Oklahoma looking for signature win

College Basketball Betting Trends
The Jayhawks are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games against a team with a winning home record.
The Sooners are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four Tuesday games and 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games following a cover.
Oklahoma has been a problem for Kansas over the year. The Sooners have covered the spread in four of the last five meetings against the Jayhawks. That includes a road cover for the Sooners back in January. Kansas has not been trustworthy on the road, going just 5-9 against the spread away from home. They are putting up under 70 points per game on the road as well. Oklahoma will be up for this rivalry game and I like the Sooners to pick up the win at home.
