The 2013 college basketball betting campaign continues on Saturday night at Phog Allen Fieldhouse, where the Kansas Jayhawks duke it out with the Texas Longhorns.
Way back at the beginning of the season the Texas Longhorns were the favorites in the Maui Invitational. Texas flopped in Maui, and they have never really found their groove ever since. The Longhorns would need a minor miracle to be in contention for a NCAA Tournament spot. Kansas State is 15-4 on the year, and the Wildcats are 9-1 at home. Bruce Weber’s team is 4-2 in the Big 12 Conference.
The 2012 Jimmy V Classic heads to Madison Square Garden, where college basketball betting fans can sink their teeth into another great clash on the collegiate hardwood on Tuesday, as the Georgetown Hoyas take on the Texas Longhorns.
The 2012 Big XII Championship could be handed out on Saturday night in the “Little Apple,” where the Kansas State Wildcats hope to hold on as heavy favorites on the college football betting odds against the Texas Longhorns.
Texas has really had a tale of a few seasons this year. The team started off winning games in solid fashion, and then it hit a midseason lull that was capped off by a dismal 63-21 loss to the hated Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Rivalry.
It has become a Thanksgiving Day tradition in the Lone Star State over the course of the last few years, but this year, the Texas Longhorns will be battling it out in NCAA football betting action against the TCU Horned Frogs instead of the Texas A&M Aggies.
It’s a battle of the state of Texas Saturday afternoon in Lubbock as the Longhorns take on the Red Raiders. Both teams have improved quite a bit in the past couple years, and they come in with an identical 6-2 record. Texas snuck out of Kansas with a win last week, while the Red Raiders were blasted by Kansas State in Manhattan. The Red Raiders are favored by more than a touchdown here.
The Red River Rivalry isn’t quite as meaningful in the national picture as normal, but that won’t stop these two heated rivals from battling hard all the way through this Saturday afternoon’s contest. Both teams already have a loss and are almost assuredly out of the national title picture, but this is still a rivalry game between two teams with aspirations of winning the Big 12 Conference. Let’s take a closer look at this game.
West Virginia is coming off a game where they allowed 63 points and still won. Texas allowed 36 points in Stillwater last week, but they edged out Oklahoma State 41-36. Will either of the defenses show up for this one? It’s a battle of two teams who look like serious contenders in the highly competitive Big 12 Conference.
The West Virginia Mountaineers arguably have the most high-powered offense in the nation this year.
The early advantage in the Big XII will be handed out on Saturday night at Boone Pickens Stadium, where the college football odds will be contested between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns.
The Horns have been awesome all year long, but this is really going to be their first massive test. Head Coach Mack Brown will be quick to point out the fact that the Ole Miss Rebels team that his squad blew out two weeks ago is a 3-1 team and the Wyoming Cowboys that his team beat to start the year did win eight games in 2011.
The Texas Longhorns are bouncing back from their brutal season a couple years ago. Texas went 8-5 last year, and the Longhorns have been impressive in consecutive wins to start the 2012 season. Mississippi has a new coach in Hugh Freeze. The Rebels have started the season 2-0, but it has been against subpar competition. This is the team’s first real test of the 2012 season.
Texas has primarily gone with David Ash as their quarterback this year. Case McCoy has seen limited action as well, but it seems the coaches are most comfortable with Ash under center.
