Tom Herman’s exploits as an underdog are well known. But he’s just 12-20-2 as a favorite, and is now in a tricky spot in Stillwater as expectations for Texas continue to rise.

This line jumped all the way to Texas -3.5 despite our power ratings indicating it should be a pick’em. Is there value on the Cowboys, or will the Longhorns continue their magical season?

Market Moves for Texas-Oklahoma State

By Danny Donahue

Oklahoma State is unsurprisingly the less popular side in this one, but its 38% of bets have accounted for 57% of money wagered. Still, the line is moving toward the Longhorns, who have gone from -1.5 to -3.5 since opening.

As for the total, the under has been the more popular bet, getting two-thirds of total tickets. The 33% of bets on the over have accounted for 66% of dollars, which has moved the number from 59.5 to 62.

Key Injury

By Steve Petrella

Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger is expected to play after spraining his throwing shoulder against Baylor two weeks ago. The trouble is, coach Tom Herman said Ehlinger was still experiencing some soreness as of Wednesday.

Ehlinger has been solid this year with 7.4 yards per attempt and a 65.7% completion rate. If he’s not fully healthy, the Texas offense could be in trouble.
