A big battle in the Big 12 tips off at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin where Texas hosts Iowa State with revenge on its mind from an 89-86 loss suffered three weeks ago in Ames. Life on the road has not been kind for ISU this season where they enter with a 1-6 ATS mark when facing sub .700 opposition. Compounding matters is a 1-4 ATS mark for the visiting team in this series. Look for the Longhorns to improve to 8-2 ATS in games against opponents off a win this season. The Playbook Advantage in this game is on Texas.

Of course, they got things figured out when it mattered - and rewarded the bettors that had faith in them in March and early April very handsomely.
