#3 Oklahoma versus Kansas Final Betting Prediction

With Miller under center, Oklahoma is a different team. Give Riley credit for pulling the preseason Heisman Trophy favorite and going with a freshman who took his senior year at high school off due to COVID.

Miller is already one of the top quarterbacks in college football. After a couple of games, one where he didn’t start, Miller is completing 67.8% of his passes. He’s thrown for 609 yards and 6 TDs with no picks.

What makes matters worse for Kansas is that the Jayhawks allow 43.3 points per game on average. Not only that, but KU is 0-6 against the spread this season.

Oklahoma is good for at least 62. Kansas will score 7 at the most. Sooners cover.
