Spread: Oklahoma -10 (5dimes)
Total: 73
Kickoff: 12:00 pm ET
Location: Cotton Bowl, Dallas TX.
Television Broadcast: FS1


The Sooners only lost one game in the 2015 regular season, and that was a 24-17 defeat at Texas. They will get a chance to avenge that loss here in the latest edition of the Red River Rivalry in Dallas Saturday. Both teams are 2-2, and neither team has looked sharp defensively. The Sooners though are asked to cover a double-digit spread here at the Cotton Bowl. The opening line was Oklahoma -7, but the money has been pouring in on the Sooners driving the number up as high as 11.5 at some books. The history seems to favor the Longhorns, who have managed to cover the spread in seven of the last 11 meetings. According to Covers.com Consensus Analysis, 68 percent of bettors like the total to go over.  The Sooners scored 52 points at TCU last week, running for 260 yards and five TDs. They also allowed the Horned Frogs to score 46 points on over 500 yards of total offense. Texas has given up a total of 99 points the last two weeks.

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
