NORMAN, OK (TheSpread) – Oklahoma had a strong finish to the 2013 season. Will the Sooners build off that and post double digit wins this year?

View 2015 National Championship Odds

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the over/under win total odds for Oklahoma has been set at 10.5 this season. The over has odds of -110, while the under has a money line of -120.

Oklahoma is coming off an 11-2 season where it went 7-2 in the Big 12. The Sooners finished the season on a four-game win streak, including a surprising 45-31 win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.

Bob Stoops is in his 16th season with Oklahoma and he returns a talented group that should be a Big 12 contender. Offensively, the Sooners have six starters back, led by sophomore quarterback Trevor Knight, who emerged late in the year and threw for 348 yards and four scores against Alabama. Oklahoma has four starters back on the offensive line to help Knight be comfortable under center, but the Sooners will be breaking in new talent at the skill positions.

Defensively, Oklahoma held opponents to 22.1 points and 350.2 yards per game in 2013. This year’s squad has nine starters back from that group, led by linebackers Eric Striker, Dominique Alexander and Frank Shannon. Shannon had a team-high 92 tackles while Striker had 6.5 sacks in 2013 and Alexander was the Defensive Freshman of the Year in the Big 12. On the line Charles Tapper is back after earning first team All-Big 12 honors in 2013 with 5.5 sacks. In the secondary, sophomore Zack Sanchez is coming off a 2013 campaign that saw him earn Freshman All-America honors.

Bet on College Football Futures Odds

Oklahoma has a relatively light non-conference schedule, as it hosts Louisiana Tech and Tennessee while playing at Tulsa. The Sooners should be 3-0 for conference play, which features road trips to West Virginia, TU, Iowa State and Texas Tech. The Sooners while host the likes of Kansas State, Baylor, Kansas and Oklahoma State while meeting Texas in the annual game in Dallas. With no conference championship game, Oklahoma can only lose once in the regular season to get to 11 wins. It would be hard to see them losing twice and getting a spot in the four-team playoff to get to 14 games. If you are taking the over, you could be counting on Oklahoma to win its bowl game, which is risky.
