Oy - Vegas is really calling for points in the Oklahoma-West Virginia game this week.
Oklahoma boasts the No. 1 offense in college football with their Big 12 rival, West Virginia, ranking 10th, so expect plenty of scoring.
Now, after opening at 80 o/u, the point total is climbing and may not be done before kickoff.
Oklahoma-WVU total is up to 84 points after opening at 80. That makes it the second-highest total we've ever seen for a West Virginia game. Highest was 85 vs Baylor in 2012.— Jon Campbell (@JonnyOddsShark) November 21, 2018

Bad jokes aside, point totals this high have historically been reserved for the BIG 12. And with Kyler Murray battling Will Grier, it should be a shootout.
In 2015, the over-under for Texas Tech at Baylor hit 90.5. That was a match-up that featured a quarterback duel between Patrick Mahomes and Seth Russell. That game ended with a Baylor victory, 63-35.
How bad is Oklahoma's defense? West Virginia is next-to-last in the Big 12 in opponent red zone touchdown percentage at 64.71 percent.— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) November 20, 2018
Oklahoma is last at 86.49 percent.
Also, a bit of trivia, that game featured at least one throw from each Davis Webb and current Auburn quarterback, Jarrett Stidham.
Point being, the over is always more fun, especially out West. Keep a close eye on that OU-WVU line. History tells us that it's not done moving.
