Texas Bowl College Football Betting Odds with Pick - Texas Longhorns vs Arkansas Razorbacks

Texas Longhorns


Arkansas Razorbacks
Monday, December 29, 2014 9:00 PM ET
NRG Stadium

Betting favorites are only 3-3 SU and 2-4 ATS in the last six Texas Bowls. Last year favored Minnesota lost the Texas Bowl outright to Syracuse. That trend might not bode well for 6-6 Arkansas, which is a short favorite over 6-6 Texas for the ninth edition of the Texas Bowl, to be played at the place they now call NRG Stadium in Houston.

The Razorbacks, in their second season under head coach Bret Bielema, are playing in their first bowl in three seasons. But the Hogs haven't had much luck in the postseason recently, going 3-6 SU, 2-7 ATS in their last nine bowl appearances. The Longhorns, meanwhile, are playing in a bowl for the fourth straight season. And while the Longhorns have won 12 of their last 14 bowls outright, they've gone just 6-8 ATS over that span.
