Texas Longhorns vs. Oakland Golden Grizzlies Preview

Texas (27-7) got a tough draw in the West Region, which has such teams as Ohio State, Kentucky, and Syracuse and to even have a chance to face those teams the Longhorns have to beat an Oakland (25-9) team that won their last 8 games of the season. NCAAB lines has Texas as big 10-point favorites in this game with a total of 154.

In their last games Oakland beat Oral Roberts 90-76 to win the Summit League Conference tournament while Texas lost to Kansas 85-73 in the finals of the Big 12 conference tournament.

These teams were both great betting teams on the season with Oakland at 22-10-1 ATS and Texas at 20-9 ATS.

Even though Oakland is from a smaller conference they did not take the easy route before conference play, as they faced 5 ranked teams, 4 ranked in the top 10, and they lost 4 of those games, but beat Tennessee. Texas was 7-3 against ranked teams this season including snapping Kansas’ 69-game home winning streak when the Jayhawks were the top-ranked team in the nation.

Oakland is led by star 6’11” C Keith Benson (18 ppg 10.1 rpg), who is the 2-time Summit League player of the year and is a legit NBA prospect. G Reggie Hamilton (17.4 ppg) is a solid shooter, who sets the pace for the Golden Grizzlies, who rank 2nd in the nation in scoring. Oakland likes to get out and run and they have a solid inside/outside game with 2 guards and 2 frontcourt players averaging in double figures. Texas is solid on D ranking 21st in the nation in opponents’ points per game.

One big thing the Longhorns have going for them is that they will be facing an Oakland defense, which only ranks 326th out of 345 D1 teams in opponents’ points per game.

Texas has a couple of stars in G/F Jordan Hamilton (18.6 ppg 7.6 rpg) and F Tristan Thompson (13.3 ppg 7.8 rpg). These guys are key, as they have to score and keep Benson and F Will Hudson (7.1 rpg) from dominating the boards.

Texas is an athletic team and they will have to use that athleticism to get back and not allow Oakland to get easy buckets on the fast break.

Texas has tough first round match up, but since they are athletic Oakland will not be able to run around them. Texas will win this game, but it will not be a blowout so Oakland will cover the big 10-point spread.

Betting Trends

Oakland is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog and Texas is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games.
