Oklahoma Has Been The Best Road Bet In College Football

The Oklahoma Sooners are consistently one of the best teams in the country and a big reason for that is their play on the road. Oklahoma has won its past 12 true road games while sporting an excellent 9-3 record against the spread in that span. Baker Mayfield and company pack their bags and head to Waco this weekend to take on the struggling Baylor Bears.

Shark Bites
  • Baker Mayfield accounted for 346 yards and 4 TDs the last time he faced Baylor.
  • Oklahoma is 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS in its last 11 games on the road against Baylor.
  • Baylor is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games against the Big 12.

Mayfield, the Heisman favorite, has been unstoppable this season. The senior quarterback is completing 76.8 percent of his passes and has found the end zone 10 times without throwing an interception. The big-play ability of OU’s offense has been giving opposing defensive coordinators fits, with the Sooners averaging 16.7 yards per catch.

Baylor is 0-3 for the first time since 1999 and it doesn’t look like it is going to get any better. There were plenty of good things to take out of last week’s loss against Duke, especially on the defensive side of the ball. However, Baylor needs to fix an offense that went 1-for-12 on third down and had four turnovers.
