NCAA betting odds value has also been a problem for the Oklahoma Sooners as they still are in contention for the Big 12 South title with the NCAA betting lines.
Oklahoma will host Texas Tech on Saturday with an ABC telecast that is set for a 3:30 PM ET starting time. Sports-Gambling opened with Oklahoma as a 16 point favorite.
Texas Tech has a college football betting record of 5-4 straight up and 3-5-1 against the spread with 5 of their games going over the total. The Red Raiders got a much needed 24-17 homecoming win and payout over Missouri last week to get within one game of bowl eligibility.
Texas Tech remains a great passing team that ranks 8th in the country for yards through the air while the defense has struggled and ranks 93rd for points allowed. Taylor Potts failed to start last week against Mizzou but came off the bench to spark a rally from a 17-3 deficit. He has passed for 2576 yards and has a 24/6 touchdown/interception ratio.
#16 Oklahoma has a college football gambling record of 7-2 straight up and 4-5 against the spread with 5 of their games going under the total. Oklahoma is coming off a 33-19 loss at Texas A&M, their 2nd defeat in 3 weeks. The Sooners rank 16th overall for offense and 6th in passing but the defense ranks an alarming 68th overall.
Quarterback Landry Jones has passed for 2837 yards with a 22/6 touchdown/interception ratio while Ryan Broyles has 1077 yards receiving and 8 touchdowns. DeMarco Murray has 832 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns.
The Sooners would figure to be a dangerous team to face this weekend. Two weeks ago they destroyed Colorado in a 43-10 home payout that followed their loss at Missouri in a near carbon copy of this setup. If Oklahoma wins out they will still make the Big 12 Championship Game so there is plenty on the line.
The Sooners have gotten the money 4 consecutive times when coming off a straight up loss while Tech is 2-6 against the spread after a straight up win. The host has beaten the NCAA betting odds 4 consecutive times in this head to head series.
