If you’re considering whether to make a bet against the spread in this matchup, we suggest betting on the Eastern Washington Eagles team as +11.5 point underdogs. One obstacle that often hinders teams who are significant underdogs is being matched up against a team that can control the pace of the game. However, both Eastern Washington and Oklahoma State come into today’s game with possession rates that are near the NCAA average. Given that the style of play won’t be a problem for the Eagles and they have a 5-0 record against the spread in their last 5 games as underdogs, we think they will cover the spread at away.
