STANFORD (6-3) AT TEXAS (10-1), 7:00 PM (ET)


Texas has won all but one of its games with the only defeat coming at the hands of Kentucky. The Longhorns covered that game but failed to cover their last contest - a 10-point win over Long Beach State, a game they were favored by 15 points. Texas is giving Stanford 10.5 points this evening, a line that looks fair considering the Cardinal have lost three games already.

Stanford comes in off a 2-point loss at BYU. It was the Cardinal's first cover in their last four matchups. They are averaging 73 points per game but that number should drop after tonight's game since Texas is giving up just 53 points per game. That last number is amazing considering the Longhorns have played the likes of Kentucky, Connecticut, Iowa and California.

Texas has topped the 71-point mark just one time in its last seven lined games so the odds of this game going over the total are slim.

SPORTS NETWORK CHOICE: Take under 127.5 points.

THE TRENDS REPORT

Stanford is 6-3 SU and 4-5 ATS in its last nine games
Texas is 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in its last nine lined games
Texas is 2-0 both SU and ATS the last two meetings
