The Sooners are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Sunday games, 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 non-conference games and 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The over is 16-5 in Sooners last 21 non-conference games and the under is 5-1 in Terriers last 6 overall.
The Oklahoma Sooners haven't missed a beat up to this point, as the offense is just as explosive as it was a year ago, but the defense has been highly improved two games into the season. The Wofford Terriers were very kind to us last season in terms of covering numbers, but I question if they have enough horses to hang in this game on the road. Oklahoma is going to push the pace and shoot a high percentage, and Wofford could get buried if it isn't careful. I'll take the Sooners in a double-digit victory.
