NCAA football wagering fans will have their choice of two teams that annually decide the Big 12 South Division title with this college football betting online showdown.
Sports-Gambling opened with Oklahoma as a 4 point favorite. Kickoff is set for 3:35 PM Eastern and the game can be seen on ABC.
The Oklahoma Sooners have a record of 4-0 straight up but just 1-3 with the NCAA odds. The Sooners squeaked by Cincinnati last week 31-29 as 14 point road favorites. OU has split their 4 games with the over/under board so far.
The passing attack ranks10th in the country as quarterback Landry Jones has completed 65% of his passes for 1221 yards and a 9/3 touchdown to interception ratio. His favorite target far and away has been Ryan Broyles, who has 41 catches for 482 yards and 4 touchdowns.
What has been shocking so far about OU has been their defense, which ranks 97th in the country. Head coach Bob Stoops is renowned for his defensive prowess which makes that ranking worrisome to many handicappers.
The Texas Longhorns are 3-1 straight up but just 1-3 with the NCAA football odds. Texas was humiliated last week in a 34-12 home loss to UCLA as 15.5 point home favorites as the Bruins chewed up and spit out the highly touted Longhorn defense for 264 yards rushing and a 35:29 time of possession.
Texas is ranked just 36th for points allowed and is now 20th against the run. Even worse, the offense is yet to take shape for Texas and ranks 77th for total yards. Quarterback Garrett Gilbert has an even 4/4 split on touchdowns and interceptions and is averaging only 6.4 yards per attempt.
The ground attack remains a traditional weakness and ranks 76th in the country.
Oklahoma has failed to cover the spread in their last 5 consecutive NCAA football wagering matchups with Texas and 3 of the last 4 meetings between the teams have gone under the total. Last year’s game was a push as Texas beat Oklahoma 16-13 as 3 point favorites as the game stayed well beneath the total of 52.
