Why Florida Gators Vs. Oklahoma Sooners CBB Is A Pick ‘Em

  • The Florida Gators and Oklahoma Sooners both have -110 odds to win on Wednesday.
  • The total is set at 134.0 points with either side having a -110 betting line.

NORMAN, Okla. – Despite being the No. 14 team in the country, the Florida Gators are not favored to beat the unranked Oklahoma Sooners.

Does The Line Make Sense?

The line is immediately eye-catching as a top 15 team in the country should be favored over an unranked opponent, especially due to their success and the apparent regression from their opponent. Online sportsbooks are painting a different picture for the Florida Gators and Oklahoma Sooners matchup.

Florida vs Oklahoma Moneyline Odds

  • Florida Gators -110
  • Oklahoma Sooners -110

Florida is an undefeated 6-0 on the season and an impressive 5-1 ATS as well. However, this is the Gators’ first true road game of the season, which could potentially cause issues.

The line is reminiscent of yesterday’s Duke Blue Devils and Ohio State Buckeyes line where Duke was only favored by 2.5 points, showing that sportsbooks knew something the public did not. Based on that principle alone, many will bet on the Sooners just because the college basketball betting sites are hinting at it being the right move.

However, that may not be the best decision. Oklahoma simply lost too much talent from their team last season to compete with the experienced Florida lineup.

Austin Reaves went to the NBA, De’Vion Harmon transferred to Oregon and Brady Manek transferred to UNC. Those three combined to average 42 points per game and were the three leading scorers.

Betting The Total: 135.0 Points

Both teams have very similar scoring numbers as Florida scored 76.8 points per game compared to Oklahoma’s 75.9 points per game. The defenses are similar as well as the Sooners give up 59.3 points per game while the Gators allow 55.7 per game.

Either way, the UNDER is the better bet to make.

Florida vs Oklahoma Total Odds

  • OVER 135.0 -110
  • UNDER 135.0 -110

Florida’s average total is 132.5 points and Oklahoma’s is 135.2 points per game. Considering neither team allows 60 points per game, it’s fair to assume that this will be lower scoring than normal.

This is likely the toughest matchup for both teams to this point in the season, so expect some stretches of struggles in the game.

Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. EST and will air on MSG.
