- Where: Moody Center, Austin, Texas

Betting on Louisiana Ragin Cajuns
Louisiana Ragin Cajuns got the college basketball season off to a strong start, posting five consecutive wins in the opener, one over Centenary Lousiana, one over Harvard, one over East Tennessee State, and two other ones agaisnt Louisiana Tech and SMU. Drake prevented Louisiana from keeping up the good pace it has been having as it led them to their first loss with a score of 76-64.
However, that’s the only game they’ve lost so far in 11 games played, and because of that, they’re among the best in the Sun Belt Conference with the second most wins. They arrive to this game with five consecutive wins, and they are looking to continue extending their winning streak.
Betting on the Texas Longhorns
- Regular Season Record: 9-1
- DraftKings Spread: -17.5
- DraftKings Moneyline: -3000
- DraftKings Over/Under: 141
The Texas Longhorns do not have a perfect record since they have already lost one of the 10 games they have played so far. The Texas team lost against Illinois by 85-78, but they are still among the favorites this season.
The Texas university is considered one of the strongest in the Big 12 Conference, and so far, it is backing that up with positive results. It accumulated six consecutive victories in the beginning of the campaign, maintaining its undefeated record throughout November. They are the team with the fewest points allowed (602) in their conference, and they have not lost in three games, which is a positive for this matchup.
The numbers of these teams can deceive us, since both have positive records, but we must not lose sight of the fact that the level of competition between their conferences is quite different and that, even if Louisiana were to arrive to this game undefeated, the chances of them defeating Texas are minimal.
Prediction: Texas Longhorns win by 15 points.
