EYES ON TEXAS RIVALRY

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — From the Playbook Basketball Newsletter: There is never any love lost between these two in-state rivals and it shows up here today with the Horns hosting the Red Raiders with revenge foremost on their minds from a 77-64 loss in Austin eighteen days ago. With it, Texas stands 11-6-1 ATS when playing with the revenge chip in this series, including 5-0 ATS from a same-season loss of 8-plus points. Hook ‘Em is also 17-5-1 ATS in this series when they sport the inferior overall record, including 13-1 ATS in games in which TTRR checks in with a sub. 820 win percentage. With Raiders’ rookie mentor Mark Adams still glowing following Wednesday’s 10-point takedown of Baylor, we seal the deal with an added lift from the well-oiled machine as it supplies

THE CLINCHER: Away teams who defeat the defending National Champion at home and beat the spread by 8-plus points are 1-10 ATS since 2000 when facing a .720 or greater conference foe coming off a win
