Sooners Aim to End ATS Slide in Date with Faltering Red Raiders

mayfield_sooners

The Oklahoma Sooners will try to pay out at the sportsbooks for the first time since Week 3 when they play host to Texas Tech in Saturday night’s Red Raiders vs Sooners matchup at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Oklahoma improved to 6-1 SU with last week’s 42-35 win at Kansas State as 14.5-point chalk while Texas Tech fell to 4-3 SU with a stunning 31-13 loss to Iowa State as a 6.5-point home favorite.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in Texas Tech’s last six games against Oklahoma.
  • Oklahoma is 13-2 SU in its last 15 games at home.
  • Texas Tech is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games on the road.

The Sooners have struggled to contain opposing offenses during their current ATS slide, surrendering 34.5 points per game over their past four after allowing just 12.3 ppg over their first three outings. That has contributed to the squad’s mixed results as double-digit chalk, recording a 6-8 ATS record since the start of the 2016 season. However, Oklahoma is a solid 6-1 ATS in its past seven dates on home turf.

The Red Raiders’ struggles against Big 12 rivals continued with last week’s loss to the Cyclones. Texas Tech is now 1-3 SU in conference matchups this season, and 3-9 SU in its past 12 overall. However, the Red Raiders have proven their resiliency with a solid 18-3 SU record in their past 21 following a SU loss as betting chalk.

Oklahoma has dominated in clashes with the Red Raiders in recent years, going 9-1 SU over the past 10. That run includes a 63-27 demolition of Texas Tech as 14-point home chalk in their most recent meeting two years ago which marks the seventh time in nine dates that the Sooners have claimed victory by a double-digit margin.
