With the Oklahoma Sooners riding a three-game losing streak and NCAA Tournament seeding implications heating up, pressure is on senior guard Austin Reaves to carry the load against Texas on Thursday night.
To be fair, Reaves has done his part offensively in each of the three losses — including back-to-back defeats to Oklahoma State. Reaves has 19, 22 and 25 points in his last three games. His player prop at DraftKings Sportsbook is set at 21.5 points on Thursday. He averages 17.6 points per game.
That’s the highest number on the board by far, with Longhorns teammates Courtney Ramey and Andrew Jones each at 13.5 points.
Jones is the team’s leading scorer at 14.8 points per game; Ramey is contributing 13.7 points per game.
In total, there are eight betting options for total points available at DraftKings, which gives bettors a full menu to consider.
Only a half-game separates these two teams in the Big 12 standings with Texas holding the slight lead. Oklahoma won the first meeting 80-79 on January 26. Reaves scored 23 points, while Jones managed 13 points despite shooting just 3-of-13 (0-of-7 from three) from the field, thanks to making 7-of-8 free throws.
The Longhorns enter Thursday night with an over/under NCAA Tournament seed set at 4.5 at DraftKings. Texas has traded wins and losses in its last four games, dropping matchups against West Virginia and Texas Tech while beating Kansas and Iowa State.
