Against the Spread Pick
A win over Kansas would help Oklahoma’s case a lot for the NCAAs. On the road that will be a tough get but these teams are familiar with each other and anything can happen. Oklahoma has won their last two but their road performances have not been very good this season, just two wins. This year’s attack is not quite as prolific as they have been in the past but they are able to a lot of things well and if they can keep it close til late, they are a good free-throw shooting team – 77%. Kansas is enjoying a high level of success this season but they have been doing it a little differently than past years. This is an awesome defensive team, 7th in the country at just under 60ppg. When they need a bucket Devot Dotson is a guy who can shoot and get to the rim off the bounce with ease. They can beat you lots of ways. Take Kansas.
Over Under Pick
That amazing defense is a big reason why the Jayhawks have been a bad O/U team this season, just 7-16. They have usually been one of the top-scoring teams in the country and it is taking a while for the markets to adjust. Okahoma is not as good on defense though so I think this one gets over.
