Time: 9:00 PM EST
Date: Tuesday, March 3, 2020
The Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners meet in college basketball action from Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, OK on Tuesday night. Both teams are vying for a tie for 3rd place in the Big 12 Conference and playing towards improving their resume for the NCAA Tournament. These teams last met on January 8th with Oklahoma beating Texas 72–62 as -3 point road favorites.
Texas (18–11, 13–16 ATS) is turning some heads after winning four-straight games including wins over #14 West Virginia and #22 Texas Tech. The Longhorns won’t the opposition out of the gym, averaging only 64.8 PPG on offense but they’re calling card is the defense which allows only 63.1 PPG ranking them 28th in the nation. Texas has held its last four opponents to 57.5 PPG on average and all four opponents were held to under 60 points. Andrew Jones has stepped up offensively and has scored 20+ points in three of their last four victories.
Oklahoma (18–11, 13–16 ATS) has won two straight but they are just 5–5 SU their last 10 contests. The Sooners are one of the most balanced teams in the Big 12, ranking 35th in defensive efficiency and 53rd in offensive efficiency. Kristan Doolittle is one of three players that average 13.5 PPG and as a team, the Sooners average 69 PPG. The Sooners are 12–2 at home this season — their only losses coming against top-ranked Kansas and №4 Baylor.
The road team is 4–0 ATS while the underdog is 13–3 ATS the last 16 meetings. The defense will win this game and the Longhorns will keep this game close on the road in conference play. The Longhorns recent winning streak has their confidence sky high and I like their chances on the road as +6.5 point dogs.
