Oklahoma Season Odds

The Oklahoma Sooners fell short of a national title last season, but with their Heisman Trophy-winning signal caller back for another year, OU is excited about the possibilities in 2009.

Bob Stoops and the Sooners finished 12-2 overall last year, losing to Florida 24-14 in the BCS National Championship Game. OU was worried that Heisman winner Sam Bradford would enter the NFL draft after last season, but were rest assured he would be back shortly after losing in the title game.

Along with Bradford, who threw for 4,720 yards last season, Oklahoma will also have running back Chris Brown and tight end Jermaine Gresham back offensively. Brown rushed for 1,220 yards last season and Gresham amassed 950 receiving yards in the Sooners’ dynamic offense.

Defensively, linebacker Travis Lewis returns, as well as defensive end Jeremy Beal and cornerback Dominique Franks. Lewis totaled 144 tackles last year and four interceptions, while Beal chipped in 8.5 sacks and Franks picked off four passes as well.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have opened Oklahoma’s odds at 6/1. Those odds represent some value because the Sooners are going to once again light up the scoreboard with Bradford at the helm. The biggest issue is with their offensive line as they have to replace Phil Loadholt, Duke Robinson Jon Cooper and Brandon Walker. But with their recruiting class, the Sooners should be fine.

Texas will once again be Oklahoma’s biggest challenge in the Big 12. If the Sooners can get past the Longhorns, they should have a clear path to the national title game due to the Big 12’s lack of overall talent.
