Kansas is coming off a road loss at Kentucky and has not been good on the road this season. They could drop a second straight.
Texas has talent but consistency seems to always be a problem for these guys. They already might have too many losses for a Tournament bid.
There is definitely no shame in losing at Kentucky. Kansas is just 1-4 in true road games though and it is obvious this team is struggling with depth this season.
That puts a lot of pressure on a starting five that is good but not complete. Dedric Lawson went for 20 and 15 against Kentucky but they needed him on the floor for 39 minutes.
Quentin Grimes might be a lottery pick in the spring but he has not really played like one as of yet. He had 13 against UK but was a zero the game before against Iowa State.
With Udoka Azubuike on the sidelines Kansas is playing really small right now. Lawson has length but not bulk so they are bringing along freshman David McCormack.
The Longhorns did not look good in their matchup in the SEC/B12 series. They got smoked by Georgia and they gave up 98 points. Normally their defense is really good.
They did play Kansas just a couple of weeks ago though and lost by just a bucket on the road. That too was another game where the defense was not what they want it to be.
In that one frosh Jaxson Hayes was not much of a factor due to fouls. For most of the season he has been doing a strong Mo Bamba impression in every facet of the game.
With no presence inside on the other end the Longhorns need to work the ball inside more to get easy shots and pick up fouls. They only shot 7 in the loss (100% made).
CBB Betting Trends:
- Under is 34-16-1 in KU last 51 road games.
- Under is 14-3 in TEX last 17 Tue. games.
- Road team is 9-0 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
Free Kansas Jayhawks vs. Texas Longhorns NCAAB Prediction:
Kansas is probably still the favourite here based on brand alone but they are not dominating in league play like you would expect.
Texas plays good defense and if they can keep the tempo down here they can emerge with a win, or at least a cover.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Texas ATS
Look for the Longhorns to get the game they want, a little out of sorts, and to use some depth to get the win at home.
