The Kansas Jayhawks (+950 to win the national title) are on a rampage, with no teams in the Big 12 seemingly capable of stopping them as of the moment. The Oklahoma Sooners will look to change that narrative, as they pay Bill Self and his boys a visit this coming weekend in Lawrence.
Betting Preview for the Oklahoma Sooners vs Kansas Jayhawks NCAA College Basketball Game on February 15 2020
Where: Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence
When: Saturday, February 15, 2020, 8:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: ESPN
Betting on the Oklahoma Sooners (15-8 Overall / 5-5 Conference)
The Sooners are definitely feeling great about themselves. They just scored their biggest win of the season, taking down the No. 13 West Virginia Mountaineers in Norman last Saturday, 69-59. Up next for them is a date with the Iowa State Cyclones at home this Wednesday before turning their attention to a rematch against Kansas in Lawrence. Oklahoma put up a fantastic effort, especially in rebounding the ball against West Virginia, which is one of the best in that department not only in the Big 12 but in the nation as well. The Sooners won the rebounding battle, 42-41 and also showed great defense in holding down the Mountaineers to just 31.6 percent shooting from the field. If the Sooners can do that against West Virginia, then they can duplicate that performance against Kansas, which outrebounded them in a 66-52 home loss on Jan. 14, 35-24.
The Sooners, who are averaging 70.9 points per game, have seen the total go under in all of their last five outings away from Norman.
Betting on the Kansas Jayhawks (20-3 Overall / 9-1-0 Conference)
The Jayhawks are in cruise control. They extended their win streak to eight games after defeating the TCU Horned Frogs on the road, 60-46, last Saturday. Kansas will deal with the Mountaineers first before taking on the Sooners again. Kansas boasts of one of the best guard-big man combos in the Big 12, at least. Guard Devon Dotson and center Udoka Azubuike have been playing great off each other. Dotson leads the Jayhawks in points with 18.0 per game, while Azubuike paces the team in both rebounds (9.7) and blocks (2.6) per game. Dotson wasn’t even needed by Kansas to defeat the Sooners in the two teams’ January meeting, as he sat that game due to a hip injury. Isaiah Moss filled in nicely for Dotson, scoring 20 points on 6-of-11 shooting from the field, while Azubuike had a double-double of 16 points and 14 rebounds to go with three blocks.
The Jayhawks are averaging 74.2 points per game and are 10-0 straight-up (SU) in their last 10 home games against Oklahoma.
Kansas wins, 77-63.
