Sooners vs Green Wave Prediction: Spread

Blowout spreads are risky, but Oklahoma’s high-powered offense should be on display early and often against Tulane. The Sooners averaged 43 points per game last season, and return most of their starting offense minus star back Rhamondre Stevenson.

Tulane won’t lay down, but they will enter this matchup overmatched. Look for Spencer Rattler and Oklahoma to flex their muscles and cover the blowout spread here on the road.

Sooners vs Green Wave Prediction: MoneyLine

There shouldn’t be any surprises here. Oklahoma is in line for one of their last Big 12 championships and a College Football Playoff bid this season, and they will not have things spoiled here.

It feels like they’re on the cusp of breaking through and finally putting things together in January, and this should serve as the perfect tune-up.
There’s little to no value in the game line, so trust Lincoln Riley’s team to come out and start fast. Take the Sooners the first quarter moneyline and spread.

Sooners vs Green Wave Prediction: Total

Oklahoma likely won’t reach the daunting total of 69 by themselves, but they could get some help from the Green Wave. After three straight bowl appearances, Willie Fritz’ team won’t just lay down at home here.

The Tulane offense should be able to generate some offense against an Oklahoma team that carries the stigma of having a “Big 12 defense”. Points should be scored on both sides, a lot more for the visitors than the host. Trust both of these schools and take the over.

  • Free Prediction: Over 68.5
