Why Bookies Should Fear the Oklahoma Sooners in 2017, 2018

The Oklahoma Sooners have the 5th shortest odds of winning the 2018 College Football Championship Game after Alabama, Ohio State, FSU and USC.  They are a team the bookies will need to be very scared of.

Last season the Sooners finished the year with just two losses but for the most part spared bookies with a 7-6 record Against The Spread.  This year the bookies and agents can ill afford to be complacent.

Paul Myerberg of USA Today writes:

That Lincoln Riley remains Oklahoma’s offensive coordinator means the offense shouldn’t miss a beat. Just consider the numbers: OU has averaged 43.5 and 43.9 points per game in Riley’s two seasons with the program, and last fall upped its per-play average from 6.8 yards in 2015 to 7.5 a year ago — a substantial increase on an already impressive total.

The Sooners are among the deepest teams coming into this new season though questions remain at the tackle position and in the back field.

Between Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon, the Sooners must replace a combined 2,334 yards rushing, 3,497 yards of total offense and 28 touchdowns, Myerberg observes.

The Sooners will play four tough road games.  Assuming they can win at least one of those, they should still be able to end the season above the posted total of 9.5.   Local Oklahoma bookies and agents may want to consider pricing higher than -145 or moving to the OVER/UNDER 10 or 10.5
