Oklahoma (5-1, 4-1 ATS) has had recent success in this series, covering the spread in three straight games and winning four straight outright, but the Jayhawks are 6-4 ATS in their L/10 match-ups.
The football betting odds seemed stacked against the Jayhawks (5-1, 3-2 ATS) at halftime of their game last weekend against the Colorado Buffalos, when they led 9-7 and looked nothing like a team that was capable of covering the two touchdown spread. They did that and more in the 2nd half, outscoring the Buffs by two TDs and winning 30-14.
RB Jake Sharp was fantastic, as he rolled off 31 carries for 118 yards and three scores, including two TDs in a span of less than three minutes in the 4th quarter to send NCAA football betting fans with the Jayhawks on their ticket giggling all the way to the bank.
It wasn’t such a glorious day for those football betting aficionados who were backing the #1 team in the land, however. The Sooners were seven-point favorites on the NCAA betting line against their rivals, the Texas Longhorns on Saturday, and looked like the better team on the field for the majority of the game.
The Horns wouldn’t be denied though, as they outscored the Sooners 25-14 in the 2nd half and beat OU 45-35 in the highest scoring “Red River Rivalry” in the history of the series. The Sooners only dropped from #1 to #4 in this week’s AP Poll, but a loss to Kansas would stymie any BCS bowl hopes.
Oddsmakers have made the Sooners whopping 19.5-point favorites in this NCAA football betting match-up. In spite of the offensive outburst for Oklahoma last weekend, consider adding the ‘under’ to your football betting card this week.
The Sooners have gone 14-5-1 for ‘under’ bettors in their L/20 games, while Kansas has played six of its L/8 games ‘under’ the ‘total’.
