Texas Longhorns | Big 12


Conference Analysis
Win Conference (+375)
SSA Model Pick: None
The season got off to a rough start last year for the Longhorns as they were 1-2 in non-conference play. But they rebounded and went 5-4 in the Big 12. With Herman at the helm this team should compete to make a Big 12 title game appearance.

Win Total Analysis
8.5 wins (-110/-110)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Medium Confidence)
It’s been almost 10 years since the Longhorns have had a 10+ win season. Given the way Herman is recruiting, Texas should have double digit wins soon but it’s unlikely this year. There are a ton of coin-flip games this season so anywhere between 6 wins and 10 wins is likely. 8 wins or fewer and the under hits, so it’s not a guarantee, but hey, we’re talking about gambling.
