Oklahoma Sooners Vs. UCLA Bruins NCAAF Betting Odds, preview and game picks

Seven years ago, Chip Kelly was one of the most celebrated coaches in all of college football. Kelly was in the beginning stages of his final season at Oregon. And the Ducks would post their third consecutive 12-win season. Kelly’s heroes were so devastating with the college football odds that the linemakers struggled to keep pace. Most important of all Chip was such a hot coaching prospect that he bolted for the NFL. Kelly has never been the same and is now scuffling at UCLA. Under,  the Bruins are making history. For all of the wrong reasons.

Oklahoma Sooners

In his first two seasons as head coach, Lincoln Riley put the Sooners in the playoff and had his quarterbacks accept Heisman Trophies. Now Jalen Hurts is off to such an impressive start under center that he is a top tier Heisman candidate. Hurts is about to blow up the stats machine starting with his 252.3 passer rating. Additionally, he leads OU in rushing. Oklahoma is 2-0 straight up, 1-1 with the odds and 1-0-1 over the total. Last year defense held the Sooners down at crunch time. If the stop unit can be merely average Oklahoma can roll.

Players to Watch: QB Jalen Hurts (83% COMP, 591 YDS, 14.4 AVG, 6 TD, 0 INT, 252.3 RTG, 24 RSH, 223 YDS, 9.3 AVG, 3 TD), RB Trey Sermon (20 ATT, 147 YDS, 7.3 YPC, 1 TD, 2 REC, 25 YDS, 12.5 YPC, 0 TD), WR CeeDee Lamb (8 REC, 190 YDS, 23.8 YPC, 2 TD), WR Charleston Rambo (6 REC, 135 YDS, 22.5 YPC, 2 TD), WR Jadon Haselwood (5 REC, 124 YDS, 24.8 YPC, 1 TD)

UCLA Bruins

By contrast, UCLA is off to one of the worst starts in school history. Opening night was a 24-14 loss at Cincinnati. The second-week play saw the Bruins lose to San Diego State 23-14 in front of a near-empty Rose Bowl home opener. For those keeping score at home Kelly’s team has lost two games to Group of Five teams to begin his second season on the job. And his once ferocious x-box offense has been rendered helpless.

Players to Watch: QB Dorian Thompson Robinson (53% COMP, 355 YDS, 5.8 AVG, 3 TD, 2 INT, 110 RTG), WR Demetric Felton (33 RSH, 99 YDS, 3.0 YPC, 0 TD, 9 REC, 127 YDS, 14.1 YPC, 1 TD), RB Joshua Kelley (15 ATT, 53 YDS, 3.5 YPC, 1 TD), WR Jaylen Erwin (6 REC, 66 YDS, 11 YPC, 0 TD)

Oklahoma Sooners vs. UCLA Bruins Betting Picks

In this situation, UCLA is completely outclassed and can’t rate a sports betting recommendation. Kelly is a mere shell of himself as a coach. While Jalen is looking to put a Hurts on the country in 2019.
