The Texas Longhorns are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS over their last five home games and 5-1 ATS in their past six games against Big 12 rival Baylor.
After losing two straight on the road, Texas will try to get back on track at home Wednesday night hosting the Bears. Texas was a 4-point favorite in Wednesday night's game in early Big 12 basketball betting.
From January 11 to February 4, Texas went on an impressive 7-0 SU and 4-3 ATS run that included outright upsets over West Virginia and Baylor on the road and an upset of Kansas at home.
But since that stretch, the Longhorns have lost some momentum with a 2-3 SU and ATS mark with an ugly 85-54 loss on Saturday on the road against Kansas. Texas has failed to make a statement over its recent road tests, but has another shot to pick up an impressive win Wednesday night.
Baylor's Big 12 schedule got off to a disastrous start as the Bears went 2-8 SU and ATS through their first 10 games of conference play. But this month, Baylor appears to have things on track, entering Wednesday's game on a 4-0 SU and 3-0-1 ATS run that was highlighted by an 88-75 road win over West Virginia last Saturday.
Since starting the season off 2-3 SU and 0-5 ATS on the road, Baylor is 3-1 SU and ATS over its last four road tilts.

On paper, these two teams are very evenly matched. Texas scores 76 points per game to Baylor's 75.9, Texas averages 41.9 rebounds per game to Baylor's 39.5, and the Longhorns allow 71 PPG compared to Baylor's 68.6.
The numbers suggest that this should be a close battle, but the last one wasn't as the Longhorns went into Baylor and defeated the Bears 74-60. The two teams are 3-3 SU against each other over their last six meetings, but Texas holds a 5-1 ATS edge in those games.
The total has gone OVER in four of the last five games between Baylor and Texas and in four of Baylor's last five games overall as well.
Considering the offensive makeup of both of these teams, another shootout in this series wouldn't come as a surprise.
