  • Although Oklahoma has gone 12-1 SU, they’ve gone 5-7 ATS and the over has gone 5-7 in their games. 

  • LSU has gone 13-0 SU, 7-4 ATS and the over has gone 8-4 in their contests. 

  • The Sooners ranks 5th in the FBS in scoring (43.2 points per game) and 50th in scoring defense (24.5 points per contest).

  • LSU ranks 3rd in the FBS in scoring (47.8 points per game) and 27th in scoring defense (21.2 points per contest). 

  • Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts incredibly ranks 6th in the FBS with 3,634 passing yards and 20th in the FBS in rushing yards (1,255) along with 32 passing touchdowns (T-10th) and 18 running touchdowns (7th). He will be relied on to have the best game in a Sooners uniform. 

  • Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow ranks 2nd in the FBS with 4,715 passing yards and leads the nation in passing touchdowns (48). As the overwhelming Heisman frontrunner, he will be expected to continue his utter dominance. Ja’Marr Chase (73 receptions, 1,498 receiving yards), Justin Jefferson (88 catches, 1,207 receiving yards) have combined for 32 of Burrow’s touchdowns and should wreak havoc on the Sooners defense. 

  • Per DraftKings, LSU has +120 odds and Oklahoma has +1200 odds to win the NCAA championship.

LSU

LSU is led by their Heisman frontrunner quarterback Joe Burrow. He ranks 2nd in the FBS with 4,715 passing yards and leads the nation in passing touchdowns (48). As the overwhelming frontrunner to win college football’s most prestigious individual award, he will be expected to continue his utter dominance in this matchup, especially after dismantling Georgia’s elite defense in his last outing. Ja’Marr Chase (73 receptions, 1,498 receiving yards), Justin Jefferson (88 catches, 1,207 receiving yards) have combined for 32 of Burrow’s touchdowns and should wreak havoc on a beatable Sooners secondary. Overall, LSU ranks 3rd in the FBS in scoring (47.8 points per game) and 27th in scoring defense (21.2 points per contest). The Tigers have gone 13-0 SU, 7-4 ATS and the over has gone 8-4 in their contests.

Oklahoma

Oklahoma has relied on their quarterback just as much as LSU has this season (if not more). Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts incredibly ranks 6th in the FBS with 3,634 passing yards and 20th in the FBS in rushing yards (1,255) along with 32 passing touchdowns (T-10th) and 18 running touchdowns (7th). He will be relied on to have the best game in a Sooners uniform and, based on his reputation as a big-game quarterback with a championship under his belt from his time with Alabama, he should not be written off in any capacity. The Sooners ranks 5th in the FBS in scoring (43.2 points per game) and 50th in scoring defense (24.5 points per contest). Although Oklahoma has gone 12-1 SU (with their lone loss coming in a shootout on the road against Kansas State), they’ve gone 5-7 ATS and the over has gone 5-7 in their games.
