What The Line Should Really Be On The Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns Week 6 Game

Oklahoma comes into their Week 6 game with an 89.32 power rating.   That's third best in the nation.  Texas is 10th best with an 84.99 rating.  Gambling911.com has a line of Sooners -1.5.  The actual line opened at Oklahoma -3.5, so there is a 2-point overlay detected.  Be careful here though as the Sooners are just 1-4 Against The Spread despite being 5-0 Straight Up.

The Sooners got a 37-31 road win against a K-State team that had beaten them the past two seasons, so no small feat there. But the Sooners are underperforming based on their ATS record.

Spencer Rattler finished with 243 yards passing and two touchdowns Saturday, Brooks ran for 91 yards and a score in a big bounce-back game, and the Sooners recovered an onside kick with just over a minute left to wrap up a 37-31 victory that ended a maddening two-game losing streak to the Wildcats.

“You have to find ways to win. We’ve won in several different ways early in the season,” said Sooners coach Lincoln Riley, whose team is nonetheless 5-0 and 2-0 in the Big 12. “I think that bodes well because this team has some grit in them.”

Texas, meanwhile, had Bijan Robinson run for a career-high 216 yards with two go-ahead touchdowns and Texas won 32-27 at TCU on Saturday in the Longhorns’ first Big 12 road game since accepting an invitation to join the Southeastern Conference.
