Florida vs Oklahoma Game Info

2022-23 NCAA College Basketball Regular Season Game
Florida Gators (7-4) vs. Oklahoma Sooners (8-3)
Date: Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2022
Time: 9:30 p.m. ET

The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Tuesday, Dec. 20, including a Jumpman Invitational tilt between the Florida Gators and Oklahoma Sooners.

Florida has a decent amount of momentum going, picking up an 82-48 victory over Ohio last week to win for the third time in its last four games. Oklahoma was also victorious in its most recent outing, standing strong at home for Saturday's 87-66 win against Central Arkansas.

Will Florida find another way to add to its win total? Or will Oklahoma finally win back-to-back games for the first time in nearly one month?

Best College Basketball Picks - Florida vs Oklahoma

I like Oklahoma's chances of pulling off an upset here, mainly due to its impressive offense. The Sooners are hitting an astonishing 51.5% of field-goal (No. 4) and 39.9% of three-point attempts (No. 15) this season, also averaging 80.0 PPG in their last three games.

Although Florida averages 78.6 PPG (No. 40), it isn't quite as accurate (46.5 FG%, No. 71). Furthermore, the Gators struggle to collect their misses, averaging just 7.9 offensive rebounds (No. 228). For reference, the Sooners average 23.6 defensive rebounds (T-No. 139) and just picked up 27 defensive boards against Central Arkansas.

Plus, Oklahoma has a recent win over Oklahoma, tallying a 74-67 victory in December 2021. Considering how the Sooners have also won 10 of their last 12 games against SEC foes, I'm confident that they can pick up the W tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma: 75 | Florida: 70

Florida vs Oklahoma Betting Trends

- Oklahoma is 8-2 straight up in its last 10 games.
- Florida is 5-10 against the spread (ATS) in its last 15 games.

- The total has hit the over in four of Florida's last five games against the Big 12.

Florida vs Oklahoma Picks

Regardless of which side wins this game, I'm expecting a fair amount of points on the board. Florida has a top-40 offense while Oklahoma's attack has looked stronger lately, averaging 80.0 PPG. Furthermore, the total has gone over in five of Oklahoma's last six games while doing so in four of Florida's last five against Big 12 competition.

The Gators and Sooners have also combined for more than 135.5 points in three of their previous four meetings, further reinforcing my decision to back the over.

Bet: Over 135.5 Points (-115)
