Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns NCAA Football betting preview, odds and picks

A clear difference can immediately be seen in the Big 12. Normally Oklahoma is the College football betting bell cow of the conference.  Texas is always touted as the top challenger to the Sooners.  This year is a wild card.  Consider both teams are coming of losses heading into this week’s Red River Shootout.  Each year this matchup held at the Texas Fairgrounds is a college football tradition.  Indeed, most years it’s a shootout.  Big 12 defenses are scoffed at for plenty of good reasons.  Offense is what this league is all about.  Defense is an afterthought.

Oklahoma Limps in With Rare Two-Game Losing Streak

Oklahoma has betting on college football record of 1-2 straight up and against the spread.  Two of their three games cleared the total.  Offensively the Sooners rank ninth overall second for passing, 57th for rushing, 19th for scoring, and 28th for turnovers.  By contrast, defensively they are 14th overall, 31st against the pass, ninth against the rush, 29th for points allowed, and 58th for takeaways.

Last week Oklahoma lost at Iowa State 37-30.  OU was 7.5-point chalk with the game clearing 62.5.  Previously the Sooners were upset in a 38-35 home loss to Kansas State.  KSU rallied from a 35-14 third-quarter deficit.  This is indicative of the Sooners inability to clamp down when it matters most.

Freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler has been good but not perfect.  To illustrate his rating is 187.3 with a 73% completion rate.  He is averaging 10.4 yards per pass with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions.

Texas Coming off Consecutive Track Meets

Now Texas is 2-1 straight up, 1-2 vs. the odds, and 3-0 over the total.  TCU upset the Longhorns 33-31 as 11-point road dogs on Saturday.  Over a total of 61 paid as well.

Offensively Texas ranks seventh overall, 13th for passing, 23rd for rushing, first for scoring, and 41st for turnovers.  Counter to that is defensive marks of 28th overall, 37th against the pass, 29th against the rush, 48th for points allowed, and 17th for takeaways.

Senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger has a 173.2 rating.  Additionally, he has a 14/2 touchdown to interception ratio.  Ehlinger is averaging 8.5 yards per pass attempt.

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns Against the Spread

In Big 12 Conference games Texas is 2-5 against the spread.  So to have three of their last five Big 12 games gone under.  Texas has paid in six of their last 11 games.  What’s more four of their last seven stayed under.  Accordingly, the Longhorns are 3-6 vs. the odds away from home.  Three of their last five in that place cleared the bet on NCAAF total.

Oklahoma has covered only two of their last six Big 12 games.  OU is 7-1-1 over the total against Big 12 teams.  OU has dropped nine of their last 12 to the spread.  Five of their last seven stayed under.  Oklahoma has covered just four of their last 13 away games.  Moreover, four of their last five away games went under.

Head to head Texas has covered seven of their last eight with Oklahoma.  Three of the last four in this series went under.
