Oklahoma Sooners vs. Auburn Tigers Prediction

Oklahoma is usually a team that bears a cup of wrath for any taker be that they are usually overvalued by their namesake alone. However, this narrative works to our advantage when you consider the early steam on the Tigers. Oklahoma has been playing football at a different level since they started off 1-2 with early losses against Ohio State and Houston. The Sooners’ offense is finally in sync and their defense has paved the way for them to win the Big 12 outright. Auburn has lost their last two SEC games which has dismissed their viability. Auburn has more or less beaten up on teams that have been weak all over the span of the regular season and any of consequence has been a problem to the Tigers in their campaign. Look for Oklahoma to capitalize here and provide value as a short-priced favorite.
