Why Bet On Oklahoma’s NCAAF Odds?

The Sooners will be in the College Football Playoff almost assuredly if they win out, including the Big 12 title game. They won the Big 12 game of the year last week, 38-20 over No. 6 TCU. The Frogs entered the contest with the country’s No. 1 defense against the rush. But OU’s Rodney Anderson had 290 all-purpose yards — 151 yards rushing on 23 carries (6.6-yard average) with two touchdowns, plus 139 receiving yards on five catches (27.8-yard average), both career highs, for two more scores. He became the only FBS player since at least 1996 to register at least 139 rushing and 139 receiving yards in a game.TCU entered the contest with the Big 12 Conference’s top scoring defense (13.9 ppg), rushing defense (69.7 ypg), passing defense (214.4 ypg) and total defense (284.1 ypg). The Sooners offense surpassed all those Horned Frogs defensive standards with 5:29 still remaining in the second quarter after Anderson’s 14-yard touchdown catch gave OU a 31-14 lead. Mayfield strengthened his Heisman Trophy résumé by passing for 333 yards and three scores and rushing for 50.OU has won 22 of its last 23 Big 12 games dating back to the 2015 season. Its only loss came at the hands of Iowa State on Oct. 7.

The Sooners have won their last 11 games in the month of November. The Sooners have gained at least 500 yards of total offense in each of the last eight games.

Why Bet On Kansas’ NCAAF Odds?

KU has a great basketball team but its football program is maybe the worst in the Power 5 outside of Rutgers. This past Saturday, Kansas fell to Texas in Austin, extending the Jayhawks’ road losing streak to 45 straight.  It’s the second-longest such streak at any level in NCAA history.KU is now 3-31 — and 1-24 in Big 12 play — in nearly three full seasons under David Beaty.  For perspective, Turner Gill won five games in his two seasons after replacing the ousted Mark Mangino in 2010, while Gill’s replacement, Charlie Weis, won six games in his three seasons before he was replaced by Beaty in 2015. Beaty might not be back in 2018. This is KU’s final home game of the season.Are the Jayhawks a safe bet in Week 12?Kansas junior wide receiver Steven Sims Jr., is approaching territory reached by only four players in Kansas history. With 1,940 career receiving yards, Sims needs just 60 yards to become the fifth player in Kansas history to reach 2,000 yards receiving. Dezmon Briscoe (2007-09, 3,240 yds.), Kerry Meier (2006-09, 2,309 yds.), Willie Vaughn (1985-88, 2,266 yds.) and Mark Simmons (2002-05, 2,161 yds.) are the four players to reach 2,000-career receiving yards in Kansas history.Of the 30 trips Kansas has been in the red zone in 2017, the Jayhawks have come away with points in 28 of them, which ranks 10th in FBS and first in the conference in red zone scoring percentage. The Jayhawks have scored eight rushing touchdowns, nine passing and have made 11 field goals. The Jayhawks ended last season ranked 65th in the nation in red zone offense and were 88th among FBS teams through the first 10 games.
