The Nebraska Cornhuskers will be on the road to take on the Oklahoma Sooners Saturday at noon ET.
Oklahoma opened as 3 touchdown favorites and that number is now 22.5 at a lot of books. I have seen some get as high as 23.
The over under started off at 60.5, but that also got bumped up and is now at 62 in most spots.
The Cornhuskers improved to 2-1 on the year when they beat Buffalo 28-3 on Saturday. They will look to build off of that game when facing the sooners.
Adrian Martinez was solid on Saturday. He was 13/19 for 242 yards passing. He was also effective as a runner as he carried it 9 times for 112 yards.
Right now, it is pretty clear that the defense is the best part of this team. They have allowed a total of 40 points in 3 contests. For as good as that it is, they have not faced anybody who is on the level of Oklahoma. That defense better be ready because they will have their hands full trying to limit Spencer Rattler & co.
Nebraska was a favorite in their first 3 games, but that is clearly not the case in this game. Nobody seems to be giving them much of a chance in Norman.
Yes, they were playing Western Carolina, but things went just as planned on Saturday when the Sooners won 76-0 and also covered the massive spread.
Quarterback Spencer Rattler was very sharp last week. He was 20/26 with 5 touchdown. He will be in for a much bigger challenge when going against this tough and physical Nebraska defense.
After allowing 35 points to Tulane in week 1, the defense did a good job of responding in week 2. They will look to carry that over against the Cornhuskers. Impressively, they only allowed a total of 178 yards to Western Carolina.
The offense has been electric to start off 2021. In 2 games, the Sooners have scored a total of 116 points.
Even with the Nebraska defense being as good as it is, I still expect the offense for the Sooners to be free flowing and effective. Both the passing and running game were impressive in the week 2 victory.

4* Free Week 2 NCAA Betting Pick: Oklahoma SU
Both of these teams will be challenged in this game. Nebraska is going against the most explosive offense they will see this year and will have the tall task of slowing them down. On the other hand, Oklahoma will be facing one of the toughest defenses they will see. I do feel as the game goes on, the Sooners will get into a rhythm and get a victory. The spread of 22.5 is a little too high for me in this one. Give me the Sooners here.
