In the Big 12 tournament on Thursday March 14, 2019 - #17 Kansas plays Texas. The point spread currently has Kansas favored by -2.5 and the total (Over/under) is 137. As of the time of me writing this article, 78% of the betting public at the sportsbook we contacted in on Kansas -2.5

Kansas is having a good year. Not as good as recent years but good enough. They are 25-8 straight up but a lackluster 12-18 ATS. They score about 75 PPG and allow 70 PPG.

Texas is having a bad year. They are just 16-15 SU and 15-16 ATS. They score 71 PPG and allow 67 PPG. Texas is coming off losses to Texas Tech and TCU. Their last last win was 11 days ago when they beat Iowa State 86-69.

Here are some interesting trends for this game:

In all neutral court games: 3-0
As a neutral court favorite or pick: 3-0

In all neutral court games: 1-2
As an underdog: 7-3
Texas is 3-0 against the spread (ATS) in its last three games against Kansas

Kansas Junior forward Dedric Lawson is coming off a great game against Baylor in which he scored 23 points nabbed 14 rebounds. I look for him to continue his excellent play and keep Kansas ahead in this game. But it could be a close one so I am backing off the side and instead am taking the OVER in the total. I can see this game possibly going into overtime which would make the over a sure bet.
