Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Sooners are 34.5-point favorites to beat the Jayhawks. The total, meanwhile, sits at 70.5 points. As of this writing, 59% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Sooners.

Kansas Jayhawks

Kansas redshirt senior QB Peyton Bender completed 21-of-34 passes for 262 yards with two scores in a 21-17 loss to Kansas State on Saturday. Bender had a 65-yard touchdown pass to Stephen Sims, and he also connected with Jeremiah Booker for a nine-yard strike. It's a nice improvement over his struggles the previous week against Iowa State, but it ends up not being enough for Kansas to pull off the upset. Bender and the Jayhawks have their work cut out for them next Saturday against Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Sooners

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray completed 21-of-29 passes for 349 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 66 yards on 14 attempts in Saturday's 48-47 win over Oklahoma State. Just the one touchdown pass for Murray, but make no mistake, he played brilliantly for the most part. It was just that RBs Trey Sermon and Kennedy Brooks combined for five scores to keep him from a more prolific stat-line. The Heisman contender is up to 32 scoring passes for the campaign and has now accounted for 39 total scores. He will have contests against Kansas and West Virginia remaining on the schedule as he looks to make a final push for award-season glory. That game against West Virginia could be one of the best ones we see this year. Both teams are true Playoff contenders with light-the-world-on-fire offenses.

Betting Trends

Kansas

The Jayhawks are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games played in November and are just 15-36-1 against the number in their last 52 road games.

Oklahoma

The Sooners have covered the number in 14 of their last 20 home games but are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games following a win.

Prediction

The home team is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games between these two teams while the Jayhawks are 1-4 against the number in their last five games played in Norman. With West Virginia on deck and Oklahoma State in the rearview mirror, this is a perfect letdown spot for OU. That said, the Sooners are unstoppable offensively (literally, to some degree) and they cannot suffer a close call with the college football playoff committee watching. I’m laying the wood here.
