Kansas vs. Ok State Prediction
Will the Oklahoma State Cowboys blow out the Kansas Jayhawks by enough points to cover the massive point spread when the Big 12 rivals meet at 12:00 p.m. ET on Saturday?
ODDSMAKERS LIKE: Oklahoma State. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cowboys are 41-point home favorites to beat the Jayhawks. As for the total, the number hit the board at 70 but has been bet down a full point to 69.
THE PUBLIC LIKES: Kansas. Apparently Oklahoma State is laying too many points because 56% of betting tickets are on Kansas as of Saturday morning.
HISTORICAL TRENDS LIKE: Oklahoma State and the over. The home team is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two tams while Kansas is 3-11 against the number in its last 14 games versus Oklahoma State. The Jayhawks have also failed to cover in six of their last seven games versus the Cowboys in Stillwater and the favorite has covered in 10 of the last 13 meetings. The over, meanwhile, is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Stillwater.
WHO WE LIKE: Kansas…begrudgingly. This is more of a play against Oklahoma State than it is for Kansas. I just don't know what the Cowboys' motivation is. Obviously they have enough firepower to beat a horsecrap KU team by 80, but their season is essentially over. They're not playing for anything after losing last week to Kansas State. So why lay over 40 points on a team that might not care?
The Jayhawks are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games in November while the Cowboys are just 1-4 against the number in their last five games overall. Oklahoma State is also just 1-4 at the betting window in its last five games played in the month of November.
