The Wildcats should have no problems romping to another win on Wednesday night, knowing that this game against Texas is a de facto bye game in the hot and heavy Big XII. It’s a nice spot to back the Cats for sure, knowing that they are going to be given a lot of disrespect by the oddsmakers after losing to Kansas and Iowa State last week. However, the team was a dog in both of those games, and the losses were both competitive games, so we aren’t punishing the Cats by any stretch of the imagination. Texas just flat out stinks offensively. Sure, the team is holding clubs down to just 35.3 percent shooting from the field, but if G Sheldon McClellan gets taken away from this offense, there is no way that the team is going to score 65 points. Texas has covered three in a row, and we expect that the college basketball odds are going to be reflective of that, but that doesn’t mean that it is justified. Head Coach Mack Brown and the gang are under .500 for a reason, and though the team is getting better, the loss of F Jonathan Holmes will really be felt in this one. The men in purple should romp by double digits at home.
Texas vs. Kansas State Pick: Kansas State Wildcats -8.5
