Randy’s Free Pick

The Texas Longhorns are the better team and have the horses to blow the doors off. Oklahoma is a subpar team that’s getting torched all week, but it loses as an underdog by an average of just 5.6 points. This is also a rivalry game where you can usually throw numbers out the window, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence the underdog has covered 20 of the last 28 meetings. Give me the points.
