Oklahoma Baylor Betting: Oklahoma Tries To Stay In Big 12 And National Title Hunts

The Oklahoma Sooners are still playing for every possible college football prize this season. As long as OU can win in November, it will set up a showdown with Oklahoma State on Dec. 3.

Oklahoma Sooners @ Baylor Bears - Saturday, November 19

Sports betting line: Oklahoma -15.5

Why Oklahoma Will Win

The college football betting  experts who are looking at this game are mindful of the fact that last year, a wobbly Oklahoma team – an Oklahoma team that wasn’t fully trusted – went into Baylor with a lot of questions hanging over its head… and crushed Baylor from start to finish. The 2010 Sooners had looked very frail in losses on the road against Missouri and Texas A&M. Oklahoma had been outmuscled and outmaneuvered in those two contests, and quarterback Landry Jones suffered because of his penchant for not looking off the safety, focusing on one receiver and ignoring the other half of the field. However, against Baylor, none of that mattered for the Sooners, who righted their ship and began the rally that catapulted them to the Big 12 championship. OU destroyed Baylor, 53-24, tearing apart a paper-thin Bear defense. The Sooners pretty much did whatever they wanted, and the memory of that game will loom large this weekend in Waco, Texas, which was the site of last year’s contest as well. Oklahoma is a better, more complete team than it was last season. The Sooners are even more stout on the offensive line and play with more authoritativeness on a weekly basis. Baylor trailed lowly Kansas by three touchdowns last week before rallying for a one-point win. The Bears’ defense simply has no answer – and precious little hope – against the formidable offenses of the Big 12. Oklahoma is going to have a field day in this game on the offensive side of the ball. It would be a huge surprise if the Sooners score fewer than 42 points.

Why Baylor Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you need to be cognizant of a few things. First, the betting line is 15.5 points (although subject to change in the hours before kickoff). This means that Baylor can lose by two touchdowns and still cover the spread. It’s true that Baylor won’t defend the Sooners all that well, but the Bears can definitely win this game outright in a shootout. Do recall that Oklahoma lost to Texas Tech, 41-38, earlier this year. The Sooners’ secondary was fully eviscerated by the Red Raiders’ passing game. The back line of defense is clearly OU’s biggest defensive weakness, and since the Sooners are playing without their top receiver, Ryan Broyles (lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament), Baylor has the offensive weapons – with quarterback Robert Griffin III and receiver Kendall Wright – to win a 56-49 firefight.

Who Will Win

It’s not going to be close. Baylor might very well score 35 points, but Oklahoma will probably score 56. The Bears have no defense; the Sooners will make at least a few plays.
