A pair of Top-25 teams will meet at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday afternoon when No. 6 Kansas hosts No. 21 Texas at 4:00 p.m. ET on ESPN. Is 6.5 too large a number to lay with the home favorite or will Kansas roll today against its Big 12 foe?
677 Texas Longhorns (+6.5) at 678 Kansas Jayhawks (-6.5); o/u 137.5
4:00 p.m. ET, Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence, KS
Texas Longhorns DFS Snapshot
Courtney Ramey totaled six points (2-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and three steals in 36 minutes during Monday's 68-61 loss to Baylor. Ramey continues to struggled from the field. Over the last eight games he has not once scored in double figures and is averaging just 6.8 points on 29 percent shooting from the field and 18 percent from downtown. It's hard to see what Ramey has become this season after he put up 12.2 points, 3.9 assists, and 1.8 three-pointers on 41 percent shooting from downtown a season ago. Texas is in desperate need of offense, so maybe Ramey can rekindle what he had last season in the postseason for the Longhorns.
Kansas Jayhawks DFS Snapshot
Dajuan Harris finished Tuesday's 74-64 loss to TCU with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and seven assists across 25 minutes. Harris has logged exactly seven assists in each of the last three games. Over that stretch, however, he has scored just six total points. Even with Remy Martin back in the fold, Harris should still continue to start and play 25+ minutes per night. Kansas will hope to break a two-game losing streak on Thursday in the rematch against TCU.
