College Football Predictions Week 9
October 29, 2011 by staff
College Football Predictions Week 9, Oklahoma is coming off a disappointing 41-38 loss to the Texas Tech Red Raiders as a home favorite of 29 points, possibly playing the program out of the race to reach the BCS Championship Game. “Every team is going to face adversity and that is the good teams that have to do with the best,” said Sooners linebacker Travis Lewis. “So, hopefully we have strong guys that are going to deal with it the right way.” Oklahoma leads the series 70-14-4, but is only 3-4 when the teams come in national category. In the past two seasons, the team is 3-7 ATS as road favorite and the “low” is 7-3 in those contests.
The Sooners are averaging 545 yards per game, but have not been consistent throughout the year. Quarterback Landry Jones still has a completion rate of 60 percent or more in every game this season, throwing for over 350 yards in all but one. Its main objective is the high Ryan Broyles receiver, who set the NCAA career record for receptions against Kansas two weeks ago. The offensive line has been a force all season to protect Jones and the passing game, allowing only three sacks.
Kansas State is coming off a dominant 59-21 victory over Kansas in the Sunflower Showdown, creating a high-profile contest on Saturday. Wildcats coach Bill Snyder knows that the Sooners are going to be angry after the loss last week. “I know how they will respond,” said Snyder. “I’m sending jokes Bobby and his team on a regular newspaper and try to lighten the mood a little.” Kansas State is 6-1 ATS this season and the ‘more’ is 4-2 in those contests.
The Wildcats rank in the top 30 nationally in four defensive categories, including defense and scoring defense total. Saturday’s game will be the sixth in the series history that the Wildcats head into the game with a top national ranking of the Sooners with a lead of 4-1 in those games. After winning last week in Kansas, the program is one of the eight remaining undefeated teams in the country. Under Snyder, Kansas State has opened a total of 8-0 twice. Offensively, the team has made 38 trips inside the red zone, coming away with scores in 33 of those trips.
Bettors are likely to return to the Sooners because of their 19-7 mark ATS after a straight-up loss, while the Wildcats are 1-7 ATS at home against a team with a winning record.
