Big 12 action tips on Monday as the Kansas Jayhawks visit the Texas Longhorns in a battle of nationally-ranked programs. At 8-1, Kansas sits atop their conference leaderboard. Texas is fourth among all Big 12 teams with a 6-4 league record.
Kansas scored a big win on Saturday to further realign itself after recently losing vs. Kentucky. Facing a gut-check, the Jayhawks defensively strangled #8 Baylor 83-59 over the weekend.
KU held the defending national champs to 29% percent shooting overall, and 26% from deep, to stake their claim as the Big 12’s best team. The Jayhawks have knocked off ranked competition these past two weeks, and seek another statement win this Monday against Texas.
Kansas averages 112.5 points per 100 possessions and allows 95.1. Generally an offensive powerhouse, the Jayhawks have stonewalled ranked competition in consecutive outings. KU shoots 49/36/71 and is led by Wooden Award finalist Ochai Agbaji (20.8 Pts, 5.0 Reb, 1.5 Ast).
Remy Martin is listed as out heading into this matchup. Martin has remained sidelined with a knee injury since Feb. 4. His absence hurts Kansas’ perimeter depth.
Texas scored another big victory following a 4-4 stretch that had many questioning the group’s status among national standouts. The No. 23 Longhorns regained their top-25 cred, however, by recently defeating #18 Tennessee and #20 Iowa State.
Last weekend, Texas grounded the Cyclones 63-41. As the nation’s best defensive unit, the Longhorns held ISU to 28 percent shooting overall, and 13 percent from deep.
Marcus Carr added 14 points while helping force Iowa State leading scorer Izaiah Bockington into 5-of-14 shooting. With Brockington muzzled, Texas cruised to another efficient win. Although, beating Kansas would place the Longhorns among elite programs coming down the season’s final stretch.
It’s also definitely worth noting Texas stands 14-1 at home this season, only losing vs. Gonzaga in Nov. on their home floor.
The Longhorns average 106.4 points per 100 possessions and allow 85.7. Texas shoots 45/33/75%. Timmy Allen (11.2 Pts) leads the Longhorns’ scoring effort. One recurring flaw for Texas is its absence of a go-to player during close games. The Lonhorns are 2-5 ATS in their last seven outings.

Free Kansas Jayhawks vs. Texas Longhorns NCAAB Betting Prediction: Under 135
I advise the Under total as the best play for this Big 12 showdown between Kansas and Texas. The Jayhawks have elite offense, but Texas’ defensive prowess and pace from home will dictate matters.
I feel Kansas will add another W to its 5-1 road record on Monday. Though, the Jayhawks’ next SU win won’t come without a fight.
Play the Under as Texas makes this matchup a dog fight in every sense of the word.
