OU Sooners 2021-22 Season
Out with Lon Kruger, in with Porter Mosier. After Loyola (IL)’s coach came to coach OU in the offseason, Sooner fans were fired up to see competitive basketball. The Sooners are eighth in the Big 12 as of March 9 with a 17-14 overall record.
While national success hasn’t exactly come into fruition so far, Mosier is still a promising head coach that is confident he can lead the Sooners to a NCAA Tournament run or a Big 12 tournament win.
Take a look at our college basketball odds to see how the Sooners fare in the coming weeks.
Betting on the OU Sooners
The Sooners have some tough matchups remaining in the season, so be sure to pay close attention to the odds. Here are some of the popular bet types that you can make on the Sooners if you live in a legal sports betting state.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
A moneyline bet requires a bettor to correctly pick the winner of the game. If you pick the winner of the game correctly, you will win the bet. How much you win will be determined by your wager amount and the associated moneyline for the team you bet on. Here's an example using a recent OU game against Oklahoma State.
- OU -170 moneyline
- OSU +140 moneyline
OU is the favored team to win this game, which is indicated by the minus sign (-) next to their moneyline. OSU is the underdog denoted by the plus sign (+) next to their moneyline. The moneyline number signifies the potential payout for each team. Someone betting on OU would have to bet $170 to win $100 whereas a bettor would win $140 with a wager of $100 on OSU.
OU Point Spread
Users can also place a point spread wager on the OU Sooners. This requires a bettor to correctly select the margin of victory by a particular team, rather than simply who wins. Here's the same OU vs. OSU matchup as an example.
- OU -3.5 (-110)
- OSU +3.5 (-110)
Oddsmakers set a margin of victory total known as the spread. In this game, OU has to win by four or more points to beat this spread and OSU either has to win the game outright or lose by three points or less to beat the spread. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on OU, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked. Someone betting on OSU would earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked.
Betting on over/under totals looks at the cumulative final score between two teams, not the winner or loser of the game. Bettors are required to accurately predict if the teams combine higher or lower than a number set by oddsmakers. Oddsmakers set the over/under total for OSU vs. OU at 130.5 points.
- Over 130.5 points (-110)
- Under 130.5 points (-110)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 130.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $110 to earn $100. Betting under 130.5 points would mean a bettor would earn $100 for every $110 risked.
OU Prop Bets
For those OU fans that have a particular favorite player, prop bets are a great way to show your support. Oddsmakers will also set lines on player statistics. Bettors then have the opportunity to guess whether those players will go over or under the set line to win money. Some popular prop bets include how many points a player will score, who will score first, how many rebounds a player gets, and many more.
OU Future Odds
If you like OU’s odds to make the Final Four or win the NCAA Tournament, take a look at futures odds . A futures bet is wager for an event happening in the later in the season. Because a futures bet can be really hard to predict, the payouts are much higher than a typical wager. The Sooners are currently +6000 to make the Final Four and +12500 to win the NCAA Tournament (odds via PointsBet Sportsbook) – check out our PointsBet Promo Code page and sign up with ACTION2K1 to claim $2,200 in risk-free bets.
How to Bet on OU
Sports betting is not currently legal in Oklahoma, and there does not seem to be much in the way of progress for it to be legalized in 2022. Oklahoma politicians have been largely opposed to sports betting in recent years, but sentiment within the state could be shifting. Most expect that any potential legislation could be voted on in the 2023 state general election at the earliest. Stay tuned for updates on The Action Network's regarding sports betting legislation in the state.
