Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made
Texas 26.5-point home favorites over
Kansas on Saturday night. The over/under total for this game has been established at 55.5.
The Longhorns have one of the top offenses in the country, scoring 41.6 points per-game with a good balance of run and pass. On defense,
Kansas is giving up 25 points per-game, but has allowed at least 31 points in four of their last five games. Colt McCoy should continue his strong season on Saturday against the Jayhawks as the Longhorns have been primarily a passing team this year.
Kansas has not scored more than 20 points in its last four games and facing one of the better defenses it will see all season in
Texas, which is giving up just 12.6 points per-game and has the top rushing defense in the country, allowing only 514 yards on the ground through four games. With the running game likely to be shutdown, Todd Reesing will have to carry
Kansas with his arm. Reesing has thrown for five touchdowns and five interceptions in his last five games and will have to be mistake-free on Saturday for
Kansas to compete.
The key in picking this game comes down to
Kansas’ motivation. Recent trends show that the Jayhawks are a team crumbling and the off the field drama would indicate the same. With the recent allegations against Mangino, this week is a chance for
Kansas to rally behind their coach, but in all likelihood, the eighth-year skipper has lost his team.
Texas is likely to feast all over the Jayhawks at home and continue their dominance in this series. We suggest a pick of
Texas to cover and the over.
