowboys rank 18th in the country in passing yards and 22nd in rushing yards. Combined, they are averaging 569 yards.

Is OSU a safe bet in the college football odds?

The offense is anchored by quarterback Mason Rudolph. A heisman hopeful has thrown for 638 yards and 6 touchdowns on the season. Justice Hill is the top running threat, and James Washington leads the team with 3 touchdown receptions. Oklahoma State starts the game ranked 9th in the most recent Associated Press poll.

Cowboys Blow out Panthers

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are going to roll the Pittsburgh Panthers in this game. The offense for the Cowboys is too good for the Panthers to keep up with. Look for Rudolph to torch the Pittsburgh defense, with Washington having a big game, with likely over 150 receiving yards in this game.

Oklahoma State not only wins, but wins big over Pittsburgh. The Panthers were a team that was ranked in some polls at the beginning of the season, but with back to back losses, they start the season in trouble. Bet on the Oklahoma State Cowboys -14 over the Pittsburgh Panthers on Saturday.
