Sooners host Tigers in Week 4 action

Despite the offensive profiles of these two teams, the UNDER may be the play Saturday night when the Missouri Tigers visit the Oklahoma Sooners.

The total has gone UNDER in five of Oklahoma’s last six home games and four of Missouri’s last six road games.

The current total of 56.5 seems deceptively low for two high-profile offenses like these, as bookmakers may be trying to entice bettors into playing the OVER.
