West Virginia vs Oklahoma Final Betting Analysis

Oklahoma only cares about winning the football game. That’s why they failed to cover in a victory over Kansas and a win over the rival Texas Longhorns. We must put both games in perspective, though.

Oklahoma had trouble getting on track on the road versus the Jayhawks. When they did, they rolled. At one point in the second half, when Oklahoma was up 42-7, they had the game won against the spread. Unfortunately for Oklahoma backers, Lincoln Riley laid off Kansas. Why worry when your up so big in the second half?

Versus Texas, the line was 11 ½ while Oklahoma won by 10. Texas had gone something like 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings, though. West Virginia is a dreadful 0-4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The Sooners should easily cover the massive spread on Oct. 19 against West Virginia. The Mountaineers won’t keep up on the scoreboard while the Sooners will post points at will.
