Against the Spread Pick
The Kansas Jayhawks and Texas Longhorns will wrap up their regular-season series on Monday. Their previous meeting came in Texas, where the Jayhawks prevailed 66-57 on Jan. 18. The Longhorns led by five at halftime before the visitors restored order to things by dominating the second half in the form of a 40-26 margin. Devon Dotson delivered 21 points in that contest and he also scored 21 during Saturday’s victory over Texas Tech. Texas is 5-6 since a 9-1 start to the season, with five losses by double-digits. The Longhorns are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 overall and 2-7 ATS in their last nine against opponents with winning records. Kansas is 11-5 ATS in its last 16 overall and 5-0 ATS in its last five following an ATS loss. It is also worth noting that the favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings between the two teams. Take the JAYHAWKS.
Over Under Pick
Texas has scored no more than 67 points in all of its losses and twice it has been held to fewer than 50. Nobody on the squad is averaging more than 12.3 ppg (Matt Coleman III). The under is 5-1 in the Longhorns’ last six against opponents with winning percentages over .600. It is also 8-3 in the Jayhawks’ last 11 overall and 7-2 in their last nine against opponents with winning percentages over .600. Look for this one to stay UNDER the total.
