Over burdened was our linesman when he came out with the line for KSU and Texas. Mathematical formulas are the norm and heavily relied on to put out the mass of numbers each and every day. Once in a while, there is a monkeywrench that throws the established systems amok. Tonight in the Kansas State at Texas game, we have that situation. What injury is throwing our man for a loop going in to this one?
Free Pick : Sharp Money on Texas
Two conflicting trends collide head on and the sharps have sided with Texas. Spread started at – 4 1/2 and is in the sixes now everywhere. Texas has Taylor at guard and he is probably the best man on the floor. However, the Longhorn big man broke his foot and is out for the season. Trying to find the double double he does with his frame and weight in the middle is going to be a tough task for this team. Sharps have gone with the best man on the floor theory among two teams that have started conference play 0-1 in the Big 12.
Three players over ten points a game but none can light it up. Combine that with a not so challenging pre conference schedule has some squeamish. They lost at home in 2OT against K-State. Wildcats saw their team get out rebounded by nearly ten in this one. This will be the big concern for K-State going forward. However, practical solutions should be found at least against Texas in this one. Longhorn depth frontcourt is rather green and has not hit their stride since Cameron went down for them two games ago.
K-State would be in trouble if this was farther down the road. They will suffer little effect from the two overtime game from an attrition standpoint. Look for them to throw everything at the one guard and make the others beat them. Balance prevails in this one. The plus six points in pocket helps out greatly. Free Pick for College Basketball is KSU +6. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at the HRW.
