Oklahoma vs Texas Free Pick

Baker Mayfield tries to lead Sooners over LonghornsBig 12 action highlights a full schedule of college football on Saturday when the No. 12 ranked Oklahoma Sooners visit the Texas Longhorns at the Cotton Bowl, in Dallas, Texas. The current line on top sportsbooks has Oklahoma favored by 7.5 points with the over/under point total on 64.5.

Entering this game, Oklahoma on the season is 4-1 straight up and 3-2 against the spread. On the road, the Sooners are 2-0 SU and 1-1 ATS. Texas on the season is 3-2 SU and 3-1-1 ATS. At home, the Longhorns are 2-1 SU and 1-1-1 ATS.

Last week Oklahoma lost at home to Iowa State by 7 points as 31-point chalk. They failed to cover the number by an almost unbelievable 38 points. Texas is coming off two straight wins over Iowa State followed by Kansas State.

With injuries depleting the Sooners defense, that side of the ball gave up 449 yards to the Cyclones including 368 through the air.

Texas has seen its season improve since losing its opener 51-41 to Maryland. The Longhorns are 3-1 since, with the only loss against USC in a very close game. The Longhorns most recent win was a 40-34 victory last week over Kansas State.

Against K-State Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger had 487 yards of total offense with two touchdowns and an interception.

Ehlinger did all he could to help the Longhorns win, but kicker Joshua Rowland missed what would have been a game winning field goal from just 45 yards. The game eventually went to overtime and Texas prevailed.

The running game for Texas has improved gaining 166 yards against K-State and scoring three touchdowns. The Sooners defense will have a hard time stopping the rush but has an ace in the hole in quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield is a Heisman Trophy candidate and his arm and legs have are the motor behind the high scoring Sooners offense. If the Sooners defense keeps Texas from scoring too many points, the Oklahoma offense will do their part in lighting up the scoreboard.

The Sooners play very well on the road. Oklahoma is 22-5 SU and 21-6 ATS in its past 27 road games during the regular season against teams that are above .500.

Oklahoma is 7-2 ATS in its last 9 games played dating back to last season.

Texas is 5-1-1 ATS in its last 7 games against teams with a record above .500.

One of their victories was a huge upset over UCLA, but the Tigers were brought down to earth when pummeled by Central Florida last Saturday 40-13.

Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson threw for six touchdowns versus UCLA, but last week threw three interceptions.

Connecticut quarterback Bryant Shirreffs is one of the few bright spots on the Huskies. The senior signal caller has thrown for over 400 yards against SMU and East Carolina the past two games, but both resulted in losses.

Memphis gave up 603 total yards of offense to UCF last week with 350 yards on the ground. The Tigers need to run the ball on offense more successfully in order to keep opposing offenses off the field, as the defense remains the team’s weak link.

Connecticut is averaging close to 28 points per game, as Shirreffs had 8 touchdown passes to only 2 interceptions. The running game has faltered as Nate Hopkins accumulated 130 yards on the ground against Holy Cross, but has averaged just 31 yards per game since in the Huskies three straight losses.

USC quarterback Sam Darnold has not played as sharp thus far this season as many had expected. In four games, he has thrown seven interceptions, while last season in 10 games as the USC starter he threw just eight.

Texas vs USC Free Pick

Week 3 of college football includes a showdown in southern California when the No. 4 ranked USC Trojans host the Texas Longhorns. The current line on top sportsbooks has USC favored by 15.5 points with the over/under point total on 67.5.

Entering this game, Texas on the season is 1-1 straight up and against the spread, while USC is 2-0 SU and 1-1 ATS. This is the first official road game for Texas, while USC is 2-0 SU and 1-1 at home.

This is the first meeting between the two schools since the Rose Bowl in 2006. USC has won 11 straight games dating back to last season and is coming off an impressive showing last week in its 42-24 win at home over Pac-12 rival Stanford.

The offensive skill positions have come up big for USC with Ronald Jones II the No. 1 running back rushing for a total of 275 yards and 5 touchdowns over the first two games.

Texas gave up 263 yards on the ground to Maryland in its loss to open the season. The Longhorns returned for a 56-0 blowout win last week over San Jose State. Freshman signal caller Sam Ehlinger debuted after starter Shane Buechele was sidelined with a shoulder injury.

Ehlinger made the best of his opportunity with 222 yards passing, one touchdown pass plus 47 yards rushing. The Longhorns hope to mix running with passing and piece together long time consuming drives to keep the potent USC offense on the sidelines.

Last week Chris Warren III rushed for 166 yards and a pair of touchdowns for the Longhorns. Ehlinger is expected to start again this week and his running ability is superior to that of Buechele.

USC must continue to improve its offense under Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback Sam Darnold. The USC signal caller has already thrown four interceptions in only 59 passes thrown. Last season in 366 passes, he was intercepted only 9 times.

However, Darnold will likely be handing off more often than dropping back, as the running attack for USC looks to take advantage of a weak front seven against the run for the Longhorns.

USC’s Jones has rushed for one touchdown or more in nine straight games.

The Longhorns have four non-offensive touchdowns after just two games, while not scoring any all of last season.

Texas is 5-2 ATS in its last 7 games versus opponents from the Pac-12.

USC is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games played at home.
