Betting on the Oklahoma Sooners (-38)
Record: 7-0 Overall / 4-0 Conference
Caleb Williams earned a win in his first start of the season, as he led the Sooners to a 52-31 home win over the TCU Horned Frogs last Saturday. Williams has taken over the starting gig under center for the Sooners which was previously on the lap of Spencer Rattler. After his sensational job in leading the Sooners to a 55-48 come-from-behind win over the Texas Longhorns on Oct. 9. Regardless of which quarterback starts this week for Oklahoma, it looks like the Sooners are going to have an easy time slicing through Kansas’ defense. The Jayhawks are allowing over 70 percent of their opponents’ passing attempts and had just allowed 244 rushing yards to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Oklahoma’s offense is poised to explode again in Week 8 of the 2021 college football season.
Oklahoma is 3-2 against the spread in its last five games as the road team.
Betting on the Kansas Jayhawks (+38)
Record: 1-5 Overall / 0-3 Conference
The Jayhawks have yet to find their way out of a lengthy losing slump. Kansas won its season opener against the South Dakota Coyotes at home, 17-14, then proceeded to lose all its succeeding games. After losing to Texas Tech last Saturday at home, 41-14, the Jayhawks are now 0-5 straight up in their last five games. Kansas is simply having lots of troubles on both ends of the field. It is averaging fewer than 16 points per game and is allowing nearly 50 points per contest. The Jayhawks are looking like sitting ducks for Oklahoma, but Kansas could have more success on the air this time around. The Sooners don’t exactly have an elite pass defense. In fact, Oklahoma entered Week 7 just 123rd in the nation with 303.0 passing yards per game. That sounds like an opportunity for Kansas quarterback Jason Bean.
The over is 7-3 in Kansas’ last 10 games overall.
Oklahoma wins, 47-13.
