Welcome to the CFB Betting Rundown: Sooner State Edition. For real, I didn’t even realize that all three of my plays this week were on Oklahoma-based teams until re-read them at the end. Out of all them all, though, I’m really high on newly-ranked Oklahoma State to cover in Lubbock, despite the spotty track record for teams making their first appearance in the AP Poll.
So, if you’re superstitious about betting on teams from the same state, at least lock that one in. I’m not in the camp of skeptics just yet, but if we crash and burn this week, I very well could be.
Beyond that, I’m rolling with Oklahoma against Kansas and Tulsa in its game against No. 24 SMU. Oddly enough, none of these teams are actually playing in the state this weekend. While that might look troubling, I’ve definitely got my reasons for why the rundown ended looking like this ahead of Week 6, so keep it locked and I’ll get there.
For now, just try and get over the fact that I’m banking three different teams, within the same state lines, to have a good Saturday and focus on the value.
We’ll see how this intro ages.
