The Texas Longhorns are 1-1 this season but their only game against a prominent program, against Washington, was a loss. Texas is averaging 69 points and they are shooting 33.3 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 66.5 points and their opponents shoot 29.7 percent from the floor. Isaiah Taylor leads the Longhorns averaging 16.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. Cameron Ridley is averaging 10 points and 12 rebounds, Javan Felix is averaging 8.0 points, and Connor Lambert is averaging 7.5 points and 6.0 rebounds. Texas has had long gaps between games which should help as they adjust to Shaka Smart’s system.
Texas A&M is 4-1 against the spread following a win, 5-16 against the spread in their last 21 neutral site games, and 0-5 against the spread against the Big 12. Texas is 3-0-1 against the spread following a win, 1-4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 0-5 against the spread in their last five non-conference games. Texas is 6-14-1 against the spread in their last 21 games against Texas A&M.
Texas A&M’s record is inflated because they have played soft competition and I look for Texas to cover here.
