                  NCAAB Game of the Day: Texas Tech at Kansas betting preview and odds
                  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                  No. 21 Texas Tech Red Raiders at No. 13 Kansas Jayhawks (-7, 149)

                  Texas Tech is a perfect 3-0 against top-25 opponents this year including a 77-53 smack-down of No. 17 Baylor on Friday night in its Big 12 opener. The Red Raiders will try to make it four in a row over ranked foes this season on Tuesday night when they travel to 11th-ranked Kansas.

                  The Jayhawks, who opened conference play with a 92-86 win at Texas, have won 13 Big 12 titles in a row so a road win would be huge for Texas Tech. Second-year Red raiders head coach Chris Beard will be trying to make history Tuesday night because the Red Raiders, who lost by just one point to then-No. 3 Kansas (80-79) at home last season, are 0-17 all-time at Allen Fieldhouse. Toss in the fact that Kansas has won 11 straight home conference openers dating back to a 59-55 loss to Kansas State on Jan. 14, 2006 and the Red Raiders definitely are trying to buck some pretty big trends. "The word around our camp today and yesterday and, eventually, tomorrow is opportunity," Beard said. "You get into this to play against the best and coach against the best. This is a great early conference game for us to see where we stack up against one of the best teams in the country."

                  • Tuesday's Tip Sheet
                    January 2, 2018


                    TCU at Baylor (-1 ½, 149) – 7:00 PM EST – ESPNNEWS

                    Both these Texas squads suffered losses in their Big 12 openers over the weekend as they each seek their first conference win. The Horned Frogs (12-1 SU, 6-6 ATS) entered Saturday’s action as only one of three undefeated teams remaining in the country, but they lost in the final seconds to Oklahoma, 90-89 as 2 ½-point home favorites. Jamie Dixon’s squad has yet to play a true road game this season, as the Frogs compiled a 2-7 SU and 3-6 ATS record against conference foes away from Ft. Worth last season.

                    The Bears (10-3 SU, 3-3 ATS) suffered a 24-point setback at Texas Tech on Friday, 77-53 as 7 ½-point underdogs to snap a five-game winning streak. Baylor fell behind, 40-19 at halftime and never recovered as Scott Drew’s club shot 37% from the floor, including 3-of-12 from three-point range. The Bears own a solid 8-1 home record, although Baylor cleaned up on subpar competition with their only loss coming to a terrific Wichita State team.

                    Since 2013, Baylor has won 10 consecutive meetings with TCU, including a season sweep last season. The Horned Frogs struggled to score against the Bears by getting held to 53 and 52 points in the two defeats, as TCU has compiled a dreadful 1-9 ATS record in this stretch.

                    Butler at Xavier (-7, 154) – 7:00 PM EST – FS1

                    The Bulldogs (12-3 SU, 8-6 ATS) overcame a 20-point deficit to stun Georgetown in overtime of their Big East opener last week, but didn’t dig themselves a hole against top-ranked Villanova on Saturday.

                    Butler built a 23-point advantage before holding off Villanova, 101-93 to cash outright as 5 ½-point home underdogs. The Bulldogs shot lights out from three-point range (15-of-22), led by Kelan Martin’s 24 points and Paul Jorgensen’s 23 points. Butler has cashed the OVER in seven consecutive games, while topping the 90-point mark in four of the past six contests.

                    Xavier (14-1 SU, 11-4 ATS) edged DePaul on Saturday, 77-72 as 14-point favorites to improve to 2-0 in Big East play. The Musketeers erased an eight-point halftime lead and beat the Blue Demons in spite of shooting 42% from the field. Chris Mack’s club has yet to lose at the Cintas Center this season, going 10-0, including victories over Cincinnati and Baylor.

                    Last season, the road team won each meeting as Butler knocked off Xavier in Cincinnati, 88-79 as 2 ½-point away favorites in February. Butler has won six of its past seven road conference games since last January, while Xavier has struggled against the number recently in Big East play by going 4-13 ATS in the past 17 conference tilts.

                    Texas Tech at Kansas (-7, 149) – 9:00 PM EST – ESPN


                    The Red Raiders (12-1 SU, 6-3 ATS) are a force to be reckoned with in the Big 12 this season following a fast start. Texas Tech crushed Baylor in Lubbock on Friday, 77-53 as 7 ½-point favorites, as Keenan Evans led the Raiders with 18 points. Tech outrebounded Baylor, 36-17, while connecting on 50% of their shots from the floor. The key to reaching elite status in the Big 12 is winning on the road, as the Red Raiders posted a miserable 0-9 SU and 3-6 ATS mark away from Lubbock in conference play last season.

                    The Jayhawks (11-2 SU, 8-4 ATS) knocked off Texas in the Big 12 opener, 92-86 as four-point road favorites, as Devonte’ Graham paced KU with 23 points, including hitting six three-pointers. Amazingly, Kansas won its conference opener for the 27th straight season, while looking to extend its streak to 14 consecutive regular season Big 12 titles this season.

                    Bill Self’s squad has won 16 straight matchups with Texas Tech since getting surprised in Lubbock, 84-69 in March 2009. The Jayhawks captured eight of nine home conference games last season, but put together a 2-7 ATS mark as one of those two covers came against Texas Tech in a 17-point blowout.

                    Florida at Texas A&M (-2 ½, 143 ½) – 9:00 PM EST – ESPN2

                    The Gators (9-4 SU, 5-7 ATS) suffered several hiccups in non-conference play in December by losing consecutive home games to Florida State and Loyola-Illinois. Florida is currently on a three-game winning streak, capped off by a victory in its SEC opener over Vanderbilt on Saturday, 81-74, but the Gators failed to cash as 9 ½-point favorites. Mike White’s club jumped out to a 20-point halftime edge before the Commodores rallied for the cover.

                    The Aggies (11-2 SU, 5-5 ATS) were crushed in their conference opener on Saturday at Alabama, 79-57 to end a four-game winning streak. Texas A&M continues to play without star forward D.J. Hogg (14.6 ppg), who is serving a three-game suspension for a violation of team rules and will be out again tonight. The Aggies have won all seven home contests this season, although there weren’t any standout victories.

                    Florida knocked off Texas A&M in their lone matchup last season in Gainesville, 71-62 as 11 ½-point favorites, as the Gators seek their first win in College Station since 2013. The Aggies struggled at home against SEC foes last season by going 2-7 ATS, while the Gators put together an impressive 6-3 SU and 5-4 ATS mark away from Gainesville in SEC play.

                    • Conference races heat up in this week in the AP Top 25
                      January 2, 2018


                      The last Saturday in 2017 took out the final three unbeaten teams.

                      The first week in 2018 could be a big early step in determining races in three conferences.

                      The week features six games between ranked teams, including four on Saturday.

                      Oklahoma has a tough week after moving up to No. 7, facing rival Oklahoma State on Wednesday, then heading to No. 6 West Virginia on Saturday.

                      The Sooners (11-1) have been on the rise since entering the Top 25 three weeks ago, generating a national buzz with freshman guard Trae Young having his way with whoever tries to guard him.

                      The Bedlam game is always difficult and the Sooners won't have it any easier against the Mountaineers (11-1), who have won 11 straight since an opening loss to Texas A&M.

                      Press Virginia against the nation's leader in scoring and assists? Bring it on.

                      Kansas (11-2) appears to be back on track for making a run at a 14th straight Big 12 title, moving up to No. 10 in this week's poll after beating Texas on Friday for its fourth straight win. The Jayhawks face a pair of big tests this week, starting with No. 18 Texas Tech on Tuesday.

                      Kansas then moves on to play at No. 16 TCU, which had its undefeated season end with a loss to Oklahoma last week. The Horned Frogs climbed up to No. 10 before the loss, the program's highest ranking, and face Baylor on Tuesday before hosting the Jayhawks.

                      ''Our team, I think we're going to be really good by the end,'' Kansas coach Bill Self said. ''But I don't think that we're going to be close to what we can be until February and that's with everybody getting favorable outcomes.''

                      North Carolina (11-2) won't have an easy week, either, though there rarely is one in the ACC.

                      The No. 12 Tar Heels, who beat Wake Forest in their ACC opener, play at No. 24 Florida State on Wednesday and host No. 8 Virginia on Saturday.

                      ''Once you get in the league they know more about you and know all your warts,'' Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said.

                      The final ranked-on-ranked game should be a good one: No. 17 Kentucky at No. 23 Tennessee on Saturday.

                      The Wildcats (11-2) responded from a loss to UCLA in New Orleans by dominating rival Louisville 90-61 and held off Georgia 66-61 on Saturday.

                      The Vols (9-3) lost an eight-point lead in the final four minutes and fell in overtime 95-93 to Arkansas on Saturday, but managed to remain in this week's poll. The Razorbacks (11-2) moved back into the poll for the first time since 2014-15 at No. 22 this week and play at Mississippi State on Tuesday.

                      TOP-RANKED SPARTANS


                      Michigan State (14-1) moved into to No. 1 spot in AP Top 25 for the first time since 2015-16 this week.

                      The Spartans were leapfrogged by the Wildcats when Duke lost to Boston College and spent three weeks at No. 2, but moved atop the poll after previously top-ranked Villanova's loss to Butler.

                      Michigan State plays at Maryland on Thursday and goes to Ohio State on Sunday.

                      CLEMSON RISING


                      Clemson has been in a six-year NCAA Tournament drought, but could be ready to end that.

                      With four players scoring in double figures, the Tigers (12-1) have proven they can be players in the ACC race this season. Clemson has victories over South Carolina and Florida on its resume, and opened conference play with a 78-62 victory over North Carolina State.

                      The Tigers, who have won eight straight, play at Boston College on Wednesday and host Louisville on Saturday.

                          CINCINNATI (AP) J.P. Macura scored 15 of his 20 points in the first half to get Xavier rolling, and Trevon Bluiett had 21 points as the fifth-ranked Musketeers won their 10th in a row, beating Butler 86-79 on Tuesday night.

                          The Musketeers (15-1, 3-0 Big East) matched their highest ranking in school history on Monday. A day later, they matched the best start in school history by getting up 14 points and holding on against the team that's pulled off the biggest upset so far in the conference.

                          Butler (12-4, 2-1) was coming off 101-93 win over then-No. 1 Villanova on Saturday. The Bulldogs were only 4 of 14 from beyond the arc in the first half, with Xavier leading 44-36. Kaiser Gates had a pair of free throws and a 3-pointer that pushed the lead to 66-52 midway through the second half.

                          Kamar Baldwin had 28 points for Butler and Kelan Martin added 25.

                          No. 18 TEXAS TECH 85, No. 10 KANSAS 73

                          LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Keenan Evans scored 15 points, Norense Odiase and Justin Gray had 12 apiece, and Texas Tech never trailed in winning at Allen Fieldhouse or the first time in 18 tries.

                          The Red Raiders (13-1, 2-0 Big 12) built a 16-point lead midway through the first half, then found an answer every time the 3-point-dependent Jayhawks (11-3, 1-1) tried to mount a second-half charge.

                          Zach Smith had 11 points and Jarrett Culver contributed 10 for Texas Tech, which has won its first two Big 12 games for the first time in a decade. The Red Raiders also snapped a four-game skid in league road openers by winning their seventh straight game in the toughest of venues.

                          Devonte Graham led the Jayhawks with 27 points. They were 6 of 26 from beyond the arc and missed all 12 of their 3-point attempts in the second half.

                          FLORIDA 83, No. 11 TEXAS A&M 66

                          COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Egor Koulechov scored 19 points and Keith Stone added 18 as Florida built a big lead early and cruised to victory.

                          The short-handed Aggies, who were playing without three starters, dropped their second straight game after starting the season 11-1 and rising to No. 5 in the poll. This was A&M's second straight lopsided loss after a 79-57 defeat at Alabama on Saturday.

                          The Gators (10-4, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) made 17 3-pointers, led by five from Koulechov and four from Stone to win their fourth straight game.

                          Texas A&M (11-3, 0-2) was led by Jay Jay Chandler's 17 points on a night the team was missing Admon Gilder, who missed his fourth straight game with a knee injury, and Duane Wilson who also sat out with a knee injury. Leading scorer D.J. Hogg, who is averaging 14.6 points a game, served the last game of a three-game suspension for an undisclosed team rules violation.

                          No. 16 TCU 81, BAYLOR 78, OT

                          WACO, Texas (AP) - Vladimir Brodziansky had 18 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer in overtime, as TCU bounced back from its first loss.

                          The Horned Frogs (13-1, 1-1 Big 12), after blowing a 12-point lead in the second half, went ahead to stay on Brodziansky's 3 from the top of the key with 1:29 left in overtime that made it 75-74.

                          Jo Lual-Acuil had 28 points and 11 rebounds for Baylor (10-4, 0-2), while Terry Maston had 20 points and nine rebounds.

                          MISSISSIPPI STATE 78, No. 22 ARKANSAS 75

                          STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Nick Weatherspoon scored 22 points and his brother Quinndary Weatherspoon added another 22 for Mississippi State.

                          Mississippi State (13-1, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) built off its best start during non-conference play in years, rallying for the win after trailing for much of the second half.

                          Arkansas (11-3, 1-1) was playing its first game in the AP's national rankings since March 2015. The Razorbacks came in averaging more than 90 points per game, but Mississippi State slowed the pace and took a 32-28 lead into halftime.

                          Daryl Macon led Arkansas with 24 points while Daniel Gafford added 17.

                          AUBURN 94, No. 23 TENNESSEE 84

                          KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Bryce Brown and Jared Harper each scored 18 points as Auburn erased an early 14-point deficit for its 11th straight victory.

                          By rallying in its Southeastern Conference opener, Auburn extended its longest winning streak since a 14-game run in 1999-2000. Auburn (13-1, 1-0 SEC) also ended a 10-game road skid in this series and beat Tennessee in Knoxville for the first time since a 74-69 triumph on Jan. 7, 1998.

                          Lamonte Turner had a carer-high 25 points for Tennessee (9-4, 0-2) has lost two straight games for the first time this season.
