Sports betting service CG Technology released the first win totals of any outlet for the 2017 college football season and the over/under on Oklahoma States has been set at 9.
This total does not include bowl games or conference championship games. Based on that, last year’s total was also 9. Here’s how some other Big 12 teams looked according to the odds.
- Oklahoma – 9.5
- Oklahoma State – 9
- Texas – 7.5
- Kansas State – 7.5
- West Virginia – 7
- TCU – 7
- Texas Tech – 6.5
The Cowboys have a tougher non-conference schedule than people probably give credit for with a trip to South Alabama (not a gimme) and a road trip to Pitt. Don’t look past Tulsa either with a Philip Montgomery offense that they hope will be a plug-and-play duplicate of what he ran at Baylor.
If the Cowboys make it into conference play unblemished, the Big 12 season sets up nicely (or nicer) with Oklahoma, TCU and Baylor coming to Boone Pickens Stadium.
This season looks to be a big one for Oklahoma State and the 9-win total shows that’s not just a local sentiment. That puts the Cowboys in the same company with teams like Clemson, LSU, Michigan and Louisville. The only two teams set at double-digit win totals were Alabama (10.5) and Ohio State (10).
Can we just fast forward to September?
