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.

Monday night we pretty much knew by the end of the 5th inning in the Nationals-Rockies game our pick on the OVER would not lose.  That's because the score hit 5-5 with an OVER 11.  The pitching got better after that so we still had a bit of a wait to see the end result.
