Texas vs. Alabama Pick

Texas vs. Alabama Predictions Against The Spread 12/22/17

Who has the edge in the Vulcan Classic when Alabama and Texas meet in college basketball tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Alabama is the slight favorite in this game, as the Crimson Tide are getting odds of -3.5 points against Texas. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 138 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Legacy Arena at BJCC in Birmingham, Alabama and will air live on ESPN2.

Texas is coming off a 47-46 win over Tennessee State for its fourth win in five games. The Longhorns are now 8-3 on the season. They are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six lined games and 2-5 ATS on the year. Texas is averaging 72.7 points per game on offense while allowing just 61.4 per game on defense. Texas is without leading scorer Andrew Jones due to a wrist injury. He was averaging 15.3 points per game. Dylan Osetkowski is now the team leader with 15.2 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

Alabama is coming off a narrow 80-79 win over Mercer earlier this week. The Crimson Tide are now 8-3 on the season. Like Texas, they have struggles at the betting window recently. The Crimson Tide are 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six games and 4-5-1 ATS on the year. The Tide are putting up 79.4 points per game on offense this season while allowing 72.3 per game on defense. Collin Sexton is leading the team with 21.7 points per game while Donta Hall is adding 11.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.

Bet on Texas vs. Alabama

Texas won last year’s meeting with Alabama, 77-68. The Longhorns are without a key player, but I like what Texas can do on defense. The Longhorns are always going to apply a lot of pressure throughout the game and I think that should rattle this Alabama team. The public betting is siding with Bama tonight, but I like the Longhorns to grind out the game.

CBB DAILY PREDICTION: TEXAS +3.5
