According to oddsmakers from online sports book Realbet.eu, the Jayhawks are a 2-point road favorite for tonight's 9:00PM ET tip-off in Austin. As for the total, the number opened at 141.5 but has dropped to 141.

Kansas will be looking to wrap up an outright Big 12 regular-season title for the eight time in the past 12 years after clinching at least a share of the title with a 67-58 win over Texas Tech on Saturday. The Jayhawks either need to beat the Longhorns or No. 17 Iowa State this Saturday to win yet another conference title.

But the Longhorns have been tough both against top 25 opponents, and as an underdog. This matchup tonight with Kansas will markt he fourth straight home game against a ranked foe for Texas, which is 2-1 outright in its previous three matchups. Texas knocked off then-No. 10 West Virginia 85-78 on February 16 and is 4-1 at home against ranked teams this season.

The Longhorns are also 8-4 against the spread as an underdog this season and a perfect 3-0 at the betting window in their three games as a home dog, winning by an average margin of 6.0 points in those three contests. Both of these teams are hot at the betting window but with Texas 5-1 ATS in its last six home games and 10-2 ATS in its last 12 games overall, taking the points with the Longhorns at Frank Erwin Special Events Center seems wise tonight.
