What was supposed to be the biggest game of the Big 12 season has lost a little luster as Texas has lost four of its last six games since rising to #1 in the country. Kansas was the college basketball betting preseason #1 and they have taken over the top spot in the polls again.

Their 22nd win of the year didn’t come easy on Saturday as they struggled to get past Nebraska 75-64. They may have been looking ahead a little bit to this game on Monday.

Kansas is 2 point favorite at Bovada with total of 153.

Kansas was able to survive against Nebraska thanks to Marcus Morris who scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. In the last eight games he has scored at least 13 points and pulled down at least seven rebounds. “I just tried to put myself in the best position to score.

I feel like we came out really strong, then we started to let up. I was just trying to go hard. The other team isn’t looking for me,” Morris said, “They’re looking for Cole (Aldrich) because he’s such an effective player. They’re falling asleep, (while) I’m trying to get around them and get the rebounds.”

There is no question that Kansas was looking to Monday’s big game against Texas. “I expect it to be a hostile place with a good crowd. They’re still a top 10 team. We’re going to go down there and it’s going to be a dog fight. There is no way we can let Texas get offensive rebounds, or we will not come out the victor.”

Morris said, “Everybody has to go to the glass and every rebound is going to be tough. The strongest man is going to get it. This is a big game, but we never look past any opponent.”

Texas is coming off an 80-71 loss at Oklahoma on Saturday. The Longhorns are reeling but they are at home and they should come out with a great performance on Monday. One of the main problems for Texas has been abysmal free throw shooting. They were 10 of 27 in the loss to Oklahoma.

Kansas has not done well recently on the road vs. the college basketball odds. The Jayhawks are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 road games.

Texas has played well on Monday’s but that is about the only positive trend they have for this game. The Longhorns are 23-9 ATS in their last 32 Monday games. The Longhorns are 6-21-1 ATS in their last 28 vs. the Big 12. The Longhorns are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games.
