Why #6 Oklahoma is a good bet -7.5?

Few teams, if any, can keep up with the Sooners’ offense. Oklahoma averages close to 50 points per game. They’ve scored 48 or more in their last 6. Oklahoma scored 50 or more in wins over TCU, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Kansas, and West Virginia.

In their last, an elimination bout, Oklahoma beat West Virginia 59-56 on the road. Even if Texas can manage to keep up with Oklahoma like they did in the Red River Rivalry, the Sooners will eventually pull away from the Longhorns.

Texas vs Oklahoma Final Betting Analysis

Texas beat Oklahoma 48-45 in overtime earlier this season in the Red River Rivalry. Although the Longhorns didn’t look great when battling Kansas in Week 13, they no doubt had their minds already on this game.

The Longhorns are a decent football team. They’re good enough to keep this one desperately close on their own. Luckily for Texas, Oklahoma will help them keep it close because it doesn’t appear the Sooners play defense anymore. Oklahoma’s given up way too many points in their last few games.

Texas covers while Oklahoma squeaks out a victory.
