Play on Texas using the money line.  While the price is steep (bet $340 to win $100 at SBG Global), all angles suggest an easy win by Texas against Baylor here. 

Using the money line in home games when playing with one or less days rest, Texas' record is 14-2 since 1997.  Likewise,  Baylor in the first half of games against conference opponents over the past two seasons has gone 7-23.  Ouch!

Texas has won the last 10 games against Baylor.
Texas (19-9, 8-6) entered Saturday's game at Oklahoma State winners of four of five, but suffered a 68-59 loss to the Cowboys.

The Longhorns rallied from a 17-point second-half deficit and had three chances to tie the score in the final four minutes, but failed to take advantage each time.

"We had our chances," Texas coach Rick Barnes said. "Our guys showed a lot of heart."

The Longhorns shot a season-low 31.5 percent as they were held to fewer than 60 points for only the second time in 2008-09. They've lost all seven games in which they've scored 66 points or fewer, but don't figure to have as much trouble on offense Monday.
