College Basketball Betting Trends
The Jayhawks are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Kansas is 2-5 ATS in its last seven Tuesday games.
The Sooners are 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine Tuesday games. Oklahoma is 0-6 ATS in its last six home games.
After facing a top five defense nationally Saturday afternoon, the Jayhawks should find a lot less resistance tonight at Oklahoma. While the Sooners have been respectable this season, they are running into a Kansas team that will be a little salty after the home loss. I think Kansas is in a great spot here to get the win and cover the spread in the process.
