Auburn vs. Oklahoma Betting Preview 01/02/16 – Sugar Bowl Odds & TV

Betting Preview

The one and only time these teams met was in the 1972 Sugar Bowl and the Sooners won that game 40-22. The Tigers will have a chance to even the score when they meet again in the 2017 Sugar Bowl.

The Tigers got off to a shaky start losing two of their first three games but then their offense with one of the best running games in the nation and their strong defense led them to six straight wins. Running backs Kamryn Pettway and Kerryon Johnson led a ground attack that averaged 278 yards a game which was sixth best in the nation.

The Tigers running game produced over 3300 yards and 32 touchdowns. They also had a solid defense that held 8 opponents below 20 points scoring and was ranked fifth allowing 15.6 points a game. Injuries really hurt them towards the end of the season when quarterback Sean White got hurt and missed two games and running back Kamryn Pettway was also injured missing two games around the same time. They finished the year losing 2 of their last 3 games.

The Sooners also started slow losing two of their first three and then finished with a flurry winning their last nine games in a row. They are led by quarterback Baker Mayfield who is ranked 10th in the country with over 3600 yards passing and 38 touchdowns while his 197.8 quarterback rating is the best in college football.They also have an excellent running game that amassed over 2800 yards and scored 27 touchdowns.

The Sooners offense averages over 550 total yards a game ranking them ninth while scoring 44.7 points a game which is third best in the country. They didn’t play good defense early in the season as they allowed three of their first five opponents to score at least 40 points resulting in a 2-3 record up to that point.

Their defense improved after that and they held six of their last seven opponents below 30 points while winning their last five games by double digits.

The oddsmakers have made the Sooners a 3 point favorite and set the total at 63.5. According to Consensus Analysis 69% of the public think Oklahoma’s offense won’t be stopped and are backing the Sooners while 67% believe scoring will be fast and furious and are behind the over.

The Tigers have covered the spread in seven of their last nine regular season games.

Game Analysis

This is a free play on WAS.

The Nats won Game 1 of this series in Colorado, and they have now won 10 of their last 13 overall. Colorado has lost 9 of their last 12, and injuries have really hit the Rockies hard.

Mitch Parker will toe the slab for Washington in Game 2, and he's 2-1 with a 2.73 ERA in his last five starts.

The Rockies hand the ball to Cal Quantrill, who is 2-3 with a 3.97 ERA in six home starts. He's backed up by the worst bullpen in the major leagues.

Injuries to Diaz, Blackmon and Bryant aren't going to help the Rockies.

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

- Perfect 5-0 Super Bowl Card (2018)

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
