Vegas odds released for UF-OU title game

GAINESVILLE -- Florida is a three-point favorite to beat Oklahoma, according to the guys out in Vegas. CLICK ME! to view all the odds for all the bowls. Florida is 12-1 against the spread this season.

The over/under for the title game is 72. That's a lot of points, especially considering Florida's defense is allowing an average of 12.8 points per game (fifth nationally) and held the No.1-ranked team in the country to one offensive yard in the fourth quarter of the SEC championship game.

On the flip side, Oklahoma's offense is scoring points at a record-setting clip. The Sooners have scored more than 60 points in each of their last five games and are averaging 54 points per game, which leads the nation. (If you're wondering, the all-time record is 56 ppg, which was set by Army in 1944.) The Sooners have already scored 702 points this season, which is a all-time record.

Florida's offense, not too shabby in its own right, is ranked third nationally (45.15 ppg).

The over/under for the SEC championship game was 51 and Florida was favored by 10 1/2 points. The final score was 31-20. Pretty amazing.
