Oklahoma Sooners Win Against Rhode Island - Payout Odds - 2018 March Madness

An Oklahoma Sooners win against the Rhode Island Rams would pay out $12 for every $10 bet with an outright win on the money line.  Oklahoma winning the 2018 NCAA Men's College Basketball Championship pays $15000 for every $100 bet.

The Sooners are a team that made it to the Final Four only two years ago but are they deserving of even being in this year's Big Dance?

Charles Barkley doesn't seem to think so, and with good reason.  Oklahoma started 14-2 but lost 11 of its final 15 games.

Barkley then jumped in, wondering acerbically just how highly the committee had ranked Oklahoma before its swoon. “They were 2-8 [to end the season] … what, were they a No. 1 seed before they went 2-8, to drop all the way down to 10?” he asked the tournament’s selection committee chairman, Bruce Rasmussen during the Selection Sunday Show, to laughter.

“So they got in comfortably,” Barkley added, not done with his interrogation, “but they were 2-8, so they must have been a really high seed before they dropped all the way down to 10.” The former NBA great, who usually analyzes professional basketball for TNT but has made appearances on recent selections shows, also asked about Southern California getting snubbed in favor of Arizona State and Syracuse.
