No Hepa and no Roach today for Texas, which could really stall the Horns offense. The side at Oklahoma -4 feels creepy but I will lean laying the points with OU for something small. The better bet is probably on the under 134. Neither team scores a ton and Horns without their leading scorer today.
Texas took care of business at home the first time these teams met, winning 7572 behind 23 points from Kerwin Roach, and 15 apiece from Matt Coleman, Jaxson Hayes and Dylan Osetkowski. (Roach was suspended this week for a violation of team rules and will miss Saturdays game.) This is a big game with both teams on the bubble, though its likely more important to Oklahoma. Not only is it at home, but the Sooners dont have a set of wins that comes anywhere close to matching the Longhorns trio of North Carolina, Purdue and Kansas. This game may be in Norman, but its still a tough spot for Oklahoma. The Sooners best bet is to try to get out in transition and get ahead of a Texas defense that thrives on forcing teams to run half-court offense. If they can do that, theyll have a good chance of protecting their home floor and getting a much-needed win over a fellow bubble team.
Covers community free betting prediction for Oklahoma Sooners (55% consensus). If Oklahoma hopes to avoid missing the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years, Saturdays home contest against Texas may be a critical turning point in its quest. The Sooners snapped their five-game losing streak with a 71-62 road triumph against TCU last Saturday, and theyll return to Norman looking to claim their first conference victory since defeating the Horned Frogs on Jan. 12... http://bit.ly/2B1uuwi
