Fade Faves Between OU and Texas?

Taking the plunge and backing the favorite between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns has been a terrible idea for bettors in recent memory, as the faves are just 1-6 ATS in the past seven matchups between the two teams. To make matters worse for OU backers, the Sooners are just 7-9 ATS when giving up points this season. Texas will travel to Norman, Oklahoma on Monday to take on their Big 12 rivals.

Shark Bites
  • Oklahoma is 7-0 SU in their past seven games following a loss.
  • Texas is 6-0 ATS in their past six games.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in Oklahoma’s past five outings.

Oklahoma had their worst outing of the season in their last game when they lost to unranked Kansas State. The Sooners scored just 69 points, their second fewest this year, while hitting a season-low 25 percent from beyond the arc. Despite a poor team performance, Buddy Hield put up respectable numbers with the senior scoring 23 points in the affair.

Texas has earned a reputation as giant killers this season as the Longhorns are 4-2 SU and 5-1 ATS in their six games against ranked opponents. Isaiah Taylor has been a key piece in running Shaka Smart’s offensive scheme as the guard has averaged 15.3 points and 5.1 assists per game this season.
