The Texas Longhorns kickoff their 2011 season on Saturday night, looking to rebound from a miserable 2010 campaign. Mack Brown's team will be taking on the Rice Owls, and not surprisingly, the odds greatly favor the Longhorns.
Texas is favored by a whopping 23.5 points on SBG Global and 5Dimes. BoDog has the Longhorns favored by 24.5 points as well, more than a three score margin. Given the uncertainty of college football (see: Baylor vs. TCU or Utah State vs. Auburn), there's no money to be made by betting on the Longhorns, and it's always risky to bet on such a severe underdog to cover when little to nothing is known about them in Week 1.
The over/under is set at 54 on SBG Global, 54.5 on 5Dimes and 55 on BoDog.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. CDT, with televised coverage being found on the Longhorn Network - if you're lucky enough to have your satellite or cable provider carrying it.
