Ollie Gordon II Will Be Involved in the Passing Game
Ollie Gordon II’s rushing yards prop scares me a bit at 97.5 rushing yards. Texas has the No. 2 ranked rushing defense in the country.
As a counter, look for Gordon to be involved in the passing game to help Alan Bowman get the ball out quickly avoiding the Longhorns vaunted pass rush. Gordon has 16 or more receiving yards in four of the last five contests.
This is also the best Vegas odds we have seen for Gordon to get into the end zone. Even if Gordon’s rushing yards take a hit, it would be a major upset if the star does not score a touchdown. Gordon has a TD in seven of the last eight contests.

Oklahoma State Keeps Leaning on Brennan Presley
Wide receiver Brennan Presley continues to see his usage go up in the Pokes offense. If Oklahoma State is going to have success, it is likely to come through the air.
“Every time he touches the ball, something can happen… in most cases, he makes you look good.”

Quinn Ewers Leans on Xavier Worthy
The Longhorns are having success despite Quinn Ewers not putting up crazy numbers. Xavier Worthy has been a consistent target for Ewers.
The wideout is battling an injury but is expected to play in Arlington. Given the injury, Worthy’s touchdown prop is the safest bet at the sportsbook.

Gordon To Outrush CJ Baxter
We should have tempered expectations about Gordon’s numbers against the best defense the running back has faced. That said, look for Gordon to top CJ Baxter’s rushing yards in the Big 12 championship.
With Jonathon Brooks out for the season, the Longhorns have leaned on Baxter but have also utilized a number of rushers. Gordon is going to get almost all of Oklahoma State’s carries.
