Kansas Has Strolled Through Big 12

The Big 12 is a murderer's row of teams this season, with the likelihood that it will be the most represented conference in March Madness. Despite the depth of strong teams, the Kansas Jayhawks have been rolling through the conference, as they are 8-0 SU and 7-1 ATS in their past eight games within the Big 12. Kansas does not have an easy task when they host the Texas Longhorns Monday night.

Shark Bites
  • Kansas is 9-1 SU in their past 10 games against Texas.
  • Texas is 10-2 ATS in their past 12 games.
  • The OVER is 13-2 in Texas’ past 15 games as home underdogs.

Kansas has outscored their opponents by 12 points per game during their current nine-game winning streak, which includes victories over West Virginia, Oklahoma and Baylor. Scoring has been done by a committee approach lately for Kansas, but Frank Mason III has been a consistent offensive threat with the junior scoring double-digits in the past seven games.

This will be the fourth consecutive home game against a ranked opponent for Texas, but the Longhorns have become giant killers this season. No team in the nation has more wins against Top 10 opponents this season with Texas knocking off Oklahoma, West Virginia (twice) and Baylor. Isaiah Taylor continues to flourish in Shaka Smart’s system as the junior has averaged 17.5 points and 4.8 assists per game in the past four contests.
