Andrew Sykora previews Oklahoma State v  South Alabama after an amazing first weekend of College football betting advice with 4 winners from 4 selections.

Oklahoma State travels to Mobile, AL for their first ever matchup with South Alabama on Friday night.  Oklahoma State comes in as a 28-point favorite in this matchup against the Jaguars of the Sun Belt Conference.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys entered the 2017 season with guns blazing as they won their first game 59-24 against Tulsa.  Quarterback Mason Rudolph was impressive with his performance that included two touchdown passes to preseason All-American wide receiver James Washington.  OSU showed why they are considered a national title contender as they accrued 640 yards of offense in week one.

South Alabama lost their week 1 contest to Mississippi 47-27 in a game that was well decided before the beginning of the fourth quarter.  Running back Tra Minter was a bright spot in the Jaguar offense as he gained 83 yards on just 12 carries.  South Alabama is hoping to pull a major upset this Friday as they did last season when they defeated #19 San Diego State 42-24.

Prediction and Betting Advice:

Oklahoma State has too much fire power for South Alabama to keep this game close.  I think that OSU will have no problem scoring 50+ points and will want to score as much as possible to help build their potential playoff resume.  However, they do not have an elite defense and could give up some points to South Alabama when the game is in hand late.  So, I like Oklahoma State to cover the 28 points.
