Harvey’s 2009 Florida/Oklahoma Picks

Bob Harvey taking the UNDER in the BCS title game to finish off his bowl picks season on a winning note and here is why:

It’s not surprising the total is reaching skyward at 72 for this game. Oklahoma boasts the No. 1 scoring offense in the nation with 54 points per game while Florida ranks No. 3 with 45.2. The Sooners became the only team in college football history to score more than 60 points in five straight games.

We could get into all kinds of offensive stats, but the biggest difference to note between the two teams on offense is passing yards. Oklahoma ranks third in the country compared to Florida’s 63rd ranking.

The good news for Gators bettors is their team has a far superior pass defense (174 yards against per game versus 253 yards against per game). Florida’s scoring defense also ranks much higher at fifth (12.8 points against per game) compared to the Sooners’ at 57 (24.5).

If you struggled to beat the bowl game odds this year and dug yourself a bit of a whole, then make sure you get yourself out of it by taking a look at what Bob offers in basketball and the NFL.  He is a no non-sense handicapper that spends his days breaking down games and his nights watching his work.  He can and will help you if you let him.
