With the 2019 college football season nearing its close, teams are fighting left and right for the four coveted spots in the College Football Playoff.
Ranked teams have been dropping like flies, and they are leaving openings for one-loss teams to make their move.
There are two Big 12 teams that still have their playoff hopes alive, and they are squaring off against each other on Saturday night. The No. 10 Oklahoma Sooners will be traveling down south to take on the No. 13 Baylor Bears.
These two are both fighting for berths in the Big 12 Championship Game, and the winner of this will have a chance to make a run at the final four. Let’s break down the matchup and help you with your best bets.
Oklahoma at Baylor Game Overview
This matchup is sure to produce a whole lot of offense, as both of these teams are averaging over 35 points per game.
We know about Jalen Hurts, and how he started the year on a tear but has not been as effective as the year went on.
But Hurts always has one connection going for him, and that is with possibly the best receiver in the country: Ceedee Lamb.
Lamb catches everything thrown his way and looks unstoppable at times. Averaging over 100 yards per game this season, along with 13 total touchdowns, Lamb will be the No. 1 threat to the Baylor Bears’ defense.
On the other side of the ball, I love Baylor’s quarterback. Charlie Brewer is an incredibly gifted athlete with a cannon of an arm.
Brewer has thrown 16 touchdowns on the season but also has seven rushing touchdowns. He can attack the defense both rushing and passing, and Oklahoma will have a hard time trying to contain him in the pocket.
Baylor is coming off of a triple-overtime thriller to stay undefeated on the season. Even with the Bears’ resume, our friends at BetAnySports have Oklahoma favored in this contest at -10.
Oklahoma at Baylor Free Game Prediction
In Oklahoma’s lone loss of the season, it found itself getting punched in the gut by Kansas State, and it was hard for it to come back and respond to it.
I think in this game, we will see Baylor throw a haymaker with its home crowd behind it, and Oklahoma will have trouble responding. It will be a close finish, but take Baylor in this matchup at home to stay undefeated.
