Oklahoma Sooners Betting Odds & Forecast
2020 Oklahoma Sooners Schedule
The Sooners are likely turning over the reigns of the offense to QB Spencer Rattler this year, and as Rattler sits among the Top 5-10 guys in terms of preseason Heisman hopefuls, expectations are just as lofty for him as they have been for the program the past few years.
Oklahoma definitely has the schedule to potentially reach nine victories, but the Sooners will look to avoid an upset at Iowa State on October 3, followed by the Red River Shootout the next week in Dallas against rival Texas. The annual Bedlam showdown takes place on November 21 at home against Oklahoma State, while OU closes the regular season in Norman against Baylor in a Big 12 championship rematch.

Oklahoma Odds to win Big 12 Championship
Three straight conference titles will undoubtedly have a program coming into the following year favored for a fourth, and that's exactly what we've got with the 2020 Oklahoma Sooners. At a -125 price tag to make it four in a row, oddsmakers don't believe there will be much standing in the Sooners way in the Big 12 outside of that game with Texas.
A berth in the conference championship will likely be had for the winner of that contest, but it's far from a guarantee. In fact, the money line price for Oklahoma in that Red River Rivalry game is hovering around the -140 mark, so for an extra 15 cents on the dollar it may be better to take them in the one-off result, rather then laying -125 for them to win the year in the Big 12. Definitely something to think about for those that are high on Oklahoma in 2020.
Oklahoma Odds to Make 2020-21 College Football Playoff
Yes (+125) or No (-155)
Three straight conference crowns have led to three straight playoff berths for this Sooners program, but after three straight losses in those first playoff games each year, you know it isn't just about getting there anymore for Oklahoma.
Last year's semi-final loss to eventual champ LSU was extremely ugly from the Sooners perspective, and even with a new QB under center in 2020, the motivation of what they would consider unfinished business should be quite strong within that locker room. And when you put the entire picture together of their future projected odds – 'over' 10 wins favored, favored to win the Big 12 – an 11-1 or better record would probably get Oklahoma back to the CFB Playoff.
If that's the perspective you land on more often then not with the Sooners, the “yes” option here is definitely one of the better futures on the board for Oklahoma in 2020.
Oklahoma Odds to Win 2020-21 College Football Playoff
Yet, as we've seen with the Sooners past NCAA football playoff performances, getting there, and winning it all are two vastly different things. Oklahoma has not really seemed able to take that necessary next step as defensively they struggle to matchup with the physicality of those other playoff teams from the SEC and elsewhere.
Having a +3000 ticket in your pocket would be nice should they be one of the final four left standing, but once there, it's hard not to side with more of a wait and see approach with the Sooners. For as good as they are at putting up points on opponents in the Big 12, things get harder against tougher defenses and the Sooners own defense has had trouble getting off the field when they need to in those past playoff performances.

Oklahoma Sooners – Postseason Forecast
Oklahoma should be a school that's in or around the playoff discussion all year long, and a lot will depend on the result of that Texas game, and whether or not they slip up elsewhere on their schedule. The rivalry game with Oklahoma State has provided many a scare of the Sooners in the past (it is at home in 2020), but another season with double digit wins should be in the cards in 2020.
Whether or not that has them as one of the last teams in the playoff or one of the first teams out remains to be seen.
Oklahoma Sooners Season Prediction
A 10-win season feels like it is where the Sooners will and right on the number, and there is a good chance they'll have two dates with Texas this year with the two schools meeting in the conference title game. Depending on their respective records and rankings at the time, that game could have huge implications for playoff potential for either side, although it is more likely that a Sooners loss there as a highly ranked squad would do more to push them out of the playoff conversation then anything.
Of all the college football futures to consider putting in your pocket now, Oklahoma at -2.5 vs Texas in their regular season meeting and Oklahoma on “yes” to make the playoff at +125 would be the only two worth serious consideration. Winning that game by a FG or more vs Texas would put them on the fast track to be playoff bound, and for the most part, those two wagers are rather correlated for those that are believers in the 2020 Sooners football team.
Sooners 2019 Betting Recap
The 2019 football season ended in the same fashion that the previous two seasons did with a loss in a college football playoff semi-final game. It was the first time in three seasons that the Sooners did not have the eventual Heisman Trophy winner under center, but the 63-28 blowout loss to LSU in the semi-final was another chapter in the long story of the Sooners football program struggling in the biggest of games.
Yet, too many can have a tendency to focus on the negative ending, when three straight CFB Playoff semi-final losses also means three consecutive Big 12 championships, all coming since the conference instituted a title game in 2017. The Sooners have gone 11-1 SU in all three of those regular seasons, and continue to reload on talent each and every year.
