The Sooners are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Longhorns are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 8-2 in Sooners last 10 overall. The over is 6-0 in Longhorns last 6 overall. The road team is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The underdog is 14-3 ATS in the last 17 meetings.
Both teams are playing good basketball entering this contest and it’s a rivalry where the underdog has dominated against the spread. The Texas Longhorns have won six of the last nine meetings against Oklahoma, but I usually side toward the points in a rivalry game where you’re going to get the best from both sides. Oklahoma is more than capable of winning this game outright. Give me the points.
