UCF at #6 Oklahoma Prediction, Odds and Trends in Week 8


Week 8 College Football Odds: UCF at #6 Oklahoma. It won’t be much longer until the Playoff Committee starts revealing their rankings, which are the only ones that really count in the end. MyBookie Sportsbook | 2023 College Football Betting | : Tuesday, October 17 to Saturday, October 21, 2023


Before we get to that point, though, the teams still in the playoff picture have some time to pick up more wins and impress the committee as they do so. There are many factors that go into the final rankings, some of which we aren’t really privy to, but all teams can do is play the next game up on their schedule and try to keep picking up wins. That is the goal for the Oklahoma Sooners this weekend, as they try to add yet another win to their increasingly impressive 2023 resume. It is the UCF Knights heading to Norman for a Big 12 matchup this weekend and doing so as a 19-point underdog. The O/U for this one is set at 66 1/2.

Why bet on the UCF Knights

After a pair of 9-win seasons under head coach Gus Malzahn, the Knight moved from the AAC into the Big 12 for the 2023 season and have immediately found that life is a whole lot tougher in the Power 5. The Knights started the season well enough, winning their opening 3 games of the season, but everything went off the rails once we got into conference play, where they are now 0-3 and on a 3-game losing skid. The Knights have surrendered 131 points in those 3 games and will now have to go up against a Sooners offense that is better than anything they have faced to this point in the season. Even before moving to this conference, the Knights had little success against the Big 12 and are now 1-7 SU in their last 8. They have gone just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games. The OVER has hit in 5 of their 6 games this season.

Why bet on the Oklahoma Sooners

There are still some big challenges to come for the Sooners this season, but they did pass their toughest test of the year to this point, beating Texas in the Red River Showdown before heading into the bye week. While they would probably liked to have played again last week and tried to build on the confidence taken from that win, a week off might actually have been better for them. They can now refocus and prepare for the final push that the Sooners hope will end in a playoff spot. This is a team that is tough to beat at home, with Oklahoma winning 18 of their last 20 games in their own building. They are also on a run that has seen them cover the spread in each of their last 7 games overall, with 12 of their last 16 games played in the month of October going OVER the point total.

College Football Expert Pick and Series Prediction

While the Knights have been giving up a ton of points in their conference games, the offense has also been doing their best to stay in touch. That leads me to believe that the OVER is the way to go here, but I also like the Sooners to win and cover.
