Over red-hot in Texas vs. OK State matchups
Big 12 rivals clash in Stillwater tonight when unranked Oklahoma State hosts No. 23 Texas at 9:00PM ET on ESPN2.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Longhorns are now 4.5-point road favorites versus the Cowboys while the over/under is sitting at 128.5 points. We say "now" because Texas opened as a 3.5-point favorite before the line was bet up a full point. The total has also jumped a point-and-a-half after opening at 127.
There's a reason for the movement on the total: The over has been a ridiculously good play for bettors when these two teams meet. The combined score has gone over the total in the last eight games between Texas and OK State, and is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Stillwater.
The Longhorns have played over the total in four of their last four games coming off a double-digit loss at home and the over is 4-1-1 in their last six games overall. On the other side, the over is a perfect 6-0 in the Cowboys' last six games versus a team with a winning record.
