Who We Like: Drew Sharper has the side covered for this game but I want to focus on the total. Kansas outlasted a shorthanded Kansas State team in the semi-finals but the Jayhawks will be tested greatly by West Virginia's smothering defense. The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams and it has cashed in five of Kansas' last seven games when facing an opponent with a winning record. The same can be said on the other side, as the under is 5-2 in the Mountaineers' last seven games versus a team with a winning record. Conference tournament games tend to be played at a slower pace, which provides under bettors with value.
