Can Oklahoma shock No.3 Wichita State at Intrust Bank Arena?

The Oklahoma Sooners will take on the Wichita State Shockers in what’s expected to be a shoot-out in college basketball tonight. The Sooners are fresh off upsetting the USC Trojans in California and are ranked second in the nation in points per game with a 93.3 average. They’ll be in hostile territory in Wichita where the Shockers haven’t lost since last December vs Oklahoma State. Wichita State opened as 6.5-point favorite to hold serve at home.

SHARK BITES
  • Oklahoma is 3-11 SU in its last 14 games on the road.
  • Wichita State is 23-2 SU in its last 25 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in eight of Oklahoma’s last nine games.

The Sooners will be led by super-freshmen Trae Young, who has been unstoppable thus far early in the college basketball season. Young leads the country in scoring with at 28.8 points per game and is third in assists at 8.8 per game. He was instrumental in taking down the Trojans last Friday with 29 points and hitting four three-pointers. Where the Sooners may falter is they give up a ton of points allowing just over 80 points per game. Bettors will be interested to know that the Sooners haven’t been a great spread-bet this season as they’re 1-4 ATS in their last five games.

The Shockers continue to impress in the college basketball landscape despite playing in the American Athletic Conference. Wichita State is led by impressive sophomore point guard Landry Shamet who averages 16.3 points per game and has led the Shockers to wins over Oklahoma State, Baylor and Marquette this season. There only blemish so far is a tough road-loss to Notre Dame 67-66. If this game was a neutral court, this would be an easier choice to back Oklahoma but as it’s in Wichita, their rabid fan-base should certainly make it difficult for the Sooners to shoot their way to victory.
