Texas Football Betting Odds – 2013: Longhorns 20-1 to Win 2014 BCS Championship

Texas football betting odds for 2013 had the Longhorns as the +150 favorite to win the Big 12.  But make no mistake about it, this is one tough conference with both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State listed at 2/1 odds of winning the Big 12.  All odds are courtesy of AceSportsbook.com, where you can claim hundreds of dollars in FREE cash bonus money upon joining here.

Texas was also listed with 20-1 odds of winning the BCS Championship in 2014 and OVER/UNDER -9.5 regular season wins.  The OVER was at -120.  The UNDER was priced at -110 and is the more likely scenario based on expert analysis.  Games at TCU and BCU will present the toughest challenge while a home game vs. Oklahoma has the Sooners as an early favorite.  Texas was already projected to win its game against OSU at home by most experts.  Gambling911.com says go with the UNDER 9.5 regular season games at -110.

The Longhorns have the Big 12’s most-talented roster and return 17 starters while OSU has lost three senior offensive linemen already and just learned that starting tackle Davin Davis will be out for the season with a torn ACL.  The Cowboys were widely seen as the favorite to win the Big 12 in 2013. 

David Fox of AthlonSports.com writes of Texas’ chances:

Texas is tough team to project. The talent is there for a 10-win season or a Big 12 title, but this group has underachieved. Having Jordan Hicks back on defense and one of the few experienced quarterbacks will work in Texas’ favor. The Longhorns should benefit from teams in the Big 12 being down a bit — Kansas State, Texas Tech, West Virginia and Iowa State won’t be as good as we’ve seen in recent years. While Oklahoma State and Oklahoma will challenge for the league title, neither appear to be as good as they were two years ago. That’s a window Texas must climb through.
