- Texas and Oklahoma play Saturday at 12 p.m. ET (FOX) in the annual Red River Showdown.
- With lines already available, smart money is already moving the Texas vs. Oklahoma betting odds.
- Using The Action Network's tools, we examine how professionals are betting this game.
Each week, I highlight one of college football’s smallest games that is attracting early attention from professional bettors.
Winning bets on those games pay just the same as cashing from the week’s biggest matchups, and there’s plenty of value to justify jumping on soft lines early.
But this week, smart money is all over one of Saturday’s highest-profile games: the Red River Showdown between Oklahoma and Texas.
At the time of writing, 58% of spread bets are on Texas, which in itself isn’t all that telling. However, it’s how this line has moved and what’s driving the adjustment that bettors should take note of.
