  • The Under has cashed in each of Texas’ last 7 games

  • Texas won 78-76 when the teams last met in March 2019

Xavier Form

Xavier go into the Sweet 16 of March Madness in good form with seven wins in their last eight games.

The Musketeers closed out the regular season with three consecutive wins to develop some momentum going into the Big East tournament.

They then kept their good run going as they followed up an 89-84 win against DePaul with an 82-60 blowout of Creighton.

Xavier failed to complete the job though, as they were beaten 65-51 by #6 Marquette in the final.

The Musketeers have rebounded at the national championship though, following up a 72-67 win against Kennesaw State with an 84-73 victory over Pittsburgh.

Texas Form

Texas are riding a six-game win streak as they look to book their place in March Madness’ Elite Eight.

The Longhorns suffered back-to-back defeats to Baylor and TCU late in the regular season, but bounced back to close out with a 75-59 win over #3 Kansas.

They then followed that up by winning the Big 12 tournament, downing Oklahoma State 61-47 and #22 TCU 66-60 to set up another meeting with Kansas.

Texas repeated that regular season success against the #3 Wildcats, claiming the conference tournament crown with a 76-56 win.

The Longhorns have shown no signs of slowing down at March Madness, beating Colgate 81-61 and Penn State 71-66 to reach the Sweet 16.


Texas have been on a strong run over the past couple of weeks, winning and covering routinely.

Those trends are tipped to continue here as the Longhorns advance in March Madness.
