Kansas vs. Texas Prediction

After a great start to the year, Kansas has lost three of its last five games. Losses to Iowa State, Baylor, and TCU were unexpected, but those are three great teams. Texas on the other hand has been taking care of business, hitting their best stride of the season. The Longhorns are coming off a huge win at Kansas State, a win that seemed nearly impossible with how good the Wildcats have been at home. Will Texas stay hot and pull off another upset on the road or will Kansas get back on track?

Bill Self and the Jayhawks at home are nearly impossible to defeat. I fully expect Jalen Wilson and Dajuan Harris Jr. to take over this game and get a much-needed win on their home court. Gradey Dick has shot the three-ball extremely well at home. Can Wilson and Harris drive to the hoop and draw perimeter defenders leaving Dick open from three? Texas ranks outside the top 100 in defending the three-ball this season. Expect the Jawkawks to have plenty of three-point opportunities and to execute on their home court tonight.

Texas has some great defensive performances under their belt this year but overall has been inconsistent and unreliable. Kansas will look to speed up their opponent and score in transition often. If Kansas gets out to a lead early or can wear their opponent down they can get the win. Plus we’ve seen the Longhorns give up at times when opponents do that to them. Without their head coach, it’s been hard for the Longhorns to crawl back into games once they go down early. If Bill Self loses to an interim head coach on his home court in the same year he lost to rival Kansas State at home, I will be thoroughly shocked. Crazier things have happened but I’m willing to bet my money that it doesn’t.

Bookmakers opened the market at Kansas -3. Since then the Jayhawks have moved to a -4.5 favorite. Although Kansas is public, bringing in around 60% of bets and handle per VSIN, the line has moved according which is a great sign. I’d be concerned if Kansas was the public side and the line didn’t move. Sharps have been hammering the Jayhawks early and often and I’ll be right there with ‘em.

We know how explosive the Jawhawks’ offense can be at times, more than capable of ripping off multiple runs against any opponent. Expect plenty of runs led by Kansas’ backcourt in this one, Texas will have no answer for their star-studded lineup.
