Betting on the Kansas Jayhawks (+1.5)
Record: 19-3 Overall/8-1 Conference
The Jayhawks collected yet another big win Saturday, as they downed the Baylor Bears at home, 83-59. The show of dominance against a national power – a defending national champion to be more precise – speaks a lot about how powerful Kansas is this season. The Jayhawks have completely moved on from the early-season upset loss to the Dayton Flyers, losing just twice ever since, with those setbacks against elite squads in the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Kentucky Wildcats. Ochai Agbaji and Christian Braun each scored 18 points and combined for 19 rebounds for Kansas in the win over Baylor. As a team, the Jayhawks held the Bears to only 29.6 percent shooting from the field. The Jayhawks’ offense is a handful for Big 12 teams. So far in conference play, Kansas is No. 1 with a 107.1 offensive adjusted efficiency and also tops in effective field goal percentage (53.21%).
Kansas is 5-4-1 against the spread in its last games away from Lawrence.
Betting on the Texas Longhorns (-1.5)
Record: 17-6 Overall/6-4 Conference
Texas got back on track after getting ambushed in Lubbock in a 77-64 road loss to the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Feb. 1, as the Longhorns beat the Iowa State Cyclones at home last Saturday, 63-41. Chris Bear’s boys made life hell for the Cyclones’ offense. Iowa State shot just 28.6 percent from the field and hit only 2 of their 15 3-point attempts. That’s to be expected of Texas opponents. The Longhorns have arguably the best defense in the Big 12, where they are second in adjusted defensive efficiency and third in opponents’ effective field goal percentage (45.3%). With a terrific defense, the Longhorns have been able to go 17-0 this season in games in which they held the opposition to fewer than 60 points. In Big 12 play, Texas has already limited opposing teams to no more than 52 points five times.
The Under is 3-0 in Texas’ last three games as the home team.
Texas wins, 68-67.
