Nebraska-Oklahoma Betting Spread

After opening at Oklahoma -4 earlier in the week, the Nebraska-Oklahoma betting spread had been drifting up to -4.5 at nearly half the online sportsbooks.  The line move, or lack there of, would suggest relatively balanced action.  That is somewhat the case with the Sooners getting around 65 percent on the spread.  The money line backing was also leaning towards Oklahoma to win outright at a 65 percent clip.  The OVER/UNDER of 53 was getting event action heading into Saturday’s 8 pm EST game.

Both teams come into this game with identical records of 10-2.  Oklahoma is ranked number 9 in the nation while Nebraska is ranked lucky 13.

The Cornhuskers haven’t won a Bit 12 title in more than 10 years (1999 to be exact).  They’ll have a shot to make it happen Saturday night.  The Sooners hold the advantage in this series, having gone 44-38-3 all-time.  They are 6-1 all time in the conference title game. 

Those betting this game should note that Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez is questionable for this game after suffering an ankle injury.  Backup Cody Green is likely to see some playing time and could even start for the Nebraska-Oklahoma game. 

Some betting trends to consider for the Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Oklahoma Sooners game:

The Sooners have won 4 of the last 5 in this series, though Nebraska was victorious last season. 

The Cornhuskers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog. 

Nebraska is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a Straight Up win.

The Sooners are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game.

The Sooners are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.
