NCAA Over / Under Win Total wagering for Texas Longhorns

Jul 21, 2012 3:00 AM


(Note: GT sports editor Mark Mayer will assess the 35 college football teams on the LVH sports book list of OVER / UNDER win totals leading up to the Aug. 30 season openers. Today: Texas 9).

Texas Longhorns Over / Under 9 wins

Pleading the case:

• The program has hit a dry spell and arch nemesis Oklahoma has been picked the preseason favorite to win the Big 12.

• Teams used to be intimidated going into Austin during the Mack Brown era. No more. West Virginia, Baylor and TCU will be tough.

• Quarterback situation has been dreadful in the years since Vince Young and Colt McCoy. Someone needs to emerge.

• Texas had four players named to preseason All-Big 12 team, but just one (RB Malcolm Brown) on offense.

• The Longhorn Network had a lot to do with Texas A&M leaving the conference. In-state teams get fired up playing Texas.

Prediction: UNDER. A 3-0 start is likely before a brutal 4-game stretch. Texas is capable of at least 9 wins, but under is safe play.
