Texas has dropped three of its last four games, including a 28-7 defeat to the Baylor Bears as 13.5-point home underdogs last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for the fourth time in five opportunities this season.  The Longhorns are ranked 114th nationally in total offense, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 7 college football betting picks, as quarterback Tyrone Swoopes has failed to deliver in replacement of David Ash.  Texas is 1-4 SUATS as underdogs of 10.5 to 21 points the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 4-1 in that situation.

The Longhorns hold a 60-43-5 series lead in the Red River Rivalry—the only Big 12 Conference program that holds an advantage over the Sooners.  Texas will need to win this game on the defensive end under first-year head coach Charlie Strong, as the stop unit sits behind just 20 teams in allowing just 19.2 points per game.  The team’s 20 sacks in the first five games is the most by the school in that category since 1985.

Oklahoma’s goal of a perfect season was washed away in suffering a 37-33 setback to the TCU Horned Frogs as 3.5-point road favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total for the fourth time in five opportunities.  The Sooners are 22-1 SU in their last 23 games versus unranked opponents, which fits nicely with the Longhorns being 4-17 in their last 21 games versus top-25 foes.  Head coach Bob Stoops has also led the program to 10 straight rematch wins against teams that the squad lost to the previous season.  Oklahoma is 7-3 SU and 2-8 ATS as favorites of 10.5 to 21 points the last two-plus seasons.

The Sooners have registered a takeaway in nine straight games—posting a turnover margin of plus-15 over that stretch.  Over the last nine games, Oklahoma has out-gained opponents by an average of 110.2 rushing yards, while also owning a plus-16 advantage in terms of rushing touchdowns.

Sports bettors will likely back the Sooners due to the favorite being 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings in this rivalry.
