Bet The #6 Kansas Jayhawks Because…
Kansas has gone 4 and 0 both straight up and against the spread in their last 4 games. That follows a terrible run where the Jayhawks went 2 and 3 straight up and 0 and 5 against the spread. The light bulb turned on during the 90 to 84 win over Kentucky on Jan. 30. It’s remained on since that time. Kansas beat Kansas State 77 to 59 on Feb. 3. The Jayhawks dominated TCU 75 to 56 on Feb. 6. In their last game they beat West Virginia by 10, 75 to 65, on Feb. 9.
Bet The #3 Oklahoma Sooners Because…
Oklahoma takes on the Jayhawks at home in the rematch. Kansas got somewhat lucky when they beat the Sooners 109 to 106 in overtime on Jan. 4. The Jayhawks were 7 point favorites in that matchup. Kansas had to outscore Oklahoma 37 to 33 in the second half just to put it into overtime. Oklahoma hasn’t lost a game in their building this season. The Sooners should be expected to be on top of their game this Saturday while facing their biggest rival in the Big 12 Conference.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
There’s another reason why Oklahoma looks great in the rematch on Feb. 13. Buddy Hield is without a doubt this year’s Naismith Award Winner. Hield averages 25 points and 5.6 boards per game. He’s as good as a player in college hoops today.
In the first game against Kanas, Hield was exceptional. He went 13 out of 23 from the field and 8 out of 15 from the three point line. Heild scored 46 points while grabbing 8 boards and dishing 7 assists. Heild won’t have to be that good on Saturday against the Jayhawks. The rest of Oklahoma’s team figures to do very well at home. Oklahoma looks like the team to back in this Big 12 battle.
