The Oklahoma Sooners take on the Baylor Bears Saturday in week 14 Big 12 college football action at Memorial Stadium in Norman.

Defensively, Baylor is allowing 27.7 points and 367.7 yards per game. Terrel Bernard leads the Baylor Bears with 55 tackles, William Bradley-King has 3.5 sacks and JT Woods has three interceptions.
The Oklahoma Sooners look for another victory to build on their five-game winning streak. The Oklahoma Sooners have won three of their last four home games. Spencer Rattler is completing 68.1 percent of his passes for 2,319 yards, 22 touchdowns and six interceptions. Rattler has seven touchdown passes in his last three games.

The Bears are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games in December and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sooners are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Bears last 6 road games. The over is 5-2 in Sooners last 7 games overall. The Bears are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings in Oklahoma and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
The Baylor Bears are a hit or miss team that's been on the wrong side of some tough losses, and four of their five losses have been decided by 10 or less points. The Oklahoma Sooners have had an extra week to prepare for this game and they're firing on all cylinders offensively, which includes averaging 55 points in their last three games. Oklahoma should be the big favorite here and has the potential to blow the doors off in this contest, but we know Baylor can score and there's been some interesting matchups between these clubs recently. I'm torn in this spot, but I'd lean toward Baylor and the points, especially with us getting the hook on top of three touchdowns.
