SugarHouse opened Oklahoma as a 6.5-point favorite on Sunday night, several hours after the game was announced.

That number dropped quickly to Oklahoma -3.5 as of Monday morning. There’s some disagreement in the market, with BetMGM at -4.5 and Caesars at -3.

How Oklahoma Reached the Alamo Bowl

Oklahoma deserved its own reality TV show in 2021.

Starting quarterback and Heisman favorite Spencer Rattler was benched midway through the season. The Sooners dropped a game late in the year they were favored in to essentially dash their hopes of a College Football Playoff bid.

Oh, and head coach Lincoln Riley left for USC.

Once the dust settled, the Sooners turned in a 10-2 season, with losses to Baylor and Oklahoma State. Riley finished a strong tenure in Norman, leading the program to three straight 12-win seasons and CFP bids to start his tenure.

After coming up empty in the trio of Playoff appearances, the Sooners won the Cotton Bowl over Florida last year.

How Oregon Reached the Alamo Bowl

I can’t imagine Oregon will be sending a Christmas card to Utah later this month.

The Ducks lost just three games this season, two of which were to the Utes, including a 38-10 pummeling in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Still, Oregon’s 10-3 record can’t be ignored, though it’s reasonable to assume that college football bettors aren’t that thrilled with Mario Cristobal’s team either.

Despite a winning overall record this season, Oregon was just 5-6 against the spread (ATS), and its home/away splits are even more interesting.

The Ducks were actually profitable against the number on the road, going 3-2 ATS, but struggled at home with a 2-4 ATS record.

Oregon also failed to cover in the Pac-12 Championship Game, its lone neutral-field matchup.
