Road Team Has Been The Smart Bet Between Oklahoma, Kansas State

With the rankings in complete disarray, Oklahoma looks to reassert its claim to a playoff spot by winning out. First, the Sooners will need to get past a slumping Kansas State squad that has gone just 1-2 in conference play. OU might be worth a look for bettors even as big road favorites, with the traveling team going 7-1 ATS in the past eight between these two programs.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of Oklahoma’s last 9 games against Kansas State.
  • Oklahoma is 8-2 SU in its last 10 games against Kansas State.
  • In 2 games vs Kansas State, QB Baker Mayfield has thrown for 9 TDs and 1 INT.

Oklahoma had little issue toppling Kansas State 38-17 last season thanks to the performance of Baker Mayfield. The Sooners QB threw for 346 yards and four touchdowns against the Wildcats last year.

Despite holding a 20-point lead in the first half vs Texas last week, the Sooners allowed their rivals to climb back and take control of the game. Though Oklahoma ultimately won that game, that is two straight weeks that the Sooners came out of halftime with a double-digit lead only to watch it evaporate. Mayfield gets the headlines but freshman running back Trey Sermon’s emergence in the backfield might be the biggest positive development for OU this season.

Kansas State could not overcome several weather delays or a ranked TCU squad last week with the Wildcats managing just six points and 216 yards of offense. Sophomore backup Alex Delton got his first start under center vs TCU and clearly struggled to run Bill Snyder’s offense. With no passing threat, TCU honed in on Kansas State’s typically strong rushing attack and held it to 70 yards on 29 carries.
