Remember, Oklahoma beat Texas A&M 77-0, and A&M beat Baylor 73-10 earlier this year.

The Vegas line is 52.5 points.

OU stopped at the mid mark of the 3rd against A & M ... I see them covering.

This could...and should...get ugly.  However, 52 and a half points may be a bit much.   Sounds like a good bet for entertainment puposes only.   ::)

It's a risky bet for one reason alone. OU took so much crap over beating another decent team 77-0 last week that thye might call off the dogs as early as the first half. The problem is-- even their walkons can probably beat the crap out of doggie doo Baylor.

When you see a line set at 52.5 points, there must be some kind of reason for it. I mean-- why not make it 60 points? The bookies know something and that might be underhanded. Since the BCS gives little credence to the whole margin of victory situation that the polls used to actually give rats testicles about, there  is little reason for OU to whip their ass worse than 42-0. No one will suddenly question whether or not they have leveled off.

The whole situation is quite comical. It couldn't happen to a better team.

There is no bad blood between Baylor and OU

A&M beat OU last year, so even if Stoops wasn't "making a statement", i'm sure he wasn't worried about embarrassing them with his backups.

With Baylor, the towel boy might get some PT at QB.

The line is merely an indication of what will get equal numbers of people to bet on both sides. Apparently, 52 was the optimum number. If it were 60, more people would bet on Baylor than Oklahoma, and the casino risks losing money if Baylor covers. With the same number of people betting on both teams, the house makes money regardless of who wins, via the 10% fee.
