1/29/11 Big XII Basketball Play of the Day

The Texas Longhorns

Many a college basketball expert missed the boat that week when a determined Texas Longhorn basketball team went into Allen Fieldhouse and took down the undefeated Jayhawks.

I'm not going to sleep on Texas this week.  They play a ranked Missouri team at home, but to say a few trends are going Texas' way is an understatement.

Look at this :

  • Longhorns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite.
  • Longhorns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win.
  • Longhorns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win.
  • Longhorns are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • Longhorns are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big 12.
  • Longhorns are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600
  •  

    Let's just take Texas and give the 7 to Missouri.  And while we are at it, the total is sitting at 145.5.  Let's get crazy and take the OVER.

    This game can be found on ESPNU tonight at 8 eastern time.
