Texas was seen as a true Big 12 contender this season with first year head coach Chris Beard and an influx of transfer talent from across the country, but we have yet to see the consistency that is necessary to win the regular season title. Take last week when the Longhorns beat Kansas at home, but were bludgeoned by a short handed Baylor team in Waco on Saturday in their next game.

Now, the team remains on the road as they look to solidify a conference sweep over Oklahoma, who is trying to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive. The Sooners lost a tough one against first place Kansas on the road, but will look to get a signature win at home on Tuesday night.

Here are the odds for the Big 12 matchup from WynnBET Sportsbook:

Texas vs. Oklahoma Odds, Spread and Total


  • Texas: -1 (-110)
  • Oklahoma: +1 (-110)


  • Texas: -120
  • Oklahoma: +100

Total: 124.5 (Over -110/Under -110)

Texas vs. Oklahoma Prediction and Pick

From this afternoon's best bets column:

Once again, we find ourselves on the Longhorns, who should have a nice bounce back effort after struggling against a physical Baylor team over the weekend.

While the Longhorns continue to look for consistency, they won't be attacked down low, which has led to issues against the likes of Seton Hall and the aforementioned Baylor Bears this past weekend. OU plays a more spread out brand of basketball with a top 100 three-point rate and is middle of the pack in Big 12 play in offensive rebounding rate.

Further, the Sooners are bottom 20 in the country in turnover percentage, something Texas thrives out, generating loose balls at a top 10 rate in the country. The Sooners offensive construction should allow Chris Beard to scheme up a strong defensive game plan like he did last month in Austin when the Longhorns won 66-52.

Oklahoma stood tall against Kansas on the road over the weekend, but UT is a much better defense and should shut down Tanner Groves and the Sooners offense enough to get a road victory.

PICK: Texas ML -120, play to -125
