Texas vs. Oklahoma

Sportsbook.com has your Texas vs. Oklahoma betting odds and preview in what should be one of the most wagered on games of Week 5 in College Football. 

Kickoff: Saturday, 3:30 p.m. EDT

Sportsbook.com Betting Lines: Oklahoma -3.5, Total: 45

With Texas embarrassing 34-12 home loss to UCLA last week, this year’s Red River Rivalry lost some luster. But other than its big win over FSU in Week 2, Oklahoma has struggled to an 0-3 ATS record against Utah State, Air Force and Cincinnati.

Texas has not looked sharp on offense all season, culminating with last week’s four-turnover first half. Highly-touted sophomore QB Garrett Gilbert has just four TD and four INT, and Fozzy Whittaker is the only Longhorns player averaging more than 35 rushing yards per game (45.5). And after giving up a total of 132 rushing yards in its first three wins, Texas allowed 264 rushing yards to UCLA.

Oklahoma has had no such trouble on offense, ranking 10th among FBS schools with 309 passing YPG. QB Landry Jones has nine TD and three picks, and WR Ryan Broyles is playing at the top of his game with a nation-leading 41 catches (with 482 yds and four TD). Speaking of stars, RB DeMarco Murray already has 547 total yards (436 rushing, 111 receiving) and eight total touchdowns. But none of these three players did much in last year’s 16-13 Red River loss. Jones threw 19 incomplete passes including two picks, Broyles had just two catches and Murray rushed for minus-3 yards (although he did rack up 116 receiving yards).

Texas has won four of the past five meetings with OU, including the ugly win last year where the teams combined for eight turnovers and 21 penalties. More importantly, Texas is also 4-0-1 ATS over that stretch.

Here are some NCAAF betting trends to consider before submitting your Red River Rivalry wagers:

Play On - Underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points (TEXAS) - after 1 or more consecutive straight up losses against opponent after 4 or more consecutive straight up wins. (77-33 over the last 10 seasons.) (70%, +40.7 units. Rating = 3*).

Texas head coach Mack Brown is 19-5 ATS (+13.5 Units) after a game with a turnover margin of -2 or worse as the coach of TEXAS. The average score was TEXAS 42.4, OPPONENT 16.8 - (Rating = 3*).

Brown is 22-6 OVER (+15.4 Units) vs. excellent passing teams with a completion pct. of 62% or better as the coach of TEXAS. The average score was TEXAS 39.4, OPPONENT 27.8 - (Rating = 3*).
