NCAA Football Betting - It’s Red River Rivalry Time in The Big 12

Texas vs. Oklahoma BettingThose who bet on NCAA football should be very familiar with the Red River Rivalry: the annual Texas-Oklahoma game is one of the most anticipated matchups every season. The Longhorns are coming off a big loss, while the Sooners have been just getting by. But records don’t matter in this game, and both teams are going to bring it.

Texas Oklahoma Betting – Saturday, October 2nd, 3:30 PM ET

The No.21 (3-1) Longhorns committed five turnovers and their defense finally gave up in a 34-12 loss to UCLA, their worst loss in Austin under Mack Brown. The Longhorns also committed eight penalties, and they gave up a startling 267 yards on the ground against a team that never even tried to pass, they just kept hitting Texas in the mouth. Garrett Gilbert was 30-of-45 for 264 yards, a touchdown and a pick for the Longhorns, who also fumbled four times. It was probably the worst performance by the Longhorns since a 20-point loss at home to Kansas State in 2007, and this will be the perfect game for Texas to get back on track.

The No.8 (4-0) Sooners were taken to the limit once again, holding on for a tight 31-29 win at Cincinnati. Landry Jones was 36-of-51 for 370 yards, two touchdowns and a pick as the Sooners couldn’t establish the running game, averaging 1.9 yards on 43 carries. While the Sooners gave up 461 yards, they also forced four turnovers, and those who bet on NFL odds will tell you that they’ll take that (example: last year’s Super Bowl-winning defense from New Orleans).

If you do a sportsbook review, you’ll see that the Sooners are a 4-point favorite at this neutral-site affair (this game has been played at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas since 1924). The Longhorns have won four of the last five meetings straight up, and are 4-0-1 ATS in that time, but they’re very vulnerable right now. Jones is a far better quarterback than Gilbert, and the Texas defense showed they can be pushed around up front, which should have Murray and the Oklahoma ground game licking their chops. The Texas offense can’t have the turnovers they had last week, which puts the defense in bad predicaments. This is the beginning of what should be a back-to-back that decides the Longhorns’ season as they head to Nebraska next week, while the Sooners are at home to Iowa State next week and can completely focus on Texas. If the Sooners are going to start a run against the hated Longhorns, it has to start here. We’re taking the Sooners to win rather handily in your best online sportsbook.
