The undefeated Oklahoma Sooners are set to face off against the 3-2 TCU Horned Frogs at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. The Sooners are in a great spot to make it seven in a row, but, can they cover the spread even though they have struggled to do so this season? 

Let’s break down and examine the betting odds from WynnBET and make out the best bet on this week 7 showdown. 

A change under center might have been just what the doctor ordered for the sputtering Oklahoma offense in the Red River Rivalry game. But, is it enough to start covering games at a higher rate? 

Let’s deep dive into the College Football odds for this game from WynnBET and pick a side.

TCU vs. Oklahoma College Prediction and Pick

The big story heading into this game has to be the struggles and subsequent benching on Oklahoma’s starting quarterback Spencer Rattler. After going 8-for-15 with 111 yards passing and two turnovers, coach Lincoln Riley decided he had enough and sent freshman Caleb Williams out to try and keep the Sooners' unbeaten season going. 

Turns out Riley was right to do so, as Williams led Oklahoma to a 55-48 win after trailing 35-17. Williams threw for 212 yards and pair of touchdowns. He also got it done on the ground, rushing for 88 yards and another score. 

Now, I’m no football coach, but it is hard to imagine Riley going back to Rattler after such a strong performance from the true freshman, despite coming into the season as a Heisman Trophy candidate. Turnovers have really been the issue or the junior, something Williams has yet to deal with. 

Oklahoma’s ground game put in a lot of work to claw the team back into the game, especially Kennedy Brooks, who scampered for 217 yards and a pair of TDs. 

On TCU’s side of things, the Horned Frogs have little chance to win this game in my opinion. But, can they manage to cover against a team that continues to win by not quite enough? Quarterback Max Duggan along with running backs Mendre Miller and Zach Evans are the primary weapons on this offense. The trio has had some success this season but, Oklahoma brings a much tougher defense to the table than TCU’s previous opponents. 

The Sooners have the 12th-best rushing defense in the nation and allow just 91 yards per game on the ground. 

The Sooners bad record of covering games does worry me, and if I knew that Rattler would be starting this game it would make me think twice. But, I think there is a slim chance that happens and I really like the energy the Sooners had after Williams stepped up. This could be the start of a huge second half for Oklahoma. 

Pick: Oklahoma Sooners -13.0 (-110)
