Oklahoma vs West Virginia Odds: Line, Spread, Over/Under

Oklahoma looks to snap a four-game skid tonight as they travel to West Virginia tonight at 7:00 PM CST. WynnBET has the Sooners as 2-point underdogs and +105 on the moneyline (bet $10 to win $10.50) while the over-under is set at 130.

Will the Sooners get back to their winning ways or will the Mountaineers, in the midst of their own three-game losing streak, be the ones to get back in the W column?

Oklahoma vs West Virginia Prediction

Both of these teams are in a rut. Oklahoma has lost five of six and covered just once in their last four, while West Virginia has covered just once in their last six. The Big 12 is loaded this year and these teams are feeling the consequences.

To their credit, the Sooners’ metrics look the part of a contender. They have the 4th-best 2-point offense in the country and 12th-ranked effective field goal percentage overall to pair with a defense that ranks 21st in adjusted defensive efficiency. That’s a good team. So what’s going on?

Well, Oklahoma just hasn’t been able to protect the basketball. They turn the ball over on 22.2% of their possessions, good for the 338th-ranked offensive turnover rate. The Sooners rank just 277th in offensive free-throw rate as well, meaning they’re having trouble producing the kind of free, easy points that add up in close games.

Against a hounding West Virginia defense that boasts the 13th-best defensive turnover rate, forcing their opponents to turn the ball over on over 24% of their possessions, Oklahoma has to protect the ball if they’re going to come out with a road win.

With a 10-1 record at home and 12-1 record as a favorite, the Mountaineers have been winning the games they’re supposed to. Their defensive style adds to their home-court advantage as their crowd is given the chance to go wild and keep an opposing offense out of sync.

The Sooners haven’t fared well on the road in conference play, going 0-3 and managing more than 58 points only once. Oklahoma’s time is coming. They’re simply too good of a team to keep losing, but going on the road to Morgantown is too tall of a task in my opinion.

With Oklahoma having the 258th-fastest adjusted tempo and West Virginia the 174th and the excellent defensive play I expect to see, I like the under to hit for the fifth-consecutive Oklahoma game as well.

Give me West Virginia -2 and the under 130 in a game that should be loaded with turnovers and difficult shots.

Make your pick now on WynnBET.
