Oklahoma Has Enjoyed Success Against West Virginia
Only three players on the Sooners managed to score more than six points and none scored more than Umoja Gibson’s 13 points in Oklahoma’s 65-51 loss as 4-point home underdogs to the Baylor Bears on Saturday.
The Sooners fell to 1-5 SU and 3-3 ATS over their last six games with the loss and have now lost four straight games. Oklahoma’s offense has managed to score only 56.3 points per game over that four-game stretch.
Bettors selecting Oklahoma as their Sooners vs Mountaineers prediction will likely be factoring in the Sooners’ recent dominance in this head-to-head series. Oklahoma is 4-0 SU and ATS in its last four games against the Mountaineers with outright upsets as an 8-point road underdog in 2020 and as a 4-point road underdog in 2021.
West Virginia Has Fared Well As A Favorite
West Virginia suffered its third straight loss in Saturday’s 78-65 setback to the Texas Tech Red Raiders as 8-point underdogs. Taz Sherman led the team in scoring with 21 points to bring his season average up to 18.9 points per game.
In their last four games as an underdog, all against ranked teams, the Mountaineers are 0-4 SU and ATS with an average margin of defeat of 15.8 points per game. In their 13 games as the betting favorite, the Mountaineers have gone 12-1 SU and 7-6 ATS.
The Mountaineers have allowed 78.5 points per game over their last four losses and 56 points per game in the team’s last eight wins. West Virginia must be better in the backcourt against Oklahoma’s struggling offense Wednesday night if it hopes to snap this current three-game losing streak.
Sooners vs Mountaineers Pick & Insights
Sooners: Keys To Cover
Even during their recent skid, the Sooners have been playing solid defense, allowing only 64.6 points per game over their last five games. To be a winning Sooners vs Mountaineers pick, Oklahoma just needs to pick things up a bit on offense while continuing to play well on defense.
Mountaineers: Keys To Cover
West Virginia is 12-1 SU as a favorite this season and 10-1 SU at home. The Mountaineers have struggled to compete against the nation’s top teams, but against a slumping Oklahoma, they should be able to cash in as a Sooners vs Mountaineers prediction with a similar effort to what we’ve seen from them this year against unranked foes.
