4* Baylor/Texas Big 12 Game of the Week: Texas +1.5
The Longhorns have compiled a solid 11-4 home record despite their 13-16 overall record and with tonight being senior night, I look for an inspired effort from Texas. Baylor has a much better overall record at 17-12, but they are just 6-7 on the road and only beat the Longhorns by 7-points earlier this season on their home floor. Adding even more value here is the fact that Texas has lost three straight in the series, which should only add to the motivation level. While the Longhorns are coming off a 13-point road loss at Oklahoma St, they knocked off Oklahoma 92-86 as a 2-point underdog in their last home game.
Texas also falls into a very favorable situation thanks to Baylor's 61-64 home loss to Kansas State this weekend. Home teams as an underdog or pick'em revenging a road loss against an opponent off a home loss by 3-points or less are a dominant 62-29 ATS over the last 5 seasons. BET TEXAS!
