Oklahoma Has Been A God-Awful Bet

The Oklahoma Sooners are one of the most exciting teams to watch in college basketball, but that has basically made them optimal fade material. Oklahoma has failed to cover in seven consecutive games and are just 2-11 ATS in their past 13 games. The Sooners will have their hands full in their Sweet 16 matchup against the Texas A&M Aggies Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • Texas A&M is 6-2 ATS in their past eight games against Oklahoma.
  • Oklahoma is 9-2 SU in their past 11 games coming off three days rest.
  • Texas A&M is 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in their past eight games against teams with winning records.

OU can thank Buddy Hield for making it this far in the tournament as the senior has scored a combined 63 points during the NCAA Tournament, which accounts for nearly 40 percent of the team’s offense. The Sooners let VCU climb out of a 13-point half-time deficit in the Round of 32 before Hield scored 21 of the last 29 Sooner points to finish them off.

Texas A&M is coming off one of the most improbable comebacks in college basketball history, as the Aggies were down 12 points with less than 40 seconds left before forcing overtime and eventually winning in double-OT. If there is one player that can keep up with Buddy Buckets, it is Daniel House. The senior has averaged 24.7 points in the Aggies’ past three games.
