Current Point Spread & Over/Under Total
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Sooners are 35-point home favorites versus the Green Wave after opening as a 34.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 58 before dropping to 54.5.
TULANE GREEN WAVE
The Green Wave have covered in four of their last five games overall and in eight of their last 11 road games. They're also 6-1 against the number in their last seven non-conference games and are 5-1-1 at the betting window in their last seven games in September.
The Sooners have covered in six of their last six home games and in six of their last six games overall after beating Ohio State outright last Saturday night as a road underdog. They're also 9-4 at the betting window in their last 13 games in the month of September.
OUR PREDICTION: It's a risk to take Tulane without knowing the status of quarterback Jonathan Banks, who was hit hard in the second quarter last week in the Navy game and is questionable today. That said, I don’t like this spot for Oklahoma. The Sooners are coming off the big win against Ohio State and now takes on a non-conference opponent while laying a huge number. There's no chance OU loses today, but one bad quarter by the Sooners and Tulane could cover easily.
