Against The Spread Pick
The top-seed in the Big 12 tournament kicks off play as the Kansas Jayhawks take to the floor at the Sprint Center against the Oklahoma State Cowboys. OK State was able to escape by a lone-point over Iowa State in the opening round of the tournament. That win was the Cowboys fourth-in a row, as they look to knock-off the Jayhawks. Kansas hasn’t lost since January 11th and could be in prime position to make a deep run through both this tournament and the NCAA’s. The Jayhawks came out on top in both head-to-head meetings this season. The first of which was only decided by five-points. In their previous meeting, the spread was 15 points, and Kansas was easily able to cover in a 25-point win. Taking Kansas to cover is a must
Over Under Pick
Kansas has had plenty of successful performances all season, but there have also been points where they lacked a bit offensively. When these teams last faced-off they combined for a 141-point total. The Jayhawks weren’t going to be denied on that night as they cruised to 83 points. Oklahoma State combined with Iowa State for 143-points in their first-round match-up. The over is the right move here.
