Sooners putting up big points
Oklahoma is coming off a 45-20 win at Kansas last weekend. The Sooners improved to 5-0 with the win and they are 2-0 in the Big 12. Oklahoma is 3-2 against the spread this year while going 2-2-1 with the over/under total.
The Sooners have the nation’s top offense in terms of yards, as they average 643.8 yards and 53.4 points per game. They rank fifth nationally in both passing and rushing. Jalen Hurts is having a Heisman-like season. He has thrown for 1,523 yards and 14 touchdowns while rushing for 499 yards and seven scores. Trey Sermon and Rhamondre Stevenson have combined for 664 rushing yards and nine scores while CeeDee Lamb is the leading receiver with 18 catches for 439 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Oklahoma is allowing just 19 points and 348.2 yards per game.
Longhorns on a win streak
Texas is coming off a 42-31 win at West Virginia last weekend for a third straight victory. The Longhorns are 4-1 on the season, 2-0 in the Big 12, 3-2 against the spread and 4-1 with the over.
The Longhorns have been great offensively this year, but have struggled on defense. Texas is giving up 26.6 points and 441.8 yards per game. Offensively, Texas is putting up 41.8 points and 485.2 yards per contest. Sam Ehlinger has thrown for 1,448 yards and 17 touchdowns to lead the offense while rushing for 236 yards and three touchdowns. Keaontay Ingram is the team’s leading rusher with 313 yards and three touchdowns while Devin Duvernay is the leading receiver with 45 catches for 463 yards and four scores.
College Football Betting Trends
The Sooners are 13-3-1 with the over in their last 17 games on grass and 17-6 with the over in their last 23 games in October.
The Longhorns are 44-18 with the under in their last 62 Big 12 games and 12-3 with the under in their last 15 games on grass.
These two have alternated the over/under over their last eight meetings and are coming off an under in last year’s Big 12 Championship Game. Oklahoma hasn’t found its defensive match thus far, scoring at least 48 points in every game this year. Texas’ defense certainly won’t be able to slow them down. The Longhorns have put up at last 38 points in every game this year and that includes putting up 38 on LSU, usually a pretty solid defense. I don’t think Oklahoma’s defensive numbers are really representative of what they are. They haven’t faced an offense of this caliber yet. I expect this to be a track meet and that the points will be flying fast and furious.
