Oklahoma at Texas picks and predictions
Texas 79, Oklahoma 66
Even with Texas (-575) expected to cruise to a victory at home, it isn’t worth taking the Longhorns to win at the current odds.
TEXAS -10.5 (-105) is the ideal choice in this Big 12 matchup with how it performs at home. The Longhorns are 14-1 straight up at home and the Sooners are 4-8-1 ATS in conference games this season.
Oklahoma is 0-4 ATS in its last 4 road games and Texas is 6-0 ATS in its last 6 games following a loss.
OVER 143.5 (-105) is the lean in this game with the Over hitting in each of the last 2 meetings. Texas is averaging 79.5 points per game (25th), so we’ll just need Oklahoma to score some points late to hit the Over.
The Sooners have achieved the Over in 5 of their last 6 games overall and the Longhorns are 8-1-1 to the Over in their last 10 home games.
