Cheez-It Bowl: Florida State vs. Oklahoma Odds, Predictions, Picks

Cheez-It Bowl Florida State vs. Oklahoma

As we head into the Cheez-It Bowl on December 29, we have the Oklahoma Sooners and Florida State Seminoles set to battle.

In terms of opt-outs, both teams will be without several players, but the Sooners will have fewer high-impact players, as the following are opting out:

  • RB Eric Gray
  • OT Wanya Morris
  • OT Anton Harrison
  • DT Jalen Redmond

Let’s see how these opt-outs will impact this game by looking at the best bets. 

Florida State vs. Oklahoma Best Bets

Pick: Florida State -9.5 (-110) at FanDuel

At 6-6 and barely making it into a bowl game, the Sooners are a team without their star running back, two offensive tackles, and a dependable interior defensive player.

There’s something to be said about motivation, and it’s hard to see how the Sooners have much of any here without those top players.

Meanwhile, the Seminoles, who finished the season with nine wins, will have players like Jared Verse in the lineup, who’s looking to add more stock to his NFL Draft profile.

The Sooners defense has been atrocious this season, allowing 189 rushing (108th in the nation) and 264 passing (111th in the nation) yards per game. 

Take the Seminoles and quarterback Jordan Travis and don’t look back.

The Seminoles should be able to score early and often in this one against the lousy Sooners defense. Still, the Sooners, without two offensive tackles and their top running back, are running out of options.

Quarterback Dillon Gabriel has played relatively well this year, but he can’t do it alone. 

Both teams will score, but the Sooners are too vulnerable to help bring this total north of 66.5
