Army wins back-to-back
The Army Golden Knights are off to a 2-1 start to the season following back-to-back wins over Liberty and Hawaii. Their lone loss came at Duke, 34-14. Army is 1-1-1 against the spread and 2-1 with the under.
The Knights are allowing 23 points and 386.7 yards per game on defense this year. Their pass defense has struggled, allowing 275 yards per game. On offense, Army is averaging 26.7 points and 446.7 yards per game. Their rushing attack is one of the best in the country, averaging 306.7 yards per game. Quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr. has thrown for 420 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 206 yards and three scores. Four other players have over 100 rushing yards.
Oklahoma survives scare
Oklahoma is off to a 3-0 start following a 37-27 win at Iowa State last week. The Sooners are just 1-2 against the spread, but have hit the over in three straight games. Dating back to last season, Oklahoma has hit the over in four straight.
The Sooners are rolling on offense, averaging 49.7 points and 551.3 yards per game this year. The team has been led by new quarterback Kyler Murray, who has thrown for 863 yards and eight touchdowns while rushing for 169 yards and two scores. Receiver Marquise Brown has caught 19 passes for 412 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Oklahoma is giving up just 20.7 points and 384.7 yards per game.
College Football Betting Trends
Army is 5-1 with the under in its last six games in September and 9-3 with the under in its last 12 games on grass.
Oklahoma has hit the over in its last four non-conference games and in five straight games on grass.
Oklahoma has been putting up big numbers on offense behind Murray and I think the Sooners will continue to roll on offense against Army. The Knights have a chance to put up some points behind their running game, but the speed differential will make it tough to keep up with the Sooners. Still, Oklahoma should score enough to help these two hit the over.
College Football Prediction: Army/Oklahoma Over 62.5
