LSU-Oregon was one of the two huge college football games to be played in the month of September. This is the other one. Oklahoma and Florida State meet in a battle of top-five teams.

Oklahoma Sooners @ Florida State Seminoles - Saturday, September 17

Sports betting line: Oklahoma -3

Why Oklahoma Will Win

The community of MLB baseball betting experts does have a few interesting races to follow. The American League West and the American League wild card have retained a measure of drama heading into the second half of September. However, on the evening of September 17, even those baseball gurus will probably want to set aside three and a half hours for this battle of college football powers. Oklahoma’s chances are bolstered by the way Florida State has played in the first two weeks of the season. Yes, Florida State cranked out 647 yards against Charleston Southern this past Saturday, but a lot of observers came away from that game with the sense that the Seminoles are not blocking as effectively as they should. FSU seems to be behind schedule in its evolution; the Noles were expected to be a breakout team in 2011, but defective line play is the surest way to get knocked down a peg or two. Oklahoma is a more proven team up front, and that’s what the Sooners have to lean on as they make a treacherous journey to Tallahassee, Florida. The Sooners need to be able to run the ball and keep down-and-distance situations manageable for quarterback Landry Jones. More importantly, OU must harass Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel, limiting the speedster’s running lanes on improvisational scrambles while mixing up looks to confuse Manuel as a passer. The Sooners own more brawn and beef. If they make this a physical game, they’re in very good position to win.

Why Florida State Will Win

When you mull over the direction of your sports bet in this game, it’s essential to realize that while Oklahoma wants a physical game, it might not get one. Jones is an immensely talented quarterback for the Sooners, but the problem with the third-year performer is that he locks onto receivers and does not survey the whole field. He often sees just half the field, and that’s how Florida State’s secondary can come up with multiple game-changing interceptions. Jones was absolutely brilliant at home last season, but he often wobbled on the road, especially in a decisive road loss for Oklahoma at Missouri. Jones will be staring down not just Florida State’s defense, but a roused nighttime crowd at Doak Campbell Stadium in the Florida panhandle. This is the very kind of intimidating environment Jones has not handled all that well in the past. If Florida State’s defense gets inside Jones’s head, Oklahoma is going to lose, and the Florida State renaissance – pointed to by many experts in the college football industry – will unfold in full relief before a national television audience.

Who Will Win

Plainly put, Landry Jones will throw three interceptions and falter in this moment-of-truth ballgame. Take Florida State to win outright.
