College Basketball Betting Trends
The Wildcats are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games versus the Big 12. Kansas State is 5-1 ATS in its last six road games.
The Longhorns are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. Texas is 1-5 ATS in its last six Tuesday games.
Texas has only lost one conference game at home and that came a month ago against Texas Tech. The Longhorns are efficient on both ends of the floor, whereas KSU has an outstanding defense but lacks a well-rounded offensive attack. That is going to get the Wildcats in trouble here and there with this being a prime spot for that to occur. Look for Texas to protect its home court and send Kansas State to a defeat by more than three points.
