Betting Odds: Texas -5.5 (-110) - Over/Under (60.5)
Pick: Over 60.5 (-110)
One of the most important games of the college football season will be taking place here on Saturday afternoon in Dallas, Texas. As one of the most traditional and historic rivalries will be taking place at center stage in primetime at the Cotton Bowl. As the undefeated Oklahoma Sooners will take on the undefeated Texas Longhorns with the winner getting the inside track at the Big 12 conference regular season championship as well as an inside track at making the college football playoffs as well. This could go down as one of the greatest rivalry games in the history of the series, as both teams are playing fantastic football, and both teams would likely go undefeated if they did not play each other this season.
The Oklahoma Sooners are having a fantastic season right now, as they have recovered nicely from their rough year in the first year of Brent Venables’s tenure as the head coach of Oklahoma. The Sooners have themselves positioned to win the Big 12 in their final year, a part of the conference before they head to the SEC next season along with Texas, and they will be looking to leave their mark on the league by ending their tenure with a conference championship.
Oklahoma has looked unstoppable throughout the first five games of the season and that is something they will be hoping to replicate here on Saturday afternoon when they face their toughest task of the year in the form of a top three ranked Texas Longhorns football team. Oklahoma will have to play mistake free football and they will have to find a way to finish drives with touchdowns rather than field goals if they want to pick up a victory over Texas in this game.

Texas has looked fantastic throughout the season and they will be looking to add another marquee to their record here on Saturday afternoon when they play the Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Rivalry. Texas has shown they could handle tough environments after they went on the road to Tuscaloosa and beat Alabama earlier on this season and they will be looking to handle a hostile crowd in Dallas that will be split down the middle as they look for another massive victory to continue their undefeated season.
They will have to play a clean game, much like their opponents in this one and they will have to find a way to get the football into the end zone for touchdowns rather than settle for field goals if they want to grab a victory in this game against Oklahoma. I expect this to be a high scoring quality game between two of the biggest programs in the history of college football as both of them look too keep their undefeated season alive and stay in the drivers seat for the college football playoff hunt with a quality victory on their résumé when the dust settles here on Saturday afternoon in Dallas.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- 5 out of the last 6 games have gone over 60 points
- Texas averages 36 Points Per Game this season
- Oklahoma is second in the nation with 45 PPG
I expect this to be a solid back-and-forth game between these two Blue Bloods of college football, and I look for it to be an offensive shootout between Oklahoma and Texas here on Saturday. As I look for this game to be high scoring, and regardless of the result, I expected to go over the total points line here on Saturday afternoon in Dallas as both of these teams look to pick up a massive victory to start their season with six consecutive wins. This is a game that is too close to the results of and that is why I’m taking the safer bet and going with the over line here in this one.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
