Texas at Baylor Preview & Picks

Texas are tipped to cover in a road win.

The Longhorns have made a strong start to the season, while Baylor have a poor recent spread record against ranked teams.

  • Texas covered and beat #3 Alabama by 10 points in their last road game
  • Baylor are 1-5-0 ATS in their last 6 games against ranked teams
  • The Under has hit in both of Texas’ games as a betting favorite this season
  • The Under has cashed in both of Baylor’s previous 2 games

Head To Head

  • Texas lead the all-time series 78-28-5
  • Texas won 38-27 when the teams last met in November 2022

Texas Form

Texas head back out on the road looking to improve to 4-0 in their first Big 12 game of the season.

The Longhorns opened the season with a comfortable 37-10 victory over Rice that saw them pull away with 21 points in the third quarter.

They topped that performance in Week 2, sending shockwaves through College Football.

Ranked #11 at the time, Texas visited #3 Alabama for their second game of the season, and put up 21 points in the fourth quarter to stun the Crimson Tide, 34-24.

The Longhorns backed that up last weekend as they went on a 21-point surge in the fourth quarter to finally see off Wyoming, 31-10.

Baylor Form

Baylor come into their first Big 12 matchup of 2023 looking to follow up their first win of the season.

The Bears opened the campaign at home to Texas State and suffered a surprise 42-31 defeat to a team they had been favoured to beat by at least 27 points.

That was not the ideal preparations for a meeting with #12 Utah a week later, but they did produce an improved showing.

Baylor led 13-3 late in the third quarter of that game, but could not fend off the Utes and gave up 17 unanswered points to lose 20-13.

The Bears did finally get off the mark last weekend though, beating LIU 30-7 as they scored a touchdown in each quarter.

Verdict

Texas have made an excellent start to the season and their best performance came on the road.

They now face a Baylor team who have rarely covered against ranked teams in recent times, so we are riding the Longhorns in this one.
