Texas Longhorns 2023 Season Preview

The Texas Longhorns' 2023 football season is shaping up to be an exciting one with high expectations. Under the leadership of head coach Steve Sarkisian, who is entering his third year at the helm, the Longhorns are poised to make a strong impact in their last year of the Big 12 conference.

The Longhorns' offense in 2023 will feature several key returning starters, including standout quarterback Quinn Ewers. Ewers, who showed promise despite some ups and downs in the previous year, is expected to continue his development under the guidance of Coach Sarkisian. He will have a deep and talented group of wide receivers to target, led by junior Xavier Worthy and senior Jordan Whittington. Additionally, the offense will benefit from the return of All-Big 12 tight end Ja'Tavion Sanders. The Longhorns lost their most prolific player from a year ago in Bijan Robinson. Texas had a strong offensive season in 2022, averaging 34.5 PPG, making them the 20th best offense in the country.

Defensively, the Longhorns are looking to build on their progress from the previous year. The defensive line, which played a role in leading the nation in quarterback pressures in 2022, returns key contributors such as T'Vondre Sweat and Byron Murphy II. The linebacker corps features standout senior middle linebacker Jaylan Ford, who had an impressive 2022 season, and senior nickel Jahdae Barron. The secondary will benefit from the return of senior safety Jerrin Thompson and senior cornerback Ryan Watts, along with potential contributions from transfers Jalen Catalon and Gavin Holmes. Texas kept opponents to 21.6 points per game in 2022, giving them the 21st best defense in the country a season ago.

The Longhorns have a challenging schedule that includes an early matchup against Alabama, but Hook 'Em Horns are still seen as the clear favorite to win the Big 12 at +100 consensus odds.

Texas Longhorns Point Spreads

College football bettors have to know the details on the point spread bet, which is the single most popular type of wager in college football. Point spreads refer to the margin of victory that a favored team must overcome and the underdog must strive to maintain. After a 8-5 season against the spread (ATS) in 2020, Longhorns fans will be hoping for a slightly better 2023.

This example of a point spread should make things clear:

  • Oklahoma Sooners (+2.5)
  • Texas Longhorns (-2.5)

In the hypothetical game above, Texas is the favored team, as noted by the minus sign (-) next to its point spread; Oklahoma is the underdog, as noted by the plus sign (+). As 2.5-point favorites, Texas bettors would need to see the Longhorns win by three points or more for their bet to cash. Bets on Oklahoma would be winners if the Sooners won the game outright or lost by just a point or two.

Longhorns Moneylines

For bettors who don’t want the hassle of rooting for a team to win by a certain number, moneyline bets are straight-up wagers on which team will win the game. Like point spreads, the favorite is denoted by a minus sign (-) and the underdog a plus (+).

Reusing our example from earlier:

  • Oklahoma Sooners +110
  • Texas Longhorns -130

The numbers next to the +/- signs are the odds expressed in American format, which is best read as a math question where $100 is the answer. As -130 favorites, a bet on the Longhorns would require a $130 risk to win $100. As +110 underdogs, a $100 bet on the Sooners would win $110 if Oklahoma was to win.

Texas Longhorns Over/Unders aka Totals

Betting on the result of the game or margin of victory aren’t the only ways to bet on Texas football games: Betting the over/under, sometimes called a total, is a wager on the combined number of points the two teams will score.

Let's say oddsmakers set the total for the Red River Rivalry game at 66 points. Bettors who took the over would need to see 67 or more points to cash their tickets, whereas those who bet the under would want 65 points or fewer. If the two teams scored a total of 66 points exactly, all bets would be refunded.

Texas hit the over on 46.2% of their games in 2022.

TX Longhorns Props

Bets that don’t fall neatly into the buckets mentioned above — moneylines, point spreads, and totals — are often referred to as prop bets.

Prop bets can mostly be split into two categories. Player props are bets on a specific player's statistical output throughout the game. Examples of common player props would be: RB Bijan Robinson to finish with over or under a certain amount of rushing yards, QB Casey Thompson to throw for a touchdown, or a bet on WRs Troy Omeire and Joshua Moore to combine for a certain number of receiving yards.

Other prop bets are most often made on specific events throughout the game. Common examples include betting on which team will reach 21 points first, wagering on whether the first kickoff of the game will be a touchback, or taking heads or tails on the opening coin toss. Since props on offer vary from book to book, make sure to read The Action Network's sportsbook reviews to find the shop that’s right for you.

Texas Longhorns Futures

If you’re someone who thinks this is the year Texas is Back with a capital "B," why not place a future bet on them to win the Big 12?

Futures are a type of bet in which the outcome won’t be determined until after the season. Futures can be bets on a team’s overall performance throughout the season — for example, betting the Longhorns to go over their season win total or to qualify for the College Football Playoff.

But futures can also be bet on a player’s performance, both in terms of player props — betting Ewers to throw for over his passing touchdowns total, for example — and end-of-season awards, like winning the Maxwell or Heisman award.

The odds sportsbooks use for futures can change at the drop of a hat, so stay up to date with the latest news and shop for the best line with the Action Network app.
