Texas Longhorns NCAA Basketball Betting

The Texas Longhorns were one of the biggest disappointments in college basketball this year. Texas made a strong NCAA Tournament run last year when Rodney Terry was the interim head coach. Once that interim tag was removed, things took a turn for the worse. Texas fell far short of expectations this year and annoyed gamblers with a gush of red ink and poor betting value. Texas had above-average metrics but did not show any indefinable strengths this year.

Texas Longhorns Team Overview

Overall, the Texas Longhorns are 20-11 straight up, 12-18-1 against the spread, and 19-12 over/under the total. Texas has national metrics of 96th for scoring offense, 40th for field goal percentage, 46th for 3-point field goal percentage, 44th for free throw percentage, and 219th for offensive rebounding. While defensively, Texas is 107th for scoring defense, 150th for field goal percentage permitted, 268th for 3-point field goal percentage allowed, and 73rd for defensive rebounding. Texas is coming off a 78-74 loss to Kansas State in the Big 12 Tournament.

Late on, Texas has covered three of its previous five games. Texas has gone over the total in eight of its last nine outings. First among Texas scorers is G Max Abmas, with 17.1 points per game.

Tylor Perry was 10-for-10 from the free-throw line on his way to 21 points as 10th-seeded Kansas State knocked off seventh-seeded Texas in the second round of the Big 12 Championship. Kansas State led by 10 with 4:28 to play, but Texas kept charging. Dylan Disu's put-back with 28 seconds left cut the Wildcats' lead to 70-68.

The departure of head coach Chris Beard will go a long way in determining the future of the Longhorns program. The fact remains that Beard is a proven winner who took the Texas Tech Red Raiders to the Final Four. The Texas Longhorns have never won the college basketball national championship for all that they have going for them.

Just as alarming is that the Longhorns have only three Final Fours in their history. Texas last made the Final Four in 2003, with its previous appearances in 1943 and 1947. Like the famed Texas football program, the basketball team has been spinning its wheels with coaches. Rodney Terry did an excellent job taking over on the fly for Beard, producing an Elite Eight run, and is now the permanent head man.

Texas Basketball seemed to be in good hands heading into the 2023-24 season under head coach Rodney Terry. Following their 29-9 finish in 2022-23, they’ve got some key additions to fill the departures of Marcus Carr and Timmy Allen as they look to compete once again in the Big 12.

The Longhorns went 22-8 under Coach Terry and finished in the Elite Eight in last year’s NCAA Tournament. They turned things up in a big way in winning the Big 12 Conference Tournament championship and an automatic bid heading into March Madness. They performed well as a 2-seed in the Midwest region as Terry led them to their furthest result since they made the Elite Eight in the 2008 NCAA Tournament as a 2-seed during the Rick Barnes era.

But in the 2023-24 season, the Longhorns were a disappointment. And Terry came off as a whiner in regards to the Horns Down sign flashed by opponents and fans.
