Oklahoma at Texas Tech: Odds, prediction, betting lines and picks

Prediction

Oklahoma 42, Texas Tech 21

Money line (ML)

Oklahoma (-589) is a huge favorite. While the Sooners have won eight-straight games over the Red Raiders, it's tough to trust this team given its young quarterback and poor defense. Expect Oklahoma to win, but PASS on the money line as the odds just aren't favorable enough to take the Sooners.

Against the spread (ATS)

OKLAHOMA ( -15.5) shouldn't have a problem scoring at will. It's just up to its defense to slow down Texas Tech's offense. Provided it gets a few stops, expect Oklahoma to win by 20 or more in this game as it's clearly the more talented team. Back OKLAHOMA ( -15.5).

Over/Under (O/U)

The total is set at an absurd 67.5 points, which feels a bit high despite Oklahoma averaging 40 points per game this season. Texas Tech's offense has been up and down as it was held to only 15 points against Iowa State a few weeks ago. Expect the Red Raiders to score into the 20s but for the UNDER 67.5 to ultimately hit at Jones AT&T Stadium.
