Bet Today's CS-Bakersfield vs. Oklahoma Game

Bettors that like to hammer the favorites got mixed results on Thursday. While Virginia (-23), Kansas (-24.5), Indiana (-11) and Kentucky (-13.5) all covered as double-digit favorites, Duke (-10), Miami (-14) and UNC (-22.5) all failed to cover big numbers.

Down the stretch the Sooners had problems with opponents who liked to pressure on defense and that's what they'll see from the Roadrunners today. If Oklahoma has difficulties beating the press, then this game will be tight from start to finish.
