Why Bet On Texas
Texas is on a four-game winning streak after losing its season-opener with a disastrous 34-29 road loss to the Maryland Terrapins as 12-point favorites.
Moreover, head-coach Tom Herman is a smart bet when his team is the betting underdog. Over his career, Herman is 9-1 ATS as an underdog. Plus Texas has covered the betting spread in five straight head-to-head tilts as an underdog.
Why Bet On Oklahoma
The Oklahoma Sooners have only lost once in 29 games against Big 12 opponents dating back to the 2015 season. That includes winning the last ten straight. The Sooners’ most recent loss was to Iowa State on October 7, 2017. Since then Oklahoma is 13-0 SU and 7-6 ATS over its last 13 regular season games.
Texas Longhorns Vs. Oklahoma Sooners Red River Rivalry Betting Predictions
Not since 2012 have both the Sooners and Longhorns entered the Red River Showdown ranked in the top 20. That makes this game too close to call. In rivalry games too close to call, I always love betting on the underdog.
If you need betting trends to back up my pick, Oklahoma is 6-2 SU record in their last eight games against the Longhorns. But the Sooners are 0-5 ATS in the previous five games of this head-to-head series.
Take the points and bet on Texas.
