Central Michigan vs Oklahoma State: Chippewas Won the Last Matchup

  • Central Michigan won the last matchup on a last-second Hail Mary. The lifetime record is 1-1
  • Oklahoma State loses star running back Jaylen Warren (now in the NFL)
  • Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders enters his senior season

One of the first games to lead off Week 1 of the College Football season features two teams coming off impressive 2021 campaigns.

Headlined by quarterback Spencer Sanders, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will look to build off their 12-2 record. However, the Central Michigan Chippewas will hope for even more progress from their starter Daniel Richardson and expect to have Lew Nichols III continue to propel them forward and improve from their 9-4 record a year ago.

These two teams last met in 2016, with Central Michigan coming out on top.

Central Michigan vs Oklahoma State Odds - Daniel Richardson

Central Michigan vs Oklahoma State Preview

Coming off a 9-4 season in 2021, Central Michigan has found a dependable starting quarterback in Daniel Richardson, a redshirt sophomore.

Fortunately for Richardson, he’ll have an entire offensive line returning for one more go. However, the projected starting left tackle is up for grabs for Davis Heinzen and Bruno Guberinich, two redshirt freshmen.

Oklahoma State enters the year coming off a 12-2 record and has Spencer Sanders back under center in his fourth season.

Sanders is an OK passer, completing 62% of his passes last year. Still, he really hurts opposing defenses with his legs, carrying the ball 146 times last year and 386 times in his college career.

On the ground, Sanders accumulated nearly 700 yards and scored six times.

Looking at the front seven and secondary for both teams, nothing really stands out, but the receiver position on both teams is pretty evenly matched.

Expect lots of runs from Sanders and a running back committee for the Cowboys, as well as Lew Nichols III, arguably the best running back in the MAC Conference.

Central Michigan vs Oklahoma State Best Bet

Under 60 (-110) at Caesars

Regardless of which sportsbook you look at, the spread on this game is 20+ points, and that’s just too much for a game where there’s nothing all that inspiring outside of the running game.

Both quarterbacks are more or less average throwing the ball, and the receiving talent around them leaves a lot to be desired.

The lopsided spread has helped elevate this totals line, and that’s where we should lean.

Expect lots of runs to chew the clock and put this game under. If you’re looking to bet the spread instead, take Central Michigan and the points.
