The Longhorns dominated San Jose State 79-45 on Saturday behind Timmy Allen's 17 points. Tre Mitchell added 14 points for the Longhorns, with Andrew Jones hitting for 13 and Brock Cunningham scoring a career-high 10.

The Texas Longhorns are led in scoring by Timmy Allen who is averaging 13.3 points per contest. Tre Mitchell is the only other double digit scorer for the Longhorns as he sits at a 11.5 points per game average for Texas. 

Texas is averaging 76.8 points per game on 49.8% shooting from the field. The Longhorns are allowing other teams to score 57 points per game they also average 10.3 steals a game.

The Longhorns are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points. The Longhorns are also 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games as a home favorite. Lancers are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games and are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.

The Longhorns are the better program overall but this California Baptist team is growing behind Australian super guard Taran Armsrong. This line is just way too large against a Baptist team that will do all they can to protect their undefeated record. I think Texas wins this, but the game is way closer than 20 points. I’ll happily lay the points with California Baptist.
