    Last 2+ years, MAC teams are 17-7-1 vs spread when facing a Big 14 team (2-2 this year). Purdue (+26) led Louisville 14-10 at half LW, but turned ball over four times (-1), were outgained 524-344 in 35-28 loss to the Cardinals Saturday. Last two years, Ohio U was 5-1 vs spread as a road underdog; since ’11, Bobcats are 20-11 vs spread in non-MAC games. Ohio has 13 returning starters; their OL has 69 returning starts. Favorites are 13-1 vs spread in Purdue’s last 14 home games; they’re 10-6 vs spread in last 16 games as a home favorite.

    Oklahoma State ran for 332 yards, threw for 308 in a 59-24 win over Tulsa LW, but Tulsa was 16-26 on 3rd down, ran 96 plays, so OSU’s defense needs some work. Since 2012, Cowboys are 3-8-2 vs spread as a road favorite. South Alabama was outgained 531-374 by Ole Miss LW in their 47-27 (+22) loss. Jaguars are 5-8 vs spread in last 13 games as a home underdog. USA has 11 starters back; its OL has only 39 returning starts. Sun Belt teams were 5-1 vs spread LW; since 2011, Sun Belt teams are 7-6 vs spread when facing Big X squads.

    OHIO at PURDUE...If Solich a dog note 8-2 mark in role past two seasons. Solich 2-0 vs. line against Big Ten since 2012. Purdue 4-10 vs. line at Ross-Ade in role since 2015 but that was all pre-Brohm, who was 11-6-1 vs. line as host at WKU.
    Slight to Purdue, based on Brohm marks.

    OKLAHOMA STATE at SOUTH ALABAMA...After just 5-9-1 as DD chalk the past three years, Gundy won first in role for 2017 vs. Tulsa. But Cowboys haven’t covered last 3 as non-Big 12 visitor. USA, however, on 6-15 spread skid since mid 2015, even as 2-1 as Mobile dog LY.
    Slight to Oklahoma State, based on USA negatives.

    MLB Betting Picks & Tips

    Tampa Bay at Boston (-130); Total: 8.5
    Chris Archer and Drew Pomeranz are the listed starters for tonight’s matchup at Fenway Park. Archer allowed two home runs to two batters and then exited the game with forearm discomfort in his last start. All tests came back negative and Archer was said to be feeling better, but color me skeptical. Archer’s workload is among the highest in baseball over the last few seasons and forearms ain’t nuthin’ to eff with.

    On the year, Archer has had a strong set of numbers with a 3.76 ERA, a 3.32 FIP, and a 3.30 xFIP. He has 225 strikeouts in 179.1 innings of work. He has allowed six home runs over his last four starts, which is a little bit concerning, but his home run rate has been elevated most of the year. Archer’s velo was down in that first inning and he looked pretty concerned when he left the mound. He says he’s fine and the training staff has given him the green light, so we’ll have to see what happens.

    My thought on this game is to take a position on Boston. You can probably get the chance to buy out live if you want or let it ride. Archer may not be able to work deep in the game if the same problems flare up. If he does, Drew Pomeranz is pretty good in his own right.

    Cincinnati at New York (-110); Total: 9
    How bad are things for the Mets right now? They won yesterday and Matt Harvey had a decent stat line, but they’re a virtual money line pick ‘em today against Amir Garrett. Garrett posted a 7.41/7.28/5.17 pitcher slash in his 58.1 innings of work before getting sent down to the minors, where he had a 5.72/4.03/3.94 pitcher slash. It hasn’t been a great season for Garrett in terms of stranding runners and that has been a problem throughout his MiLB career. He’s fairly new to pitching, so he lacks some of that pitchability to get out of situations. And he gets into a lot of situations because of his control.

    Seth Lugo was a fine spot starter for the Mets last season, but it has been a little bit of a different story this year. Lugo has a 5.00 ERA with a 4.12 FIP and a 4.43 xFIP. Lugo has decent peripherals across the board, except for a .329 BABIP against, which has created a lot of traffic on the bases. Mix in a 67.7 percent LOB% and that’s how you get a 5.00 ERA. There is some room for positive regression in those numbers for Lugo, though, so I prefer the Mets side today. With so many trades and injuries, the Mets aren’t a good team, but they have some players motivated to make some impressions for future playing time or new contracts. That’s enough to keep them invested. This line looks at least 15 cents off to me, so I think there’s good value on New York.

    Miami (-110) at Atlanta; Total: 9.5
    I’m not a cold, heartless prick. I promise. But, when I look at tonight’s game, there’s only one way I can go and that’s the Atlanta side. The Marlins, as I talked about yesterday, have much greater concerns than baseball. A hurricane is bearing down on their families and friends. As we know, a lot of Latin players make up the league’s rosters and those players have a lot of concerns as well since Caribbean islands were hit by Hurricane Irma.

    There’s just no way to back the Marlins as far as I’m concerned. They gave a game effort yesterday, but that hurricane is drawing closer by the day. Jose Urena is also a bad pitcher and has clear signs of significant statistical regression. I don’t love Mike Foltynewicz by any means, but he’s good enough compared to Urena to take the Braves today. If the Marlins were in a playoff chase, but they could keep their focus between the lines. They’re not.

    Milwaukee at Chicago (-125)
    No posted total for this night game at Wrigley Field, where Jimmy Nelson and John Lackey will square off. Nelson’s career year could not have come at a better time for the Brewers, who have a ton to play for this weekend. They’ll take the field five back of the Cubs and three back in the Wild Card. This isn’t a last stand series, per se, but losing this series would be troubling, at least for the Central. The Wild Card is still a possibility and the Dodgers could very well take the next three from the Rockies, but Milwaukee needs to find a way to bank some wins.

    Nelson has a 3.59 ERA with a 3.05 FIP and a 3.14 xFIP. His K% is up 9.8 percent this season and his walk rate is down 4.2 percent. There is still a fair amount of hard contact in his profile, but it is amazing what more strikeouts and less walks can do to a set of stats. Nelson gave up nine earned runs, 10 total, on 11 hits in 3.2 innings on August 11 and it sent his ERA up quite a bit, which is hard to do with a sample size like this. Since then, he has only allowed eight earned runs over his last four starts, so it was just one of those things. He’s the right guy to set the tone for the Brewers in this series.

    Still, I can’t help but think that this line looks a little bit light. John Lackey has struggled this season with a 4.74 ERA, a 5.31 FIP, and a 4.56 xFIP. He’s given up 32 home runs in just 148 innings of work. From July 5 to August 16, Lackey didn’t give up more than three runs in a start and shaved some points off of his ERA. He had a couple bad outings on August 22 and 27, but worked seven shutout against the Braves last time out. That was the first time he had completed seven innings since June 2. Over his last 10 starts, Lackey has a 3.90/4.36/4.53 pitcher slash. He’s been a bit better than his year-to-date numbers for the last two months.

    I want to believe in the Brewers and Nelson in this spot, but Lackey has been throwing the ball better and something about this game swings me in the home team’s direction.

    San Francisco at Chicago (-115); Total: 9
    How bad are the San Francisco Giants? They’re an underdog to a guy making his fourth MLB start of the season against a team that is 16-36 since the All-Star Break. Sure, with home field advantage factored in, the Giants would still be a favorite on a neutral, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit, but this has the feel of a game that nobody will want to touch and it may have value as a result.

    The question is whether or not Lucas Giolito can hold up his end of the bargain. I can’t imagine the Giants, who have been out of it since April, are too excited to go play an interleague series a long way from home. Giolito has allowed five runs on 12 hits in 20 innings of work with the White Sox. Home runs remain a problem at the MLB level, as he has now allowed 11 in 41.1 innings of work.

    The White Sox aren’t much offensively anymore with trades and other things, but Matt Moore isn’t much of a pitcher either. He has a 5.42 ERA with a 4.62 FIP and a 4.98 xFIP on the year. He hasn’t been an effective pitcher since 2013 and that was a Tommy John surgery and a trade to the NL ago. He’s allowed a ton of hard contact this season and rates very poorly in the Statcast metrics.

    The White Sox have to be a look tonight as far as I’m concerned. They have a rare chance to get some wins and that will help morale. It’s a long trip for a San Francisco team that doesn’t want to go play in Chicago. Signs point to the White Sox.

    Friday's MLB Best Bet

    L.A. Angels vs Seattle Mariners

    Odds:
    L.A. (+118) vs Seattle (-127); Total 9.5

    A huge series between AL West foes begins in Seattle tonight as both the Angels and Mariners are vying to make a final push for a AL Wild Card spot this year. L.A. has a much bigger edge in that regard at the moment as they enter Friday's action a game behind Minnesota for that final spot, while Seattle finds themselves four games back of the Twins after getting swept by the Astros earlier this week. After those poor results, this series means much more to the Mariners who are looking to get it started right with a home win this evening.

    Seattle sends out new pitching acquisition Mike Leake to the hill, and Leake pitched well in his debut for his new squad. That game was a 3-2 home win for Seattle over Oakland and Leake gave up both runs on eight hits over seven full innings of work. That stat line was a bit of a departure from the struggles Leake had during his last days with St Louis during July and August, as the Mariners had to be pleased with what they got from him in his debut. But shutting down a basement-dweller like Oakland is a much different task then pitching well against a rival you are competing with for a playoff spot, so it will be interesting to see Leake's work tonight.

    L.A. counters with Ricky Nolasco and he's been far from sharp on the whole since August began. Nolasco has never gone more than six full innings in that span (seven starts), and the Angels have been involved in some tight, high-scoring games during that time as well. With the Angels bats finally cooling off the other day in a 3-1 defeat to the aforementioned Oakland A's, L.A. fans better hope that result was an abnormality because the Angels bats had been smoking hot prior to that.

    For seven straight games prior to that 3-1 loss, L.A. had scored at least six runs in all of their games, and had 8+ runs in five of those games. The additions of Brandon Phillips and Justin Upton has lengthened their lineup significantly, and the excitement of playing meaningful September baseball for the first time in a few years has brought some of the joy back to the games of Trout, Pujols and company.

    There is little question in my mind that the one run they scored on Wednesday was nothing but an anomaly and I expect the Angels bats to light up the scoreboard tonight. Leake may have been decent in his first outing for Seattle, but 4 or more runs were scored against him in his last four starts with St Louis prior to the trade, and that's the Leake I think we get this evening.

    Yet, I wouldn't go and lay the farm on the Angels ML in that case as Nolasco's been far from good either. This will be his fifth start vs the Mariners this year and while the Angels are 3-1 SU in those games, his two prior starts in Seattle finished with 6-5 and 8-7 scores. A desperate Mariners team could easily end up on the right side of a scoreline like that and it's why I'm sending my money to the total.

    Getting 11 or more runs in two starts in this stadium is not good for Nolasco from his perspective, but it does look great to bettors who want the 'over.' Seattle is more than capable of mashing the ball around tonight, and with the way the Angels have been scoring of late, I don't know how you can not like the 'over' tonight.

    L.A. is on a 4-1-1 O/U run following a day off, is 4-0-2 O/U in Nolasco's last six starts against division rivals, and as a team the Angels are 6-1-1 O/U in their last eight against AL West foes. Meanwhile, Seattle is on a 8-1 O/U run when playing a foe that scored two runs or less in their last outing, and also have a strong 'over' trend going following a day off as they are 10-4 O/U in this spot the last 14 tries. With plus-money odds currently being offered on the high side of this number, that's where my money is going tonight.

    Best Bet: Over 9.5

    CFL Betting Notes

    Montreal Alouettes (3-7 SU, 4-6 ATS) vs. British Columbia Lions (5-5 SU, 4-5-1 ATS)

    Point-spread: BC -7
    Total: 49

    Game Overview
    Montreal has just one SU victory in its last six games and it has failed to cover in its last three. This once stout defense that held Edmonton to 19 points and Calgary to 23 points early in the year, has now allowed at least 32 points in each of its last three games. Drew Willy replaced Darian Durant in last week’s loss and he completed eight of his 11 passing attempts for 98 yards. It remains to be seen which quarterback will get the call against BC.

    The Lions return to action following last week’s bye in desperate need of a win after dropping their last three games SU with a 0-2-1 slide ATS. BC beat Montreal on the road 23-16 in early July to cover as three-point favorites with Jonathon Jennings at quarterback, but this offense has looked its best with Travis Lulay under center. The veteran signal caller has thrown for 1,693 yards and 10 touchdowns in his time on the field running the Lions’ offense.

    Betting Trends
    BC has won the last four meetings both SU and ATS including three games on the road. The total stayed UNDER 50 points in the first meeting this season and it has stayed UNDER in six of the last nine games in this inter-division matchup.

    Friday's Tip Sheet

    Oklahoma State at South Alabama
    As of early Thursday morning, most betting shops had Oklahoma State (1-0 straight up, 1-0 against the spread) installed as a 28-point favorite with a total of 67 for ‘over/under’ wagers. SBG Global and 5Dimes.eu were offering the Jaguars to win outright for a 30/1 payout (risk $100 to win $3,000).

    Oklahoma State raced out to a 21-0 first-quarter lead and coasted to a 59-24 win over Tulsa as a 19.5-point home ‘chalk’ in last Thursday’s season opener. The 83 combined points went ‘over’ the 71-point total. Mason Rudolph connected on 20-of-24 passes for 303 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. The senior signal caller also ran for a TD. Justice Hill rushed for a team-best 132 yards and one TD on 15 carries, while true freshman J.D. King had 95 rushing yards and one TD on just six attempts. La’Darren Brown, a redshirt freshman, ran for 92 yards and one TD on five totes. James Washington brought down six catches for 145 yards and two TDs, while senior WR Marcell Ateman finished with four receptions for 75 yards.

    Oklahoma State’s defense was led by senior safety Tre Flowers vs. Tulsa. Flowers was in on a team-high eight tackles with one pass broken up. Although the Pokies gave up 424 yards of total offense to Tulsa, they forced a pair of turnovers, got one fourth-down stop and allowed only 17 points since one of the Golden Hurricane’s TDs came via special teams. Senior LB Chad Whitener added seven tackles and one QB hurry, while junior LB Kenneth Edison-McGruder produced five tackles, one sack, one pass broken up and one fumble return for an 82-yard TD.

    Oklahoma State owns an 18-12-2 spread record in 32 games as a road favorite during Mike Gundy’s 13-year tenure. If the line holds at -28, it will be the richest road ‘chalk’ spot for the Cowboys on Gundy’s watch. They’ve been favored by 27.5 at Kansas (20-14 non-covering ‘W’) in 2011, by 27 at UTSA (56-35 non-covering ‘W’) in ’12 and, of course, the -26.5 spot at Iowa State in ’11 (a 37-31 loss) that kept them out of the BCS Championship Game.

    Keep in mind that Oklahoma State beat Tulsa on Thursday night, while South Alabama played Saturday in Oxford and didn’t get back to Mobile until late Saturday night, if not early Sunday morning.

    South Alabama (0-1 SU, 1-0 ATS) lost a 47-27 decision at Ole Miss this past Saturday, but it scored back-to-back TDs in the fourth quarter to post a backdoor cover for its backers (like me!) as a 22-point road underdog. The 74 combined points went ‘over’ the 59.5-point total when the Rebels scored early in the fourth quarter. Cole Garvin threw a 30-yard TD pass with 5:09 left in the second quarter to knot the score at 10-10. Ole Miss made a short field goal with 32 ticks remaining to give it a three-point advantage at intermission. The Rebels went on a 34-3 run to start the second half before the Jaguars answered with the final 14 points.

    Garvin, a junior who began his career at Marshall and started three games for USA as a redshirt sophomore in 2016, completed 19-of-31 passes for 204 yards and one TD without an interception in Oxford. He also ran for a pair of scores, including a 14-yard run to paydirt and a one-yard TD plunge to secure the backdoor cover. Garvin has a 5/1 TD-INT ratio for his career. Jamarius Way had two catches for 42 yards and one TD, while Sa’Mory Collier hauled in four receptions for 43 yards. Juco transfer RB Tra Minter rushed 12 times for 83 yards and had one catch for 12 yards. Xavier Johnson, a second-team All Sun-Belt selection last year, was limited to 33 rushing yards on 11 attempts.

    Joey Jones’s squad gave up a kickoff return for a TD to Ole Miss after cutting the deficit to 26-13 in the third quarter. However, other than that, USA played a clean game with zero turnovers and only three penalties. The Jaguars couldn’t close a pair of red-zone opportunities, setting for two 20-yard field goals from Gavin Patterson.

    South Alabama’s secondary took a big hit in August when junior CB Jalen Thompson was ruled academically ineligible for the season. Thompson had 31 tackles, four interceptions and six passes broken up last year. Now senior safety Neiko Robinson is ‘out’ on Friday due to a leg injury. Robinson recorded 64 tackles and one interception in ’16. The USA secondary still has senior safety Jeremy Reaves, a first-team All Sun-Belt pick last season. Reaves tallied eight tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss and one PBU at Ole Miss.

    South Alabama has compiled a 5-8 spread record in 13 games as a home underdog during Jones’s nine-year tenure. The Jaguars went 2-1 ATS in three such spots last season, beating then-unbeaten and 19th-ranked San Diego State by a 42-24 count as 19-point home ‘dogs.

    This is the first meeting between these schools.

    Ohio at Purdue
    As of early Thursday morning, most books had Purdue (0-1 SU, 1-0 ATS) listed as a 3.5-point favorite with a total of 57. The Bobcats were +150 on the money line (risk $100 to win $165).

    Purdue nearly started the Jeff Brohm Era with a major upset over his alma mater, but the sixth lead change of the game put Louisville in front with 9:01 left in the fourth quarter and the Cardinals held on for a 35-28 win. Nevertheless, the Boilermakers easily covered the number as 25.5-point underdogs at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The 63 combined points slipped ‘under’ the 66-point total.

    Purdue led U of L 14-10 at halftime thanks to David Blough’s eight-yard TD pass to Richie Worship with 51 seconds remaining in the second quarter. Blough threw his second TD of the game to Brycen Hopkins for two yards midway through the third quarter to put his team in front by a 21-13 count. But U of L’s Reggie Bonnafon would answer with a 10-yard TD run and then Blough was intercepted by Stacy Thomas, who turned it into a 61-yard pick-six to put Bobby Petrino’s bunch ahead, 25-21. The Boilermakers kept fighting, though, and went back in front 28-25 on Elijah Sindelar’s 14-yard scoring strike to Jackson Anthrop. U of L quickly responded with a 20-yard TD pass from Lamar Jackson to Dez Fitzpatrick with 9:01 left in the final stanza. The Cardinals would punch in a field goal and the defense did the reState

    Blough finished with 18 completions on 26 attempts, but he matched his two TD passes with a pair of interceptions. Sindelar connected on 15-of-31 throws for 118 yards and two TDs with one interception. Anthrop had a team-best seven receptions for 82 yards and two TDs.

    Purdue junior RB Markell Jones, who led the Boilermakers with a team-high 616 rushing yards and four TDs last season (4.0 YPC), remains out indefinitely with a knee injury. Sophomore DT Lorenzo Neal is suspended for the first half after being flagged for targeting vs. U of L. Neal had 11 tackles, one sack and two TFL’s in ’16. Senior safety C.J. Parker is out for the season with an ACL tear. Parker started five games last year, recording 35 tackles, three TFL’s and one interception. And finally, starting junior CB Tim Cason is listed as ‘questionable’ due to eligibility issues. Cason had 17 tackles and one PBU as a sophomore in ’16.

    Ohio opened the year with a 59-0 win over Hampton as a 36-point home ‘chalk.’ The 59 combined points sailed ‘over’ the 47-point total. The Bobcats enjoyed a 420-108 advantage in total offense. Sophomore QB Quinton Maxwell completed 7-of-9 passes for 100 yards and one TD with one interception. Nathan Rourke connected on 6-of-10 throws for 72 yards, but he made his biggest impact with his legs. Rourke rushed six times for 50 yards and three TDs. Junior RB A.J. Ouellette ran for 63 yards on 12 attempts, while Dorian Brown ran for 49 yards and one TD on 10 carries. True freshman RB Julian Ross ran for a pair of scores and 27 yards on 11 totes. Junior WR Papi White made three catches for 35 yards and one TD.

    Ohio will be without three starters due to injury at Purdue. Sophomore WR Elijah Ball, who had 16 catches for 212 yards and two TDs as a freshman in ’16, is out for the year with a knee injury. Senior starting right guard Durrell Wood remains out indefinitely with a back ailment. Wood has 26 career starts for the Bobcats to his credit. Also, sophomore CB Mayne Williams is out indefinitely with a neck injury. Williams started eight games last season, producing 22 tackles, one interception and one PBU. Finally, junior RB Maleek Irons is suspended for the entire ’17 campaign. Irons rushed for 439 yards and five TDs while averaging 4.6 YPC last season. Irons also had 14 catches for 96 yards.

    Ohio finished last season with an 8-6 SU record and a 7-7 ATS mark, dropping a 28-23 decision to Troy as a 4.5-point underdog at the Dollar General Bowl. The Bobcats brought back seven starters on offense and six on defense but as noted, three of those starters won’t be in uniform Friday night at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette.

    Ohio owns a 19-22-1 spread record in 42 games as a road underdog during Frank Solich’s 13-year tenure, but we’ll note that the Bobcats are 5-1 ATS in their last six such spots. They’re 3-0 ATS in their last three outings against Power Five foes, winning outright at Kansas last year and covering the spread in a 28-19 loss at Tennessee.

    Purdue is 3-0 ATS in its last three games as a home favorite over the last two seasons.

    Purdue has been victorious in 13 consecutive home openers, but eight of those opponents were FCS schools. The Boilermakers have won all seven head-to-head meetings with Ohio, but these schools haven’t met since 1988.

    B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets
    UCF will take on Memphis in Orlando on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. Eastern. As of early Thursday morning, most spots had the Knights listed as a three (with extra juice) or 3.5-point home favorite with a total of 69. Bettors could take the Tigers to win outright for a +140 return (risk $100 to win $140). UCF has won nine in a row over Memphis since losing the first meeting in this rivalry in 1990. Scott Frost’s team trounced FIU by a 61-17 count as a 17.5-point home ‘chalk’ in Week 1. The 78 combined points went ‘over’ the 56.5-point tally. Meanwhile, Memphis defeated ULM 37-29 in a game played while heavy rain and wind smothered the Liberty Bowl. The Tigers failed to cover the number as a 28-point home fave.

    Memphis is 7-2-1 ATS in its last 10 games as a road ‘dog.

    Alabama has limped to a 3-13 spread record in its last 16 games as a favorite of 35 points or more. The Crimson Tide is favored by 43-44 points for Saturday’s home game vs. Fresno State

    Due to Hurricane Irma, Florida and FSU have moved their games vs. Northern Colorado and ULM to noon Eastern, respectively.

    Miami’s game at Arkansas State has been postponed. Since these schools don't share an open date, this game won't be made up and season win total wagers on both teams will be 'no action.'

    Friday's NCAAF Game of the Day: Oklahoma State at South Alabama

    Oklahoma State Cowboys at South Alabama Jaguars (+28, 67)
    With a Heisman Trophy candidate at quarterback and a strong running game, No. 11 Oklahoma State tries to flaunt its newfound balanced attack when it visits South Alabama on Friday night. The Cowboys were 66th nationally in rushing last season at 170.8 yards per game, but gained nearly double that amount (332) in their season-opening 59-24 victory over Tulsa.

    Oklahoma State senior quarterback Mason Rudolph, who was 20-for-24 for 303 yards and three touchdowns against the Golden Hurricane after directing the country's No. 8 passing attack in 2016, watched his club pile up 332 yards rushing. Sophomore running back Justice Hill led the way with 132 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries as Cowboys coach Mike Gundy already sees a strong cohesiveness in his offensive unit. "I'm confident that we have good leadership and that there's enough, for lack of a better term, peer pressure to want to perform at a higher level,'' coach Mike Gundy told reporters. "These guys care about each other and we have some great team chemistry early in the season." The Jaguars, picked to finish fourth in the Sun Belt Conference, recorded a turnover-free performance and trailed by only three at halftime before succumbing to Ole Miss 47-27 in their opener.

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Cowboys opened as 26.5-point road chalk but that wasn’t large enough for bettors and OSU money pushed that line up to 28. The total hit the betting boards at 66 and has since risen to 67.

    INJURY REPORT:

    Oklahoma State
    No Injuries to Report.

    South Alabama
    LB Bull Barge (Probable, Knee), DL Tyree Turner (Probable, Ankle), OL Nelson Santiago (Doubtful, Leg), S Neiko Robinson (Out, Leg), WR Jalen Tolbert (Out For Season, Knee), CB Jalen Thompson (Out For Season, Academics).

    ABOUT OKLAHOMA STATE (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS, 1-0 O/U):
    The Cowboys will attack South Alabama with three running backs that gained at least 92 yards last week, including freshmen J.D. King (six carries, 95 yards, one touchdown) and La'Darren Brown (five, 92, one). “It’s been great,” Rudolph told reporters. “I kind of wanted to see the freshman guys come out and play, and J.D. answered the bell, as well as L.D. getting the first few snaps of his career." Senior wide receiver James Washington, who eclipsed 1,000 yards the last two seasons, should have little trouble getting there in 2017 after recording 145 yards and two touchdowns on six catches last week.

    ABOUT SOUTH ALABAMA (0-1 SU, 1-0 ATS, 1-0 O/U):
    The Jaguars need another strong performance from senior safety Jeremy Reaves, who became the fifth player in school history to record 200 career tackles after registering eight but was part of a defense that yielded more than 400 passing yards (429). Sophomore running back Tra Minter gained 83 yards on 12 carries in his South Alabama debut, spearheading a ground attack that totaled 170 yards. Junior quarterback Cole Garvin threw for one touchdown and rushed for two versus the Rebels.

    TRENDS:
    * Cowboys are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
    * Jaguars are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win.
    * Over is 6-0 in Cowboys last 6 vs. S-Belt.
    * Over is 13-3 in Cowboys last 16 games on fieldturf.
    * Over is 10-2 in Jaguars last 12 non-conference games.

    CONSENSUS:
    The Cowboys are picking up 79 percent of the action from users and the Over is picking up 77 percent of the totals wagers.
