According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Bovada.lv, the over/under for Saturday’s matchup currently sits at 65.5 points, up from the original number of 65. As for the side, Texas opened as a 6-point home underdogs but the line jumped to 7 at the majority of online sports books.

As of this writing, 63% of public bettors are backing the Cowboys and laying the seven points. While that figure isn’t eye-popping, that could be why the line jumped a full point from 6 up to 7. That, coupled with a sharp bettor or two also grabbing Oklahoma State at the early 6-point number.

The Cowboys are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five trips to Austin and have covered the spread in five of their last seven games versus the Longhorns overall. The road team is also an impressive 9-1 against the spread in the last 10 meetings between these two teams while the favorite is an overwhelming 16-5 at the betting window in the last 21 meetings. The under, meanwhile, 5-0-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams when the game is played in Austin.

WHO COVERS: Texas. The Longhorns are coming off an emotional loss to Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry but Texas has been a good bet coming off that loss. The ‘Horns are 18-1 straight up and 14-4 at the betting window in the game following the Red River Rivalry. So it’s a narrative that Texas suffers a letdown after that game. Plus, Tom herman is a perfect 7-0 against the spread as an underdog, which includes five outright upsets. I like the home dog in this spot.
