Texas a tough road test for OU Saturday
No. 3 Oklahoma will face a stiff challenge today from fellow Big 12 rival No. 25 Texas at 2:00PM ET on CBS.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Sooners are currently 2-point road favorites at the Longhorns while the over/under is sitting at 145.5 points.
While Oklahoma has struggled at the betting window versus winning teams (8-12 ATS), Texas has thrived against such opponents. When playing against a team with a winning record after 15 or more games, the Longhorns are 9-3 against the spread. And when playing an opponent scoring 77-plus points per game after 15-plus contests, Texas is 6-2 against the number.
Buddy Hield ha struggled to find his shot and even though Ryan Spangler is coming off a career-high 26 points and 14 rebounds versus Oklahoma State, the Longhorns are 13-2 at home this season with a victory over then-No. 3 North Carolina. They'll be tough to beat again in the latest Red River Rivalry matchup.
