Oklahoma Sooners College Football Betting

There were numerous question marks about the Oklahoma Sooners as the 2022 season began. The loss of head coach Lincoln Riley and a host of key starters had Sooner Nation on edge. But Oklahoma broke out of the gate strong. New head coach Brent Venables may prove to be an upgrade over Riley. The reason is that Venables should eventually produce a better defense than Riley ever did. And as the saying goes, “defense wins championships.” This week the Sooners hit the road to face the TCU Horned Frogs. TCU has a new coach has well with Sonny Dykes. And Dykes is one of the best offensive minds in the game.

Oklahoma Sooners Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Oklahoma Sooners of the Big 12 Conference will face the TCU Horned Frogs of the Big 12 Conference. Kickoff time is at Noon ET, with television coverage on ABC.

The matchup of the Sooners and Horned Frogs will provide a stark contrast. The TCU offense against the stout Oklahoma defense will be intriguing. TCU will have a big crowd on hand. Although thousands of fans will be rocking Oklahoma Crimson. However, at the betting window, Oklahoma is the much bigger brand. TCU will get consideration from bargain hunters as a quality home dog.

But the question ultimately comes down to the price point on OU. Is there enough value, or is it an overlay? TCU has not played a strong nonconference schedule. And that adds to the uncertainty.

Last game, the TCU Horned Frogs won 42-34 against the SMU Mustangs as 2.5-point road favorites. The game went over the total of 72. TCU has a record of 3-0 straight up, 3-0 against the spread, and 2-1 over/under the total. TCU ranks 9th for total offense, 27th for passing, 21st for rushing, and 10th for scoring. Defensively they rank 67th overall, 107th against the pass, 28th against the rush, and 51st for points allowed. Also, TCU ranks 20th for fewest turnovers lost and 45th for takeaways.

Max Duggan completed 22 of 29 passes for 278 yards and three touchdowns. Emari Demercado ran for two fourth-quarter touchdowns in a TCU payout at SMU on Saturday as coach Sonny Dykes' Frogs won the Iron Skillet rivalry game against the program he coached the previous four seasons. Duggan threw 18 yards to Savion Williams in the first quarter, 8 yards to Jared Wiley in the second period, and 80 yards on a shuffle-pass jet sweep to Derius Davis to give the Frogs a 28-7 lead.

Dykes is the first Frogs football coach to win his first three games since Francis Schmidt did it in 1929. The team's previous 3-0 start was in 2017 when Dykes was a TCU offensive analyst under Gary Patterson, and the Frogs reached the Big 12 championship game.

Oklahoma Sooners Weekly Recap

Last game, the Oklahoma Sooners lost 41-34 against the Kansas State Wildcats as 13.5-point home favorites. The game went over the total of 52.5.

Quarterback Adrian Martinez ran for 148 yards and four touchdowns, and the Wildcats stunned No. 6 Oklahoma on Saturday night.

It was first-year Oklahoma coach Brent Venables' first loss as a head coach, and it came against his alma mater.
