West Virginia Mountaineers vs Oklahoma Sooners Odds
Oklahoma opened as a 21.5-point favorite over a West Virginia team that struggled mightily against William & Mary in its opener.
The Mountaineers trailed William & Mary 17-7 at halftime, before rallying for a 24-17 victory over the Tribe of the FCS. First-year WVU starting quarterback Paul Millard had an uneven performance and now must face what appears to an improved Oklahoma defense.
The Sooners had far less trouble against Louisiana-Monroe. The OU defense pitched a shutout and new starting quarterback Trevor Knight overcame some early jitters to help the Sooners put up 34 points.
Traditionally a strong home team to bet, Oklahoma is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five home games.
The Sooners survived a 50-49 thriller last season in Morgantown, W.V.
