College Football Betting Odds:
The Sooners charge into this Saturday’s contest sporting a 10-1 record. So far this season, the Sooners have posted a 7-1 record in conference play, which currently pegs them as the best team in the Big 12. However, West Virginia is hot on Oklahoma’s trail with a 6-2 conference record this season. With that in mind, we can fully expect the Mountaineers to aim for the Sooners’ throat this Saturday in order to have a shot at the No. 1 spot in the conference. Since Oklahoma is 6-1 in their last 7 games against West Virginia, they very well could pull it off.
Players to Watch: Kyler Murray (3,310 passing yards, 34 TD, 6 INT), Trey Sermon (851 rushing yards, 10 TD, 6.4 AVG), and Marquise Brown (1,021 receiving yards, 8 TD, 59 REC).
West Virginia Mountaineers
The Mountaineers leap into this weekend’s action flashing an 8-2 record. As aforementioned, West Virginia currently ranks 2nd in the conference behind the Sooners with a 6-2 Big 12 record on the year. Coming off a 45-41 loss to Oklahoma State, West Virginia could really use a rebound this upcoming weekend. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that there’s no guarantee they’ll get one. Right now the Sooners are scoring 49.5 per game and are giving up 30.7. For comparison, the Mountaineers are scoring 40.9 but are allotting 23.3 to their opponents. Both sides have an advantage over one another and it’ll be interesting to see how this conference rivalry pans out this weekend. The odds are sticking with the Sooners on the road but the favoritism is extremely small.
Players to Watch: Will Grier (3,325 passing yards, 33 TD, 8 INT), Kennedy McKoy (648 rushing yards, 6 TD, 5.8 AVG), and David Sills V (765 receiving yards, 13 TD, 53 REC).
