SBG Global Opening Line: Texas   - 34 , Total 68.5

Thanksgiving Day college football betting action includes a Big 12 rivalry game between Texas A&M and Texas.  Normally when these two teams get together a good game can be expected but one look at the college football betting pointspread will tell you that is unlikely this time.

SBG Global reports that early college football betting has the public taking Texas at Home.

There are a number of factors that point to a blowout in this game.  First, the Longhorns need a big win to impress the pollsters.  Second, Texas has lost the last two years against A&M and wants revenge.  Third, Texas A&M just isn't very good. A motivated Texas team is not good news for the Aggies. "We weren't happy walking in after that game, none of us. We weren't happy for Texas fans or ourselves or the players. A change was made at that time. It's been put in place and these kids have played hard every day since that day." Texas head coach Mack Brown said, "That's why I expect them to play hard on Thursday night, I expect them to be tough on Thursday night and I expect them to play well. We're not talking a lot about the last two years because this is a different team than the last two years. This team has not had a flat game. They haven't had a soft game."  What should also be expected on Thursday night is another excellent game by Texas quarterback Colt McCoy.  He has thrown 30 touchdown passes this season and should add to that total against a weak A&M defense that gave up 41 points to Baylor last week.

Here are the college football betting stats for Thursday's game. The Aggies are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games in November.  The Aggies are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The Aggies are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Texas.

The Longhorns are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Longhorns are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The home team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings between the two teams.

SBG Global Current Line: Texas   - 35.5 , Total 67.5

The Over is 8-1 in the Aggies last 9 conference games. The Over is 22-8-1 in the Aggies last 31 road games. The Over is 5-1 in the Longhorns last 6 games in November.
