Podcast: Vegas' View of the Red River Shootout

With the 2011 Red River Shootout between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns just five days away, a good place to start any analysis is the books' point of view. The oddsmakers have installed Oklahoma as a 9.5-point favorite. David Payne, columnist with, checks in with Homerism for a podcast on the vibe out in the desert.

David and I discuss:

  • The oddsmakers' respect for the Sooners.
  • Texas' new blood at quarterback and how that has affected the 'Horns' profile with the books.
  • How the betting is breaking down.
  • Some of the key stats to look at when betting this game.
  • And more.
