Oklahoma Cincinnati Betting – Sooners Figure To Meet Little Resistance Against Bumbling Bearcats

The Cincinnati Bearcats have won the last two Big East Conference championships, but they look like a different team this year. That’s bad news as Oklahoma comes to town.

Why To Bet On Oklahoma

The Sooners – who looked every bit as bad as Cincinnati in their first game of the season against Utah State – ironed out their problems in week two against Florida State. Quarterback Landry Jones is adjusting to being the full-time starting quarterback one year after unexpectedly relieving former Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford under center. Oklahoma has found its sea legs on offense, and a defense coached by coordinator Brent Venables is also gaining in confidence. As long as Oklahoma plays a steady, workmanlike brand of ball and doesn’t commit a larger number of turnovers and other mistakes, the Sooners should quite frankly cruise against a decidedly inferior opponent. This game had trouble written all over it when a lot of college football analysts pored over schedules in the recently-concluded offseason. Now, a date at Cincinnati doesn’t seem nearly as daunting to the Sooners.

Why To Bet On Cincinnati

When this game was originally scheduled, it looked like an attractive matchup as the back end of a home-and-home series between the two schools. Unfortunately, a lot has happened since the last time these two teams met in Norman, Oklahoma. Cincinnati – winner of both the 2008 and 2009 Big East crowns – lost head coach Brian Kelly and witnessed the departures of star players Tony Pike and Mardy Gilyard. However, if there is ever a time for Cincinnati to make a stand in 2010, this is it. The Bearcats will pour all their emotional resources and creative tactical plans into this one game. Playing at home, Cincinnati and first-year coach Butch Jones will throw the kitchen sink at Oklahoma and feed off whatever momentum they can get. Just a handful of big plays in the early going – one long touchdown pass and one interception off a Landry Jones pass – could potentially work wonders for the Bearcats’ confidence and propel them forward on a day when they’ll need all the help they can get.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Bearcats will be full of energy in the early going, and their adrenaline rush might very well enable them to pen in the Sooners and create a stalemate after the first 20 minutes of play. Midway through the second quarter, however, one should expect this game to change (if it doesn’t change even earlier in the proceedings). Oklahoma’s power, physicality, and depth should begin to wear out Cincinnati’s thin defensive front. The Bearcats just couldn’t keep up with North Carolina State on September 16th in a 30-19 loss that was more decisive than the final score indicated. Against the Sooners – who are far better than NC State – Cincinnati will just not have the manpower or the fresh bodies to hang with Oklahoma. The Sooners will pull away in the second quarter and coast throughout the second half.
