  • Opening point spread: Texas -5.5
  • Opening moneyline: Texas -200/Oklahoma +165
  • Opening total: Over/Under 59 points scored
  • Time: Noon ET Saturday (ABC)

UPDATE 11:15 A.M. ET SATURDAY: Under an hour before kickoff, Texas is down to a 4.5-point favorite at BetMGM. The Longhorns opened -4.5 and climbed to -6.5 by Tuesday. But the line went to Texas -5.5 Thursday, then dropped to -4.5 this morning.

All that said, spread tickets and money are in the 2.5/1 range on Texas. And while 54% of moneyline bets are on Oklahoma, 63% of moneyline cash is on the Longhorns.

BetMGM trader Seamus Magee said the book needs Oklahoma to pull the outright upset.

The total opened at 59.5, got to 61 Friday, backed up to 60.5, then this morning went to 61.5. Tickets are 2/1 and money 3/1 on the Over at BetMGM.

UPDATE 4:30 P.M. ET THURSDAY: This number is on the way down today. Texas dropped from -6.5 to -6, -5.5 and now -5 at PointsBet, a Fanatics Experience. That's after the Longhorns opened -5 and got to -6.5 early in the week.

Spread ticket count is beyond 2/1 Texas, but spread money is running almost even, with a modest lean toward Oklahoma.

The total opened at 58.5 (Under -115), peaked at 60.5 and is now 60 (Over -115). Ticket count is 5/1 on the Over, but money is running dead even at PointsBet.

UPDATE 3 P.M. ET MONDAY: Texas (5-0 SU and ATS) hasn't won a game by less than 10 points all season, including at Alabama in Week 2. That's been boon for point-spread bettors thus far.

In Week 5 against No. 24 Kansas, the Longhorns pulled away in the second half for a 40-14 victory laying 15.5 points at home.

Oklahoma has quietly matched Texas, also going 5-0 SU and ATS with nothing but double-digit wins. The Sooners boat-raced Iowa State 50-20 in Week 5, cashing as 19.5-point favorites.

TwinSpires Sportsbook opened Texas -5.5 and already went through -6 on the way to -6.5. Oklahoma is getting 54% of spread tickets, but 68% of spread cash is on the Longhorns.

"Early sharp play on Texas," Twinspires director of retail sports Zachary Lucas said.

The total crept from 59 to 59.5, with early tickets 2.5/1 and early money 4/1 on the Over.

"The public loves the Over. With two great offenses, we aren't expecting to see much Under money," Lucas said

Last season, which was Oklahoma's worst this century (6-7 SU), Texas pounded the Sooners 49-0. Per usual, this is a neutral-site game played at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

The winner Saturday takes control of the Big 12 and likely makes an impact on College Football Playoff odds, as well.
