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.

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.
