Following what seemed like a never ending stream of winners, Gambling911.com got destroyed with its Pacers free pick hosting an insanely hot Golden State team Monday night.


Kansas in College Basketball was the most wagered on side early in their game against Texas.  They are actually a +1 road dog in this one despite the Longhorns going just 11-9.

PJ Washington scored 14 of his 20 points in the second half, and No. 8 Kentucky beat No. 9 Kansas 71-63 on Saturday in the SEC-Big 12 Challenge.

Books are doing everything possible to get even more action on KU despite the 85% backing they were seeing on the spread.  This one opened Jayhawks -2.

Kansas has also won the last ten in this series.

The Longhorns will be our pick today as we are giving them a 57% edge here.

The Kansas City Star writes:

The Longhorns might have entered this week tied for seventh in the Big 12 standings, but there shouldn’t be as much shame in that this season considering the league’s top-heavy nature. The reality is, Texas is somewhere around the 35th-best team in the nation, a fact that’s harder to realize given the team’s 11-9 record against a difficult schedule.

Nebraska is also seeing 62% of the action as the second most wagered on side ahead of the Bucks in the NBA. 

The Huskers are -2.  Here we are seeing this trend from PICK'EM to -2, which appears to be an attempt at getting more action on Wisconsin.

The Bucks were seeing better than 90% of the early action as a -7.5 favorite vs. Detroit.  This one opened at -6.5.
