Game Totals Prediction

The over is the recommended side in this one, as this game has the potential to turn into a track meet. Both Texas and Kansas prefer to push the pace while on offense, as the Longhorns average 16.1 seconds per offensive possession in conference games (second in Big 12) while the Jayhawks average 16.7 seconds per offensive possession (third in Big 12.) Texas has the ability to take advantage of Kansas’ frontcourt as McCormack will be tasked with staying with a more athletic Sims for the majority of the night. In the first meeting between these schools, Sims scored 11 points on an efficient 5-of-6 shooting and grabbed 12 rebounds. McCormack had one of his least efficient outings, only scoring eight points with all eight coming via free-throws as McCormack went 0-of-4 from the field and only grabbed five rebounds in 27 minutes. Back the over in a game that figures to be played at a fast pace.
