UL-Monroe vs. Oklahoma Pick
Oklahoma is coming off a 10-3 record in 2012 where it went 6-7 against the spread. Louisiana-Monroe went 8-5 last season and also was 8-5 against the spread. This is the first meeting between these two teams.
Line Movement: The opening odds for this game had Oklahoma favored by 23 points. The spread hit a peak of 23.5 points, but is now at its low of Oklahoma -21. The over/under total opened at 58.5 points, its lowest total. It has since made the climb up to 60.
Public Betting: Of the wagers that have been placed on this game, 62% are going on Oklahoma at home with a point spread of -21 against UL-Monroe. Be sure to click on the public betting link to get the latest odds and betting percentages.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take the over. According to latest college football trends, the Warhawks have hit the over in 6 of their last 7 non-conference games and in three of their last 4 games on grass. Oklahoma has also hit the over in 7 of their last 10 games. Oklahoma has never been a team short on offense. Even with a new quarterback, Oklahoma should be able to move the ball efficiently against this UL-Monroe defense that allowed nearly 420 yards per game last year. With the total at just 60 points, I think the Sooners can possibly threaten to hit that on their own.
