Why #5 Oklahoma is a good bet at -23.5?

Are the Sooners a safe bet for NCAA Football Week 5? Oklahoma’s 28-21 win over Army as a -28 favorite sent red flags flying above Norman businesses. The Sooners could only beat the Army Knights by 7 points (in overtime no less!) as a huge fave. But, Oklahoma could turn it around on Saturday. The Sooners are loaded while Baylor isn’t. Not only that, but Oklahoma is fantastic against the spread versus teams with a winning record.

Final NCAA Football Betting Analysis

Baylor hung tight with Oklahoma in last season’s game, only losing by 8 points, 41-49. The Bears could stay close in this game on Saturday, but it’s tough not to back Oklahoma. Even though the spread’s dropped significantly from the -26.5 opening, the Sooners are great at beating teams with a winning record ATS. Another reason to back the Sooners is because it’s just difficult to see a quality squad like Oklahoma playing badly two weeks in a row. Oklahoma gets the nod. NCAA Football Week 4 Pick: Oklahoma -23.5
