Oklahoma State vs. Kansas State Line Moves Little In Wake Of Blackmon DUI Arrest

Justin Blackmon DWI

With news that Oklahoma State star wide receiver Justin Blackmon has been arrested for DUI early Tuesday morning, the reaction from oddsmakers has been nominal with the Oklahoma State vs. Kansas State line dropping just a half point. 

“Actually there has been little reaction,” observed Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com.  “Few if any of the oddsmakers took this one off the board or moved the line on Tuesday.”

SBG Global had moved the line down to Oklahoma State -5.5 already Monday evening, prior to news of any arrest.

The news started coming in around 4 pm EST.  Tulsa World was one of the first to report in:

The sophomore wide receiver, who does not turn 21 until January, and three friends were returning to Oklahoma after having attended the Dallas Cowboys’ game Monday night in Arlington.

As Blackmon drove a Chevy Silverado pickup north on I-35, a radar determined his speed as having been 92 mph in a 60 mph zone, according to police.

“There were field sobriety tests given on the side of the road,” said Dustin Bartram, the public information officer for the Carrollton Police Department. “The officer determined that there was a detectable amount (of alcohol) on (Blackmon).”

Should Blackmon not play on Saturday, Oklahoma State could be impacted negatively. The sophomore ranks No. 1 in the Football Bowl Subdivision in receiving yards per game at 158.9. He has 62 catches for 1,112 yards and 14 touchdowns.

NFL Betting Totals Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers

NFL Betting Totals Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers

In a season that was largely spent without QB Ben Roethlisberger, the Pittsburgh Steelers ended up missing the playoffs with an 8-8 record. However, they remained competitive to the very end thanks to a strong defense that returns most of its group this season. Now with Roethlisberger seemingly healthy, the Steelers aim to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2017.
