Oklahoma vs LSU kicks off at 4:00 PM EST on ESPN. Let’s break down this CFB playoff semi-final that is sure to stir up some serious online betting action nation wide.
Online Betting Preview: #4 Oklahoma vs #1 LSU
The Peach Bowl @ Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta Georgia
Spread: Oklahoma +13.5.
The knee jerk reaction is to just bet LSU and that’s why the line has been inflated from the opening number of -11. Oklahoma is going to have to rely on Jalen Hurts to carry the load for them against LSU’s mercurial defense. LSU has had some decent games, but they gave up 614 total yards to Ole Miss and 41 points to Alabama without Tua Tagovailoa. Even with games like that, LSU has given up 342 YPG.
Expecting Hurts to put up a big game is not entirely unrealistic, but on the other side of the ball Oklahoma is really bad on defense. They will also be without defensive end Ronnie Perkins and safety Delarrin Turner-Yell. The Sooners are going to have to try and replicate what Auburn did to try and at least make LSU less dominant on offense. What are they going to do, run a dime defense all game and let Joe Burrow pick them apart?
Oklahoma can score, but they are generally scoring against bad Big 12 teams that have also countered Oklahoma over and over again. Even with an inflated number approaching two touchdowns there’s not a chance I am going to bet against LSU after they laid the wood to Georgia. If Georgia’s defense can’t slow down LSU then what do you think Oklahoma can do?
THE PICK: LSU -13.5
