The Oklahoma Sooners look to remain unbeaten on the road by winning their third straight game. Baker Mayfield is completing 67.5 percent of his passes for 2,087 yards, 21 touchdowns and four interceptions. Mayfield has seven touchdown passes in his last two games.

Defensively, Oklahoma is allowing 20 points and 338 yards per game. Dominique Alexander leads the Sooners with 58 tackles, Jordan Thomas has three interceptions and Eric Striker has five sacks. Daniel Brooks and Jordan Evans are questionable.
The Kansas Jayhawks are still looking for their first win of the year after losing 10 straight games. Ryan Willis is completing 55.6 percent of his passes for 779 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Willis has 81 pass attempts in his last two games.

The Sooners are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jayhawks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games on fieldturf and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The home team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
On paper, Oklahoma should crush Kansas. It's likely still going to happen. However, this is a ton of points to lay. Kansas has competed with Texas Tech at home and lost to Memphis by 32 points. We're getting nearly 40 points? Of course, betting on Kansas is always a little questionable. However, this is too many points for me.
