The Oklahoma Sooners (1-0) play the Kent State Golden Flashes on Saturday, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, money line odds, and over/under numbers, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet.
The game starts at 6 p.m. and can be seen on ESPN+ SoonerVision.
(Watch and stream Saturday’s game live on ESPN+)
The Oklahoma Sooners opened the Brent Venables era covering the 30.5-point spread against UTEP. Though it took an interception in the end zone to seal the cover, the Sooners were in control of that contest throughout.
While a lull in the second quarter allowed UTEP to make some hay and get on the scoreboard, Oklahoma rebounded to finish the half strongly and carried that momentum over into the third quarter. After a week to watch the tape, it’s unlikely it will have a similar stretch of uninspiring play in week two against Kent State.
Kent State is coming off a 45-20 loss to the Washington Huskies in a game where their defense allowed Michael Penix, Jr. to throw for 345 yards and four touchdowns. After a serviceable Week 1, Dillon Gabriel has a big week two performance in the box score.
T.D. Roof, LB: Out for the season (Elbow)
Daniel Parker, Jr., TE: Probable (illness)
Wanya Morris, T: Doubtful (Personal)
No Injuries Reported
While 34.5 points may seem like a daunting spread to cover for Brent Venables and the Oklahoma Sooners, the Sooners will be even better this week after a week to get the offense and defense tightened up after a strong Week 1 performance. Kent State will have its moments in this game, but ultimately the Sooners’ uptempo offensive attack and aggressive defense will be too much for the Flashes, leading to another big win and cover for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Take Oklahoma minus the points but go with the under as Oklahoma’s defense limits the Golden Flashes to 13 points.
