Baylor is 15-6 ATS in their last 21 games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games. The over is 5-0 in Baylor’s last 5 games. Oklahoma is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 November games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The under is 6-2 in Oklahoma’s last 8 November games. The under is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.
This is a very interesting game between two Big 12 teams that have multiple losses already. Baylor has been the better defensive team this year, while Oklahoma went through a four game stretch where they allowed at least 41 points per game. Oklahoma playing at home is a huge advantage and I think their offense is going to roll. I expect a shootout in this game and I am taking the over.
