College Basketball Betting Trends

Oklahoma

The Sooners are 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. Oklahoma is 4-0-1 ATS in its last five road games.

Kansas

The Jayhawks are 6-2 ATS in their last eight versus the Big 12 Conference. Kansas is 1-6 ATS in its last seven games following an ATS win.

Prediction:

The Sooners have seven wins over top-100 programs this season and only a 20-point loss against Wisconsin on a neutral court is keeping it from being undefeated. Oklahoma is on the brink of cracking the top-25 and would certainly move in with an upset today, while even a strong showing in a loss could give it a shot. Kansas hasn't exactly dominated the competition most times out this season and I think this is another one that has a good shot at staying close until the end. I'm going with Oklahoma to stay within the number.
