Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play February 6th


#878 KANSAS (-4′) over Texas at 9 PM EST
Off that ugly 68-53 road loss at Iowa State and on a weak 2-4 SU and ATS run, Kansas will rally the troops and pick up a huge win and cover when No. 9/8 Texas comes to town. The Longhorns enter this Big 12 battle off back-to-back SU and ATS wins over the Bears and Wildcats and this trip to Allen Fieldhouse will be a tough one.

A quick peek at the History Book show that the Jayhawks have dominated this series lately inking a solid 32-11 SU record in the last 43 meetings. Equally impressive, when coming off a straight up loss, KU has been worth the financial risk posting a profitable 83-10 SU and 53-35-2 ATS mark including a money-making 49-5 SU and 37-16 ATS provided its opponent enters with confidence off a straight up win. Also, when coming off exactly one blowout loss of 10 points or more, Rock-Chalk-Jayhawk holds a strong 52-4 SU and 34-15 ATS tally including a sweet 30-0 SU and 18-6 ATS if they are rolling in Lawrence.

Sporting a 20-30 ATS mark in their last 50 lined games, UT hasn’t exactly been a pointspread darling. In this run hitting the hardwood with momentum off two or more straight up wins, the ‘Horns fall to a woeful 3-15 ATS in their last 18 tries. Also, as a guest arriving with confidence off a straight up road win, Texas has been a poor source of income notching a rough 15-23 SU and 10-25-1 ATS mark including a miserable 1-13-1 ATS provided the Longhorns own a team won/loss percentage of .735 or better.

Jayhawks head coach Bill Self is one of the best at getting his players to respond after a beating and he will have them juiced up and ready to go for this nationally televised battle. Take Kansas. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
