    Completely reasonable line. It would have been two Tds I'd they were healthy. But we're still going to win. So suck it Vegas.


    I'm kind of a big deal!

    Less than I thought. I was thinking Texas -10-14.

    Re: Texas Opens as 9 Point Favorite

    I guessed 9.5 with the line moving to 11 before kickoff.

    It actually opened at Texas -7.5 but went to -9 immediately. I agree with Adam that it'll likely be at least 11 by kickoff.

    Wouldn't touch the game. Winning wouldn't surprise me and losing by four TDs wouldn't surprise. Our team is too tough to figure out right now.

    I would feel pretty comfortable betting serious money on the over with Texas.

    I'm not sure. If it ends up being 9.5 I would take the over.

    I think you may be confused...

    The over/under is total points scored. The 9.5 is the line. You're saying that Texas will win by more than 9. When people say "give me the over", they typically mean they want the over in total points scored.
