College Football Betting: Oklahoma Sooners vs. Florida Gators

College football betting January 8 features the one game that everyone wants to play against the college football odds.

College football betting will see few matchups with more appeal on the college football odds board than Oklahoma against Florida.  FedEx BCS national championship betting handicappers will evaluate the FedEx BCS national championship odds that are around Florida -3 with a total of around 72.

The Oklahoma Sooners were a college football betting cash cow as they had an overall mark of 12-1 straight up and 10-2 against the college football odds.  Oklahoma’s college football betting strength is their powerful offense which was ranked 3rd in the nation and averaged 53.3 points per game.

Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford had a quarterback rating of an insane 186.3 and a 48/6 TD/INT ratio.  Juaquin Iglesias was his favorite receiver with 69 catches, 1092 yards, and 10 TD’s.  The Sooners also are a strong college football betting team on the ground with a pair of 1000 yard rushers in Chris Brown and DeMarco Murray.

The Sooners’ college football betting “weakness” is their 63rd ranked defense that allowed 25 points per game.  The Florida Gators were also college football betting money in the bank as they had an overall record of 12-1 straight up and 10-2 against the college football odds.

Florida appears to have much better college football betting balance than Oklahoma as the Gators ranked 17th overall on offense and a strong 9th overall on defense.  That Gator defense, which allowed just 12 points per game, may be the decisive factor in this one.

Quarterback Tim Tebow, who finished second to Bradford for the Heisman, had a QB rating of 176.7 and a 28/2 TD/INT ratio.  Florida is more of an “old school” college football betting team that ran the ball 60% of their plays.  The Gators have plenty of college football betting assets including 5 players with over 400 yards rushing.

The Gators were a college football betting chalk in all of their games this season including their 31-20 SEC title win over then undefeated Alabama, as they covered the 10 point spread.
