Over on the Oklahoma side, they’re 14-8 this year. The Sooners are 2-3 in their last five games, beating Mississippi State and Oklahoma State while falling to Baylor, Kansas State and Texas Tech otherwise.

The Sooners are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Saturday games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games. Oklahoma is 6-13 ATS in their last 19 overall and the under is 8-2 in their last 10 overall.

Over the past six games, the Mountaineers have had a couple of slips versus Kansas State and Texas Tech, but otherwise they’ve taken care of business pretty well. The Mountaineers are still putting up some decent points totals with at least 74 in four of their last five outings.
As for Oklahoma, they’ve been a little tepid on offense here and there, with 63 or fewer points in four of their last five. I’m going to stick with West Virginia here.
