2021 Texas Longhorns Football Betting Predictions

June 14, 2021

2021 Texas Longhorns Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

After a successful 7-3 season the new look Longhorns will attempt to continue upon the momentum they built last season. With former quarterback, Sam Ehlinger headed to the NFL and new coach Steve Sarkisian taking over, we can definitely expect a different Longhorns team.

My preseason best bet is Texas under 8 wins -139. Texas is gonna be a good team over the next couple of years but facing four preseason top-25 opponents in ULL, OU, ISU, and OKST is gonna be really tough. Beyond that, they also face WVU, TCU, and ARK in challenging road games. I’m excited for the combination of young quarterback Casey Thompson and new coach Steve Sarkisian but It should take them a little bit to develop this new system.

Preseason Best Bet: Under 8 wins -139

Texas Odds to win 2021 Big 12 Championship

Yes +600

I actually do believe this Texas team does have the upside necessary to cause some upsets, unfortunately, this number isn’t quite worth it. Most of this rests on young quarterback Casey Thompson’s shoulders but if he can pick up where he left off last season and really absorb this new playbook then he could be successful. Texas has some defensive holes I’m worried about, especially in some of the higher scoring games they’re gonna have to win this season. Texas is a team I’m gonna watch closely but these odds reflect Texas’s huge media outreach rather than the true odds.

Texas Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +5000

Texas can undoubtedly cause some havoc this season but I’m not sure they can string together the consistency to legitimacy contend this season. They are a super intriguing team but it takes longer than an offseason to build a dynasty and that should show this season. This team already has some star players and I could see even more developing by the end of the season, Texas fans have plenty to look forward to.

Texas 2021 Heisman Contenders & Odds

Bijan Robinson +2000

Casey Thompson +5000

Robinson is one of those rare talents where everybody in the stadium knows he’s going to get the ball and he still makes a play. This comes down to the fact that it’s simply much harder for running backs to win the Heisman. I have nothing negative to say about him, I’m just not willing to bet a running back at +2000 when there are so many quarterbacks that will lap him in national media attention.

I like Thompson’s upside but I’m not willing to make this leap quite yet. After last year’s impressive performance coming in for an injured Elhinger, he put up monster numbers giving Longhorns fans plenty to be excited about. I’m ready to be impressed but learning a new playbook under a completely new system won’t be easy. I’m impressed with the athletic profile but not currently interested in him at this price.
