It took triple overtime to separate these two when they met earlier in the season, and you have to believe that this one is going to be just as close. There are some solid arguments to be made for both sides in this one, and you have to figure out which of those arguments is the most compelling before you place what will hopefully be a winning ticket.

Why bet on the Kansas Jayhawks

The Kansas Jayhawks (20-4, 8-3) have clawed their way back to a #6 national ranking, but have their eyes set on even bigger and better things. They know that knocking off the #3 ranked team would probably move them up another notch or two in those standings. The Jayhawks are certainly in a good run of form, as they have won 4 straight, knocking off a pair of ranked teams in the process. They have had a number of big wins on the road this season, but have also taken a few hits along the way. Kansas took the earlier meeting with the Sooners, coming away with a 106-103 win in triple overtime in a game that was an instant classic. A similar type of performance here would likely get them the win. The Jayhawks are averaging 83.0 PPG, and are giving up 68.7 PPG.

Why bet on the Oklahoma Sooners

The Sooners (20-3, 8-3) ended last week with a disappointing loss at the hands of Kansas State, but they bounced back nicely this week with a 63-60 win over #24 ranked Texas. While the win was nice, it was not the sort of convincing performance that they would have hoped for, especially when playing on home court. A win is a win, though, and Oklahoma have made a habit of doing that in their own building this season. They have yet to register a loss on their home court this season, which makes a tough job for the Jayhawks even more difficult. The Sooners were unlucky not to get the win in the last meeting with Kansas, and they will be out looking for revenge on Saturday. The Sooners are averaging 84.1 PPG, and are giving up 71.4 PPG.


Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

Hoping for a game as good as their last meeting may be asking a little too much, but I still believe we are in for a great one here. I expect this to be another game that goes down to the wire, and I believe that Kansas will steal one on the road.
