Sooners would be 6-point favorites over Longhorns


Las Vegas, Nevada (December 1, 2008) – Oklahoma has prevailed over Texas to advance to the Big 12 Championship game. The BCS standings were the deciding factor in this controversial decision.

According to RJ Bell of, Las Vegas agrees: Played on a neutral field today, the Oklahoma Sooners would be approximately a 6-point favorite over the Texas Longhorns.

Oklahoma was a 7-point favorite when they lost to Texas earlier this season on a neutral field.

RJ Bell of said: “Vegas deals in facts, and the betting professionals believe that Oklahoma is clearly the superior team.”

Florida would be favored against any team in the country on a neutral field, and Alabama would be clear underdogs against both Oklahoma and Texas on a neutral field, according to RJ Bell of

The projected point spreads cited were determined after conversations with multiple Las Vegas odds makers, including Vic Salerno, CEO of Leroy’s – operator of the largest number of legal sportsbooks in the United States.
