Betting Odds

Point Spread: 
Oklahoma -7.5

The renewal of one college football’s biggest rivalries, the formerly named Red River Shootout features a battle of two heavyweights. The Oklahoma Sooners (4-1) will take on the Texas Longhorns (3-2) at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas at the annual Texas State Fair. The festivities will commence at 3:30 PM ET and will be televised for national audiences on FOX. The most recent edition of The Red River Showdown was a classic in 2016. The Sooners would edge out the Longhorns in a 45-40 shootout while closing as a double-digit favorite. In 2015, the Sooners were upset by the Longhorns as an eighteen-point favorite.

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns Overview

Oklahoma comes in off a catastrophic loss in what was classed as a historic upset. As a 31-point favorite at the close, the Sooners would be upended by the visiting Iowa State Cyclones. The Sooners would hold a two-touchdown lead before ISU would resurge and shock the Sooners in Norman. The last time Iowa State defeated Oklahoma in Norman was 27 years ago. The loss has all but written off Oklahoma’s College Football Playoff hopes. Texas was tested last week but prevailed in overtime. The Horns as a 6.5-point choice would rally back to defeat the Kansas State Wildcats in extra time. Previous to this, Texas defeated Oklahoma’s assailant on a Thursday night contest by a score of 17-7.

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns Week 7 ATS Prediction

The Sooners owned the longest current active winning streak in the country but that has come to a screeching halt. No one result has sent ripples through the college football landscape like what Iowa State did to Oklahoma, last Saturday. Very quickly the market has shown a bias and reluctance toward the Crimson and Cream. A presiding notion is that since Texas beat Iowa State by ten, they will likely have their way in this contest. Heavy steam indicates that many takers are operating off this philosophy. However, there is probably not a better time to take Oklahoma given the fact their stock is so low. With the CFP all but wrapped up at this point, wrecking Texas will serve as a great moral victory for the Sooners.
