Oklahoma upends Texas
The Oklahoma Sooners are coming off a 34-27 win at Texas last weekend to stay unbeaten. The Sooners are 6-0 on the season, 3-0 in the Big 12, 3-3 against the spread and 3-2-1 with the under.
Oklahoma has the nation’s top offense in terms of yards. The Sooners are averaging 50.2 points and 621.7 yards per game this year. The defense is allowing just 20.3 points and 341.8 yards per outing. Jalen Hurts has thrown for 1,758 yards and 17 touchdowns while rushing for 630 yards and eight scores. Three other Sooners have over 300 rushing yards as well. CeeDee Lamb is the team’s leading receiver with 28 catches for 610 yards and 10 touchdowns.
West Virginia thrashed by ISU
West Virginia is coming off a 38-14 loss at home to Iowa State this past weekend for a second straight loss. The Mountaineers are now 3-3 on the season, 1-2 in the Big 12, 2-3-1 against the spread and 3-3 with the over/under total.
WVU has struggled on offense this year, averaging 24.2 points and 326.2 yards per game. Defensively, the Mountaineers are giving up 30.3 points and 383.8 yards per contest. The team has a big concern this week as QB Austin Kendall is dealing with a chest injury, but is expected to play today. Kendall has thrown for 1,247 yards and nine touchdowns this year. Sam James is the leading receiver with 37 catches and 359 yards and two touchdowns. Kennedy McKoy is the team’s leading rusher with 187 yards and three scores.
College Football Betting Trends
The Sooners are 7-1-1 with the over in their last nine home games and 13-4-1 with the over in their last 18 games on grass.
The Mountaineers are 7-1 with the over in their last eight conference games and 7-2 with the over in their last nine against a winning team.
These two have put up some high-scoring games in the past, hitting the over in five straight encounters. Last year the two put up over 100 points in Morgantown. Oklahoma is definitely going to score in this game. The Sooners have been moving the ball on everyone and the WVU defense isn’t going to put up a fight. The question is, will West Virginia be able to put up enough on Oklahoma? With Kendall likely to play, it gives WVU some added hope on offense. The Sooners have given up at least 14 in every game this year, so I think it’s a safe bet that the Mountaineers can do enough to contribute to the over hitting.
