Kansas vs. West Virginia College Basketball Prediction
The Jayhawks are 13-6 against the spread in their last 19 road games, but I simply don’t trust them right now. They’ve manhandled teams like TCU and Kansas State in conference play, then shrink when they’ve faced some of the better Big 12 opponents, including Tennessee, Oklahoma and Baylor. Even a middling Oklahoma State team beat KU in Stillwater in mid-January.
The home team is 15-5 against the spread in the last 20 meetings between these two teams, while the Jayhawks are just 2-5 against the number in their last seven games overall. Kansas is also winless at the betting window at 0-4 ATS in its last four games coming off a win and failed to cover in 13 of its last 16 games coming off a win of more than 20 points.
