March Madness betting odds on the Oklahoma Sooners should be very popular especially since the Sooners have arguably the best player in the country in Blake Griffin.
Gamblers will definitely be looking to make wagers on the Sooners at a March Madness sportsbook.
March Madness betting odds will have the Sooners as a #1 or #2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. If Blake Griffin had not missed time due to injury it is quite possible the Sooners would have been a #1 seed. Last season the Sooners were the #6 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Sooners were knocked out in the second round last year in March Madness betting. Much more is expected out of Oklahoma in March Madness betting in the 2009 NCAA Tournament. The Sooners have not been very successful against the March Madness betting pointspread in recent seasons, especially against lower seeds. The Sooners are 14-22 against the March Madness betting odds against lower seeded teams since 1985.
Oklahoma has struggled in the first round of March Madness betting going 6-13 against the spread since 1985. Gamblers have really not wanted to go with the Sooners at a March Madness sportsbook in recent seasons. The one area that the Sooners have done well in with March Madness betting is when they get out of the first couple rounds. In round three the Sooners are 5-2 against the March Madness betting pointspread in the last 24 years. Oklahoma is also 4-1 against the March Madness betting odds vs. the Pac-10 during that same time period. They are 0-2 though against the ACC in recent tournament action so gamblers might want to keep that in mind as they make wagers at a March Madness sportsbook.
There is no question that Oklahoma will receive a lot of attention on the 2009 March Madness betting odds board. Whether they can cover the big numbers in the early rounds is another story. The Big 12 has not been very strong this season and Oklahoma has not been tested on a regular basis. The other problem for Oklahoma is that head coach Jeff Capel has not proven himself as a big game coach. Taking the points against the Sooners might be the way to go when you make your wager at a March Madness sportsbook. Enjoy the 2009 NCAA Tournament and make your wagers for or against the Oklahoma Sooners.
