The SEC versus the Big-12 challenge is going down this weekend with the headline being the matchup between the #9 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide and the #24 Oklahoma Sooners. Alabama took down Kentucky in their last game to sweep the series with the Wildcats for the first time since 1989, while the Sooners took down #5 Texas in their last battle.
Alabama Crimson Tide
The Crimson Tide have been quite the surprise this season in the SEC. Alabama was projected to finish anywhere from fourth to seventh in the conference according to KenPom, but they have dominated league play so far. They have rattled off nine-straight conference wins and now will try to grab another quality win against a ranked Oklahoma team.
Alabama will be facing an Oklahoma defense that has struggled to defend the perimeter, ranking #260 overall in defensive efficiency in the country.
Senior guard John Petty Jr. leads Alabama with 13.9 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. He got off to a very slow start this season, but his confidence has returned to normal. The second-leading scorer for the tide is sophomore guard Jaden Shackelford, who is scoring 13.5 points. He had 21 points in Tuesday’s win over Kentucky.
Alabama averages 81.06 points per game and allows 69.94 points a night. The Tide is shooting 43.63 percent from the field and 35.99 percent from downtown.
The Sooners enter this game with Alabama currently riding a four-game winning streak and are 5-0 ATS in their last five games. They picked up a quality win over against number #5 Texas in their last battle and have a chance to pick up another victory against a top -10 opponent on Saturday.
Oklahoma has not shot the ball particularly well this season, but it does a really nice job of avoiding turnovers. Its 14.6 percent turnover rate is good for the seventh-best in the country.
Senior guard Austin Reaves leads Oklahoma with 15.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game. He scored 23 points and pulled down six boards in Tuesday’s road win at Texas. Sophomore guard De’Vion Harmon is scoring 12.8 points on 48.5 percent shooting this season. He is averaging 14.3 points in nine home games.
Oklahoma is scoring 77.64 points per game while giving up 67.79 points per contest. They are shooting 44.74% from the floor and 33.93% from beyond the arc.
- Alabama is 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games.
- The total has gone OVER in 5 of Alabama’s last 7 games.
- Alabama is 10-0 SU in their last 10 games.
- Alabama is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Free Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Oklahoma Sooners NCAAB Prediction:
I love Oklahoma in this game. I think that the Crimson Tide has been a bit overvalued as they have been mowing down a watered-down SEC while the Sooners have faced some juggernauts in the Big-12. Oklahoma’s only losses this season have come to Baylor, Kansas on the road and Texas Tech on the road, while the Tide has some pretty bad losses from earlier this season. Austin Reaves has come on as of late for the Sooners and I think that he can get his team past this red hot Crimson Tide squad.
