UPDATE 6:30 P.M. ET SATURDAY: BetMGM opened Missouri -10.5, moved to -11 and -11.5 Wednesday. The Tigers are now -11.5 (-115) on two-way action, with 52% of bets on Mizzou/55% of money on Florida.

That's BetMGM's overall nationwide picture. At BetMGM Nevada, Scott Shelton said the book took two huge Missouri -11.5 plays, for $330,000 and $110,000.

"It's one of the biggest games of the day for us now. All the F-1 high rollers are in town," Shelton said, alluding to tonight's Las Vegas Grand Prix under the lights on the Strip.

The total dropped from 59.5 to 57.5 Thursday and remains 57.5 tonight. For BetMGM nationwide, tickets and money are 4/1 on the Over, contrary to the move.

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET THURSDAY: This has become a compelling game, with multiple sportsbooks reporting sharp action on home underdog Iowa State. PointsBet opened Texas -7.5 and climbed to -8.5 Monday afternoon. But within a few hours, the spread returned to Longhorns -7.5 (-115).

Since then, Texas has mostly been at various iterations of -7.5, save for a few hours Tuesday at -8/-8 (-105). It's now Longhorns -7.5 flat, with the Cyclines attracting 68% of early tickets and a massive 96% of early cash.

The total went from 47.5 to 48 and back to 47.5, all on Monday, then fell to 47 Tuesday. The Over is drawing 73% of tickets and practically all the money so far.

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET MONDAY: Texas (9-1 SU/4-6 ATS) was on cruise control at halftime against TCU, holding a 26-6 lead. Ultimately, the Lonhorns barely held on for a 29-26 Week 11 victory, failing to cash as 13-point road favorites.

Iowa State (6-4 SU and ATS) went to BYU as a 7.5-point favorite and exited with a blowout 45-13 victory. The Cyclones are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games.

Texas is already down a point to -8 in TwinSpires' college football odds Week 12 market. The Longhorns are netting 58% of early spread tickets, but 60% of early spread cash is on the Cyclones.

"It's shaping up to be a Pros vs. Joes battle. The pros are on Iowa State," Lucas said.

The total inched from 48 to 48.5, with tickets and money in the 2/1 range on the Over.
