So my hot streak came to an end on Friday as the Bonnies lost by 10 to Richmond and failed to cover. However, it was a great weekend, going 3-2 (+1.63) on Saturday and 8-2 (+6.05u) on Sunday! Let’s keep the train rolling today.
Kansas (#8) +1.5 over Texas (#14)
There has been some line movement overnight, as I was able to get this spread late last night but woke up to KU being favored by a point. The +1.5 is great insurance to have, but still feel comfortable at Kansas -1 of course if that’s what you can get it at.
Kansas 19-3 (8-1) is coming off a thrashing of Baylor (#6) where they beat the Bears by 24 points at Allen Fieldhouse, whereas Texas 17-6 (6-4) handily took down Iowa State (#30) after a disappointing double digit loss to Texas Tech (#11). KU has looked like a top 5 team the past two games after their disappointing performance against Kentucky, and I’m not sensing a letdown from a Bill Self coached team playing another top 25 team that still has their eyes set on the Big 12 crown, which Kansas currently leads over 4th place Texas by 2.5 games.
While Texas is a solid team and can definitely make some noise in March, do they do anything better than KU? Not particularly. Kansas is 7th in the nation in field goal percentage (49.2%) while Texas is 97th (45.6%). KU shoots the 3 better and more efficiently, should have no problem dominating the glass (50th in the country while Texas is 247th). As long as Kansas can keep their turnovers down and eliminate as many self inflicted errors as possible, I see them rolling into Austin and coming out with another big win on Big Monday.
