NCAA College Football Picks & Predictions: Oklahoma vs. Colorado Vegas Odds: Head coach Bob Stoops came under criticism for punting deep inside his own territory with just over two minutes to go during a 9-point college football picks loss last week, surrendering the loss, rather going for the first down and risk giving his opponent the ball in his territory with a chance to run-up the polls. Stoops admitted in thinking of the pollsters and time will tell if his decision paid dividends, starting this week as his #9 Oklahoma Sooners (6-1) host the unranked Colorado Buffalos (3-4) in week nine of the NCAA college football picks season. Vegas odds makers have installed the Sooners as -24(-105) point college football picks favorites at home.
Oklahoma not lost to the Missouri Tigers in a Big 12 showdown last week 36-27 but they also lost their number one ranking. The Sooners committed three turnovers and couldn’t get untracked in the running game against Mizzou. They also could not stop the Mizzou offense, that hummed for nearly 500 yards in total offense. Oklahoma will look to get going early against the outmanned Buffaloes behind quarterback Landry Jones, who has thrown for nearly 2,100 yards and 17 touchdowns. His main target has been Ryan Broyles with 69 catches while star running back DeMarco Murry has rushed for over 700 yards. The Sooner defense, meanwhile, has struggled somewhat this season but should have enough talent to overcome Colorado.
Colorado lost close games to Texas Tech and Baylor the past two weeks and seems to have gained some improvement after being whitewashed by Mizzou 26-0. The past two weeks, the Buffalos have scored 20+ points but the offense has not been explosive. Quarterback Tyler Hansen completes nearly 70% of his passes, but not for many yards and only 6 TDs. The running game is led by Rodney Stewart but there are precious few weapons.
Despite two tight bcollege football picks contests in the past two weeks, Colorado is primed for a big loss against the Sooners, who should be angry at last week’s and ready to prove a point. The Sooners cover the Vegas spread with ease in this week 9 college football picks4 match-up.
