Oklahoma has won back-to-back games, including a 38-30 victory over the Texas Tech Red Raiders as seven-point home favorites on Oct. 26, while going OVER the betting total for a second consecutive contest. The Sooners are 21-1 SU all-time against the Bears, including a 13-1 mark under head coach Bob Stoops, which can’t be ignored when making your college football predictions in Week 11. The program’s all-time .955 winning percentage in this particular series is its best against any current Big 12 Conference opponent. Oklahoma is 0-2 SUATS as an underdog the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER cashing in both of those opportunities.
The Sooners are 78-1 under Stoops when scoring 40 or more points, including an 8-0 mark against the Bears. Oklahoma is third in the Big 12 in rushing defense, while it has outscored opponents by a 129-64 margin in the first half. Quarterback Blake Bell has started six of the team’s eight games, completing just under 64 percent of his passes for 1,348 yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. Running back Brennan Clay leads the ground attack in picking up 538 yards on the ground.
Baylor is 7-0 for the first time since 1980, as it owns the nation’s top offense with an impressive 718.4 yards of total offense and 63.9 points per game. The Bears are 11-1 in the months of November and December since 2011, while they own a school-record 11-game winning streak. The team has trailed for just 4:33 over its last nine games, while outscoring opponents by a 295-44 margin in the first half during the 2013 campaign. Baylor is 6-0 SU and 4-2 ATS as a favorite of 10.5 to 21 points the last two-plus seasons, with no clear edge in terms of the betting total (3-3 Over/Under).
The Bears are looking to tie a Floyd Casey Stadium record of nine straight home wins, while they’ve compiled a 17-1 record at the venue since 2011. Baylor is 5-4 over the last two seasons against ranked opponents, but its only series win against Oklahoma came at home in 2011.
Sports bettors will likely back the Sooners due to the underdog being 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in the series.
