Oklahoma vs. WVU Pick
Most believe Saturday night's matchup between Oklahoma and West Virginia will be high-scoring but will the under cash for bettors?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Mountaineers are now 3.5-point home underdogs versus the Sooners after opening as a 4.5-point dog. The total, meanwhile, opened at 71.5 but has been bet down to 66.5 at the majority of online and Vegas sports books.
OKLAHOMA KEY TRENDS: The Sooners have covered in 10 of their last 14 conference games and are 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 road games when taking on an opponent that owns a winning home record. That said, they're just 1-4 at the betting window in their last five road games and have failed to cover in all four of their last four games following a win of more than 20 points.
WEST VIRGINIA KEY TRENDS: The Mountaineers are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games played in November but are just 4-11 against the spread in their last 15 games versus a team with a winning record. They're also 6-20 against the number in their last 26 home games versus a team with a winning road record.
OUR PREDICTION: With this being a Big 12 matchup the majority of bettors will blindly take the over and hope the points start racking up from kickoff through the final whistle. But the under has cashed in four of the Sooners' last five games and is 13-4 in the Mountaineers' last 17 home games. West Virginia has the best defense in the Big 12 and bad weather is expected to hit Morgantown by Saturday night. The area is looking at lows of 33 degrees and potential showers to make the conditions nasty for offenses. The total has already been bet down significantly from the opening number and could fall even further before kickoff so if you like the under, strike now.
