The Red River Showdown never disappoints, and it's highly unlikely that will change in 2020. In fact, there's already a significant amount of hype surrounding this year's matchup between Oklahoma and Texas.

Oklahoma was upset by Texas during the 2018 regular season, but Lincoln Riley's squad responded with a win in the Big 12 Championship. The Sooners were also victorious against the Longhorns this past season.

Although we're still several months away from these two programs facing off at the Cotton Bowl Stadium, the betting line has been released.

BetOnline.ag released a plethora of betting lines for the top matchups on the schedule for 2020. Right now, the Sooners are 3.5-point favorites over the Longhorns.

It's not surprising to see Oklahoma favored over Texas.

That being said, the Sooners have plenty of issue to figure out for next season. Most importantly, the coaching staff has to figure out who will be the starting quarterback: Spencer Rattler or Tanner Mordecai?

Oklahoma also has to replace a few key playmakers that declared for the NFL Draft, such as CeeDee Lamb and Kenneth Murray.

Texas, on the other hand, will still have Sam Ehlinger under center. However, he won't have his top weapons from last season in Collin Johnson and Devin Duvernay.

Do you think Oklahoma should be favored against Texas?
