Oklahoma Vs Texas Red River Showdown Odds

Oklahoma Vs Texas Red River Showdown Odds

A pair of head-coaches are going into the biggest games of their coaching careers this weekend. Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley and Texas coach Tom Herman will be facing off on opposite sidelines for the Red River Showdown for the first time when the teams meet Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The Week 7 college football odds favor the Sooners by 7.5-points over the Longhorns.

Herman was a graduate assistant under Mack Brown with the Longhorns in 1999 and 2000. Riley spent the last two seasons as Oklahoma’s offensive coordinator. It’s the first time since 1947 that this long-standing rivalry has featured new coaches on both sides in the same season.

Why Bet The Oklahoma Sooners To Beat The Longhorns

The Sooners were upset by Iowa State 38-31 last week and are looking for a bounce-back win. Oklahoma hasn’t lost back-to-back regular-season games since 1999 — Bob Stoops’ first season in Norman. The second loss of that stretch came against the Longhorns.

Will history repeat? Or will the Sooners return to their winning ways?

"The biggest thing for us is realizing that we still have it all out in front of us," Mayfield said. "It’s in our own control. It doesn’t matter what anybody else does. If we win out and take care of our business, I have all the confidence in the world that we could end up in the playoffs — and we should."

Prior to last week the Sooners had started 4-0 by averaging 48 points per game. Oklahoma has also outgained each of its five opponents this season by an average of 230 yards.

Why Bet The Texas Longhorns To Beat The Sooners

Texas is 3-1 SU and 4-0 ATS over its last four games. That includes a 30-24 double-OT win against K-State. That was enough to cover the 5-point spread. Two weeks ago the Longhorns won at Iowa State 17-7, covering another five-point spread. Before that, they lost at USC in overtime 27-24 but covered easily as 17-point ‘dogs. And before that they beat San Jose State 56-0, covering as 25-point chalk. 

This team has a knack for covering the point-spread, but do they have enough juice to keep it close against the Sooners?

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On

  • Sooners are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.
  • Sooners are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss.
  • Longhorns are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog.
  • Longhorns are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall.

Oklahoma Vs. Texas Week 7 Betting Analysis

Oklahoma has won five of the last seven games in the Red Rivalry showdown, but Texas is 4-0 against the spread in the last four games in the series.

The Texas defense has the talent to hold Baker Mayfield and the rest of the Sooners offense in check. Take the Longhorns with the points.

The Hoosiers rank second in three-and-outs and are hosting the leader in that category in Big Ten action. The Week 7 college football spread favors Michigan by a touchdown over Indiana.

Kick-off is this Saturday, October 14th at 12:00 PM ET on ABC from Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana.

Why Bet The Michigan Wolverines To Beat The Hoosiers

Michigan’s defense is going to have to carry the team for a few weeks until QB Wilton Speight can return from several broken ribs. Good thing the Wolverines ranks No. 1 nationally in total defense, allowing 213 yards per game.

Michigan gives up only 13.6 points per game. That’s good enough for seventh best in the nation in points allowed. They held Michigan State to 252 total yards a week ago and kept the Spartans to 2 of 14 on third-down conversations.

Senior QB John O’Korn is starting in place of Speight. O’Korn has completed 35 of 62 passes for 503 yards with four interceptions and one touchdown this season. He threw three interceptions Saturday in the Wolverines’ 14-10 loss to Michigan State.

Why Bet The Indiana Hoosiers To Beat The Wolverines

The Hoosiers are 3-0 against unranked teams. Nevertheless, hosting Michigan is the perfect chance to beat a ranked team this season. So far Indiana is 0-2 against ranked teams this season, losing to Ohio State and Penn State. Those losses weren’t a surprise.

Indiana held Charleston Southern scoreless last week. The Hoosiers can load up the box again against Michigan and let O’Korn beat them if he can. Last season, Indiana held O’Korn to just 7 of 16 for 59 yards.

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:

  • Wolverines are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games following an ATS loss.
  • Wolverines are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game.
  • Hoosiers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.

Michigan Vs. Indiana Week 5 Betting Analysis:

The Wolverines have won 21 consecutive games in the series. The Hoosiers’ last win over Michigan was 30 years ago in Bloomington.

Take the Wolverines to win this by double digits.

Washington State Vs California Line & Betting Analysis

Washington State Vs California Line & Betting Analysis

Every week talk of 8th-ranked Washington State becoming part of the College Football playoffs is growing. The Cougars cannot afford to lose to a team like California on Friday night in Berkeley. The Week 7 college football line favors Washington State by 13.5-points. Kick-off is this Friday, October 13th at 10:30 PM ET on ESPN from the Memorial Stadium.

Why Bet The Washington State Cougars To Beat The Golden Bears

Washington State’s M.O. remains their passing game. The Cougars ranked third nationally in passing. Senior QB Luke Falk leads the nation with 19 touchdowns while tossing just a pair of picks. Falk has thrown 108 career TDs, which ranks second all-time in the Pac-12. He is only eight away from former Trojan Matt Barkley’s record.

The Cougars average 392.0 passing yards per game. They are coming off a 282-passing yard performance against Oregon last week in a 33-10 road victory.

Falk threw five touchdown passes in the Cougars’ 56-21 victory over Cal in Pullman, Wash., last year, and the fact that the Bears rank 108th nationally in passing yards allowed this season does not bode well for Cal in Friday’s meeting.

Another such performance might make Falk a more serious Heisman Trophy candidate.

Why Bet The California Golden Bears To Beat The Cougars

The Golden Bears of California started off the season by winning their first three games. Now three losses later Cal’s dreams of a prime-time bowl are gone. The 38-7 loss to Washington last week, in which the Cal offense failed to score a point, was the low point.

“Obviously a really disappointing performance,” Cal first-year coach Justin Wilcox said. “We didn’t do anything on offense to give us a chance. We’re going to have to re-evaluate some things.”

Cal needs to get back to basics. In the Bears’ first three wins, it was all about sophomore QB Ross Bowers. He threw five of his nine TDs those wins. Bowers has struggled lately and passed for just 80 yards against the Huskies.

Having time to throw will help. Bowers was sacked seven times against Washington and has been sacked 17 times over the past three games.

California is 10-2 SU in its last 12 games when playing Washington State and 5-1 SU in its last six games when playing at home against the Cougars.

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On

  • Cougars are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall.
  • Cougars are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win.
  • Golden Bears are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a home underdog.

Washington State Vs. California Week 7 Betting Analysis

Luke Falk is the hottest hand in College Football right. Forget all the hype about Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen. Falk is the best QB in the PAC-12. Washington State will put enough points to win and cover on the road.
