Oklahoma at Kansas Prediction 2/19/18
Neither one of these clubs has been lighting the scoreboard up with each team scoring 80 or higher points in one of their last five. What they also haven’t been doing is playing good defense allowing the opposition over the same period with the Sooners allowing teams a 47.1 FG% and the Jayhawks a 48.3 FG%. So, it wouldn’t be a reach to think that scoring could be sharply up in this match. These two combined for 165 in their previous meeting this season in Oklahoma and I forecast this game to go even higher.
