Can the Jayhawks win back to back games? I think they get the win but not the cover against Texas. Kansas is averaging 79 points per game and they are shooting 48% from the field. Kansas has come out on top of some tough games but they've also let some just so-so teams get the better of them until finally pulling out a last minute win. Texas is averaging 71 points per game, 8 points less than the Jayhawks. Texas is going to be looking to come back from back to back loses, including a loss to Texas Tech in their last matchup. Not sure what's happening with Texas but they didn't look that great in their last two games. Texas has had success on the road in Kansas though so that will push me over to the Texas cover side.

Texas hasnt looked great in their back-to-back losses, but the Longhorns battle and have a slight edge on defense in this matchup. The Jayhawks have been hit with injuries, but nevertheless are in second place in the Big 12 and ranked in the Top 10 thanks to the superb play of Dedric Lawson and Lagerald Vick. Texas has battled inconsistency all season and I just don't think the Horns have the fire power to keep up with this KU team on their home court. KU should be able to win this one by double digits.
My Pick: Kansas -8

Kansas City Star: Jayhawks survive last-second scare from Texas, win again on Big Monday, 80-78
Kansas' basketball team remains unstoppable at home when featured on ESPN's Big Monday broadcast.
Thanks in large part to Texas native Marcus Garrett, who scored a career-high 20 points (17 in the first half), the No. 7-ranked Jayhawks downed Texas 80-78 on Monday at Allen Fieldhouse.
Lagerald Vick led the way with 21 points and Dedric Lawson and Devon Dotson had 17 and 10 apiece as the Jayhawks (15-2, 4-1), who cashed 11 threes to Texas' 13, improved to 27-0 in home Big Monday contests during the 16-year Bill Self era.
KU, which had no turnovers the first half and four for the game, knocked off the Longhorns (10-7, 2-3) for the 10th straight time.

Kansas Jayhawks (63% consensus). Ninth-ranked Kansas has bounced back from a 17-point loss at Iowa State to win two straight games heading into Monday night's contest with visiting Texas. The Jayhawks, who are trying for their 15th consecutive Big 12 regular season title, come in off a 73-68 win at Baylor on Saturday and enter Monday's game in second place, a game behind Texas Tech... http://bit.ly/2B2YVSL
Fansided: Texas Basketball: 5 reasons Longhorns upset Kansas Jayhawks
Another disappointing loss for the Texas basketball program made for a rough start to the most daunting stretch of the Big 12 slate. As a borderline NCAA Tournament team at this point of the regular season, Texas basketball needs a strong response very soon.
After starting out the Big 12 slate 2-0, Texas basketball lost its last two games that were both winnable. The two wins for Texas basketball came over the Kansas State Wildcats on the road and the West Virginia Mountaineers at home. Kansas State and West Virginia proved so far that both could be bottom dwellers in the Big 12 standings.
