Oklahoma owns the nation’s second-longest active victory streak at seven games, which is important to consider when making your Week 4 college football picks, as it comes off a 34-10 win over the Tennessee Volunteers as 21-point home favorites last Saturday.  The Sooners are 28-9 versus unranked Big 12 Conference opponents on the road under Bob Stoops—winning eight consecutive games in that situation.  Oklahoma is 7-3 SU and 2-8 ATS as favorites of 10.5 to 21 points the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 6-4 in those 10 opportunities.

The Sooners own a plus-101 scoring edge through three games, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines, especially since they’ve won 21 consecutive games when putting 30 or more points on the scoreboard.  Oklahoma leads the Big 12 with a plus-four turnover margin, which is far better than West Virginia’s minus-three mark in that all-important statistical category.  Keep an eye on the halftime score, as the program has won 45 consecutive games when holding a lead at the 30-minute mark.

West Virginia has won its last two games since a season-opening loss to Alabama, including a 40-37 victory over the Maryland Terrapins as three-point road underdogs last Saturday, as it won the statistical battle by 247 yards.  The Mountaineers have won two of three conference openers under head coach Dana Holgorsen, while they’ve produced 26 games with 400 or more yards of total offense during his time in Morgantown.  Senior quarterback Clint Trickett is coming off his best collegiate performance—throwing for 511 yards and four touchdowns last time out.  West Virginia is 2-4 SU and 4-2 ATS as underdogs of 10.5 to 21 points the last two-plus seasons.

The Mountaineers have a total of 36 players with at least one game of starting experience, while 19 others have seen their first bit of action in 2014.  West Virginia has scored in every quarter of every game this season, while it managed to run a school-record 108 plays against Maryland.

Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the OVER is 4-0 in the Mountaineers’ last four conference games.
