Texas vs. VCU Pick

Texas vs. VCU College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread 12/5/17

How will Shaka Smart and his Texas team handle playing against his former squad, VCU, when the two meet tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Texas is favored on the road tonight, as the Longhorns are getting odds of -5 points against VCU. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 146.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Stuart C. Siegel Center in Richmond, Virginia and will air live on ESPN2.

Texas is coming off an 82-58 win over Florida A&M last week to snap a two-game losing streak. The Longhorns are now 5-2 on the season while going just 1-2 against the spread. Texas is scoring 79.3 points per game this year while giving up just 63.3 points per game. Andrew Jones is leading the team with 14.7 points per game while Dylan Osetkowski is adding 13.6 points and 8 rebounds per game.

VCU is coming off an 82-75 win over Old Dominion last weekend to improve to 5-3 on the season. The Rams are 3-3 against the spread, covering the spread in three of their last four games. VCU is putting up 81.1 points per game this season while allowing 75.5 per contest. Justin Tillman is leading the team with 15.5 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while De’Riante Jenkins is adding 14.3 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

Bet on Texas vs. VCU

These two have no recent meetings to consider for tonight’s clash. While the Rams have managed to cover in four of their last five against the Big 12, they are just 1-4 ATS in their last five against a team with a .600 winning percentage. VCU isn’t at full strength right now, which will make it tough against this Texas defense. Smart should know how to play against the Rams, while the Rams won’t have the athletes to match Texas. The public betting is siding with Texas as well tonight.
