OU Struggling To Pay Out for Bettors

Despite being one of the best teams in the nation, the Oklahoma Sooners have been a money pit for bettors as they have gone just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games. Those 10 games have seen the Sooners post an average scoring margin of +5.6 points per game, but have faced an average closing spread of -7.5. Oklahoma has a Big 12 battle on their hands Saturday when they visit the Baylor Bears.

Shark Bites
  • Five of Oklahoma’s six Big 12 games have been decided by five points or less.
  • The OVER is 4-2 in Baylor’s past six games..
  • Oklahoma is 6-2 ATS in their past eight games against Baylor.

Buddy Hield is having a phenomenal season, but he has somehow played even better against Big 12 opponents. The senior has averaged 28.2 points and 6.3 rebounds in seven conference games this season with the Sooners going 4-2 SU in that span.

Baylor is on a bit of a run as they have won five straight games while going 4-1 ATS for bettors. Ball movement is the key to success for Baylor as they are ranked second in the nation in assist rate, but  have registered an assist on less than half of their field goals in losses.
