Texas vs Oklahoma Prediction & Pick
Oklahoma has fallen from a top-10 team to out of the AP Top 25 after two losses as the betting favorite. Still, the Sooners have a strong offensive stat profile averaging 221 yards rushing and 260 yards passing per game and averaging 37 points per contest. But the injury and absence of QB Gabriel is a major adjustment in the handicap and match-up against Texas.
Texas is favored for the first time in this rivalry since 2009. The Longhorns have played a tougher schedule and have a strong +2.1 yards per play margin. The longhorns have lost a pair of tight, close games to Alabama (20-19) and Texas Tech after holding leads including by 2 TDs over the Red Raiders in a 37-34 OT loss.
Texas QB Quinn Ewers has not played the last three games since getting knocked out against Alabama. Monitor his status to start, but backup QB Hudson Card did pass for 303 yards and 3 TDs in last weeks 38-20 win over West Virginia.
Final Score Prediction: Texas: 34 | Oklahoma 23

Texas vs Oklahoma Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Oklahoma defense has been shredded the last two games including allowing TCU's potent, balanced offense to rush for 361 yards and pass for 307 yards in a 55-24 smashing of the Sooners. The week prior, Kansas State rushed for 275 yards and passed for 234 in a 41-34 win over Oklahoma.
Texas star RB Bijan Robinson looks primed to have his biggest game rushing this season. Tough to bet into sharp rises in the side and total, and uncertain quarterback situations. But lean towards the Longhorns and under the total, as Texas looks more capable to smack the Sooners and the Longhorns defense was stout in their loss to Alabama.
Bet: Texas -9.5 (-110)
