College Football Picks Analysis:
1. Oklahoma Sooners +100 - Heisman Trophy odds contender Landry Jones very well could cash in on the hardware at +900 on the moneyline. The Sooners are at 12-1 on the BCS odds and a favorable schedule gives them a chance to win it all despite an unspectacular defense.
2. Texas Longhorns +400 - The Longhorns have a very real chance to win this division if they can get some play at the quarterback position. The Longhorns minus the question mark at quarterback are slightly better than the Sooners.
3. Oklahoma Sooners +1800 – The Cowboys have great value at such steep Big 12 odds. Oklahoma State has one of the best systems in the game and are reloaded again. Losing Brandon Weeden and Jason Blackmon will not have as big of impact as expected.
