Oklahoma State Cowboys College Football Betting
“Bedlam” has been nothing but a personal humiliation for Oklahoma State Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy. “The Mullet” is 2-14 in his 16 games as OSU head coach against the Oklahoma Sooners in the infamous “Bedlam” series. And it is that inability to beat the Sooners that has held Oklahoma State down from where they have always dreamed of being. It is difficult for prospective recruits to believe in Oklahoma State’s national championship prospects when they can’t come close to beating their in-state rival that is a perennial college football playoff contender. All told this has been the most difficult season of Gundy’s career as it began with the pandemic shutdown of spring football followed by problems with players and his athletic director in which Gundy was called “insensitive” to the current racial justice climate as well as to player’s feelings. He was forced to take a reduced contract and make a hostage video of apology for wrongs both real and in many cases imagined or contrived. The loss at Oklahoma was the final straw.

Oklahoma State Cowboys Weekly Recap
Last week the Oklahoma State Cowboys beat the Texas Tech Red Raiders in a 50-44 Big 12 shootout as the Red Raiders got the cash as 12-point road dogs with the game going over the total of 57. As a result, the Pokes are 6-2 straight up, 3-5 against the spread and 3-5 under the total.
Oklahoma State has national metrics of 54th for total offense, 83rd for passing, 41st for rushing, 65th for scoring, and 101st for turnovers. Defensively OSU ranks 46th overall, 39th against the pass, 66th against the rush, 33rd for points allowed, and 61st for takeaways.
All told Mike Gundy has been the most successful head coach in the history of the Oklahoma State program. As a former Cowboy quarterback and an alum, he is the perfect fit at Stillwater. While nobody is perfect, the fact remains that Gundy has accomplished what nobody else has at Stillwater. His twang and independent ways make him a media target, which is seen by many as a positive to commend him for.
Perhaps at least some of the blame for this year should go to media darling Chuba Hubbard, who was bequeathed with sainted status after his triggered tweet about Gundy wearing a One America News Network t-shirt on a fishing trip. OANN committed the horrible crime of practicing actual journalism and pointing out the radicalism of some organizations that Hubbard seems to think should not be held accountable. In his previous two seasons Hubbard has averaged over 6.0 yards per carry. This year he is down to 4.7 yards per rush. His explosiveness and nose for the end zone have been noticeably absent.
Just as problematic has been working in sophomore quarterback Spencer Sanders, who was injured early in the season before getting back into the starting role after several weeks on the sideline.
