With the regular season over, March Madness is right around the corner. It’s one of the best events in all of sports, and a godsend for bettors. The first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is especially fun to wager on, and as the tourney gets closer we’ll be bringing you everything you need to get ready. We’ll be taking a look at all of the teams one by one, and today we’re breaking down one of the top squads in the Big 12, the Oklahoma Sooners.

Oklahoma Sooners prospects

Oklahoma sure had a rollercoaster of a season. They briefly looked like one of the best teams in the country after three straight wins over Kansas, Texas, and Alabama, then completely collapsed down the stretch. They lost five of their last six games, with the lone win in that span coming against lowly Iowa State. Making matters worse, Lon Kruger just announced that De’Vion Harmon, the team’s second-leading scorer, would miss the first two rounds due to COVID-19 issues. It’s hard to see them getting to the second weekend without him. That being said, each of their last seven losses down the stretch came by seven points or fewer, so you can make the case they just got unlucky.
