Gambling911.com has your Oklahoma Sooners bookie news for Thursday just days before their first season game.

Bookies and agents will need a solid Pay Per Head that has the ability to customize odds, provide sharp reports around the clock and offer LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING as a means of boosting profit.

Game 1 marks the debut of Lincoln Riley as head coach of the Sooners as they are set to take on the UTEP Miners.  This should be an easy win for Oklahoma, which comes into this game as a -43 favorite.

Despite the lopsided nature of this matchup, bettors and bookmakers alike will be able to keep a close eye on the OU replacement receivers in particular. 

With 2016 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year Dede Westbrook and do-everything running back Joe Mixon off to the NFL, the Sooners lost more than 2,000 receiving yards from a year ago. No single receiver on this season’s team looks ready to replace Westbrook’s 80 catches and 17 touchdowns on his own. The receiving corps does have a long line of talented wideouts who could still combine to cause all kinds of trouble for defensive backs.

Keep an eye out to see if quarterback Baker Mayfield pays particularly close attention to any receiver in particular.
