Week 11 offers one of the greatest and most intense rivalries in college football that also will have high stakes for the Big 12 Conference. When the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys get together the moniker is “Bedlam” and appropriately so. While Oklahoma has had undeniable dominance in the series it is not from a lack of passionate effort by the Cowboys. And when the Pokes prevail it’s the greatest feeling in the world for their fans. But this year Okie State will be limping into Owen Field as a decided and well-deserved road dog to a resurgent Sooner squad in the hunt for the college football playoff.
This matchup in Week 11 will take place on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 3:30 p.m. ET from Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma. ABC will provide television coverage for Bedlam.

Live Betting Odds Analysis
Oklahoma is going to be the popular live betting pick with the public and that is usually the case even when Okie State has a good team. Since the Cowpokes are slumping it stands to figure that the Sooners could be bet into overlay status.
Oklahoma has a record of 8-1 straight up and 4-5 against the spread with eight of their nine games going over the total. The Sooners are coming off a 51-46 win at the Texas Tech Red Raiders last Saturday night as 14-point overlays.
Oklahoma State is 5-4 straight up and 4-5 against the spread with five of their games going over the total. The Cowboys are coming off a 35-31 loss at Baylor last Saturday as six-point chalks.
Oklahoma State has been a good road dog betting value recently with five payouts in their last seven in that role. Four of the Cowboys last five games as a road dog have gone under the total.
Balanced against that is Oklahoma’s impressive record as a home favorite against the Cowpokes. To show the Sooners have paid out in 12 of their last 15 games laying points at Memorial Stadium. Just one of OU’s last six games as a home chalk have gone over the total.
As usual Oklahoma State has a strong offense and weak defense. But this year the defense has been extra bad. For example, the Cowboys rank 10th in the country for total offense but 83rd for scoring defense.
But Oklahoma has one of the best offenses in the country and a defense that is showing improvement. OU ranks second in the country for total offense and 60th for total defense. While the defensive ranking is not dominant its been improving since Ruffin McNeil took over as coordinator.
Head to Head
Oklahoma has owned this series with 13 straight up wins in the last 15 meetings with Oklahoma State. In that same span OU has come away with the cash a total of 11 times. Just one of the last five Bedlam get togethers have gone under the total. Although Oklahoma State has covered in two of their last three visits to Oklahoma the Sooners have paid in five of the last seven overall. Two of the last three in this series at Owen Field Memorial Stadium have gone over the total.
Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is a top tier Heisman Troiphy candidate with a rating of 216.6 to go with 31 touchdown passes and just five interceptions with 12.34 yards per attempt. He is also the Sooners second leading rusher.
Free Live Betting ATS Pick
Oklahoma State may have enough offense and enhanced betting value to make a stand. Offsetting that is Oklahoma’s devastating effectiveness both as a home chalk and in this series.
