Texas is considered a real Big 12 contender this season with first-year head coach Chris Beard and a host of transferable talent from around the country, but we’ve yet to see the consistency needed to won the regular season title. Take last week when the Longhorns beat Kansas at home, but were beaten by a short-sleeved Baylor team in Waco on Saturday in their next game.
Now, the team is still on the road as they look to cement a conference sweep over Oklahoma, who are trying to maintain their NCAA Tournament hopes. The Sooners lost a tough game to Kansas in first place along the way, but will look to claim a signature win at home on Tuesday night.
Here are the odds for the match between the Big 12 from WynnBET Sportsbook:
Total: 124.5 (Above -110/Below -110)
Once again, we find ourselves on the Longhorns, who should have made a nice comeback after struggling with a fitness Baylor team over the weekend.
While Longhorn continues to look for consistency, they won’t be hit at the lows, which led to problems against the aforementioned Seton Hall and Baylor Bears last weekend. OU plays a more spread-out brand of basketball with the top 100 three-pointers and stands in the middle of the group in the Big 12 game with offensive rebounding rates.
What’s more, the Sooners ranks 20th in the country in terms of percentage of sales, something Texas thrives on, churning out loose balls with the top 10 in the country. The Sooners’ offensive construction will allow Chris Beard to plan a solid defensive play as he did last month in Austin when the Longhorns won 66-52.
Oklahoma held up against Kansas on the road this past weekend, but UT were much better defensively and should have beaten Tanner Groves and the Sooners’ attacks enough to secure a road win.
PICK: Texas ML -120, play to -125
