Kansas Vs. Texas Preview

We’re getting closer and closer to conference tournaments, selection Sunday, and ultimately March Madness. But before that takes place, there are still plenty of marquee games on the calendar to look out for. One of those games takes place tonight, with the 16th ranked Texas Longhorns hosting the 19th ranked Kansas Jayhawks.

Texas comes sputtering into this game with two wins in their last six games, while the Jayhawks have found their groove again after stringing together a five-game winning streak. Kansas not only covered the spread in each of those games, but they also won by double digits, whereas the Longhorns have covered just two of their last 10 games.

The Longhorns are a three-point favorite in this matchup, and this sets up as a classic revenge spot for the Jayhawks after they lost 84-59 to the Longhorns back in January.

Texas has just two wins in their last 10 meetings with Kansas, and this series is one that bettors should proceed with caution when backing the home team as they’re just 2-12 against the spread in this spot.

When you factor in both teams’ recent form, the active trends for this game, and a possible revenge spot, it’s hard to go anywhere near the Longhorns in this matchup.
