Texas vs. Oklahoma football odds: Sooners favored by a field goal

Malcolm Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The books give the Sooners an edge in Saturday's Red River Shootout

Oklahoma is favored by oddsmakers to beat the Texas Longhorns this Saturday in Dallas. Most books opened with the Sooners as three-point favorites, and the line hasn't moved much since.

The 4-1 Longhorns and 3-1 Sooners have both dropped a game in Big 12 play before their meeting at the Cotton Bowl, something that hasn't often been true in this series. Neither team can afford another loss to keep pace with West Virginia and Kansas State in the conference race.

Texas has averaged 46.8 points per game, and will face an Oklahoma defense that's allowed 16 ppg. The Sooners are scoring 38.3 ppg, and the Longhorns have allowed 26.4 ppg. The over-under is set at 60 at most shops.

Oklahoma is 4-8 against the spread in its last 12 conference games. Texas is 2-7 ATS in its last nine games playing as the underdog. The Sooners are 8-4 straight up in their last 12 games against Texas.
