College football gambling handicappers were surprised at the way Oklahoma was dominated at Missouri in last week’s loss with the college football odds.
The #9 Oklahoma Sooners will host the Colorado Golden Buffaloes on Saturday night with an ESPN2 telecast and a kickoff set for 8:05 PM Eastern. Sports-Gambling opened with Oklahoma as a 25 point home favorite.
The Colorado Golden Buffaloes have a college football bet record of 3-4 straight up and 3-3-1 against the spread. Since beating Georgia the Buffs have lost 3 games in a row including last week 27-24 at home against Texas Tech.
Colorado ranks 100th in the country for scoring as Hawkins is yet to establish a credible offense in 5 years on the job while the defense ranks 75th in the country. The Buffs are 0-3 in Big 12 Conference action. Hawkins weak recruiting continues to show as the Buffs lack speedy playmakers on both sides of the line.
The Oklahoma Sooners have a college football betting record of 6-1 straight up and 3-4 against the spread and were knocked off the number one spot in the BCS standings after last week’s 36-27 loss at Missouri in which they were completely dominated in the 4th quarter of action.
Oklahoma ranks 18th overall in the nation for offense and 11th in passing as sophomore quarterback Landry Jones has 2094 yards passing and running back DeMarco Murray has 712 yards rushing and a whopping 14 touchdowns.
This is an unfortunate spot for Hawkins as he will be facing an angry Oklahoma team that will be looking to make a statement after last week’s loss. The seat is likely to be hotter in Boulder after this one. Bob Stoops is known for getting his Sooner team back on track after a bad performance.
Colorado has a college football gambling record of just 8-17against the spread in their last 25 road games while Oklahoma has covered 11 of their last 16 Big 12 Conference games and 7 out of their last 10 versus teams with a winning record.
These two teams have gone under the total in their last 6 consecutive meetings and Oklahoma has gotten the money 5 straight times at home against Colorado.
