Among them is the annual Red River Rivalry between the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners, who are listed as 10.5-point favorites on the college football lines. This despite the fact that Oklahoma has failed to cover the spread in the past three meetings, going 1-2 straight up as double-digit chalk each time.
The Longhorns and Sooners are both off to disappointing starts at 2-2, making this a critical game for each of them. Texas has failed to cover the spread in five of its last seven games during the month of October, something that will need to change if head coach Charlie Strong is truly going to turn the program around.
Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops has led his team to eight straight wins (7-1 against the spread) versus Big 12 foes since losing to the Longhorns last year.
Another key matchup will take place in the SEC when the LSU Tigers (3-2) visit the Florida Gators (4-1). That game is off the board at most sportsbooks due to the questionable status of LSU running back Leonard Fournette (ankle) and Florida quarterback Luke Del Rio (knee).
The Tigers will be playing their second game without former head coach Les Miles following a 42-7 rout of the Missouri Tigers as 12-point home favorites last week. They have won three in a row against the Gators SU and ATS according to the OddsShark College Football Database.
