How to Bet West Virginia Vs Kansas Jayhawks

There are some really great match-ups taking place on Tuesday night, which means you have a plethora of great betting options available to you. These two teams are evenly matched, which will make wagering on this one a pretty exciting challenge. The Jayhawks will likely be in as a home court favorite, which means you are likely going to get the Mountaineers at a pretty tasty price.

Why Bet on the West Virginia Mountaineers

The Mountaineers (19-4, 8-2) are coming off what has to be their best season of the week after registering back to back wins against ranked opponents. They started things off with an 81-76 win over Iowa State, and then capped off a spectacular week with a resounding 80-69 win over Baylor. Those wins took the Mountaineers to the top of the conference, and now sees them sitting as the #14 team in the nation. They know that they are going to be in for another tough one on Tuesday, especially since the Jayhawks will be out for revenge after losing to West Virginia earlier in the season. The Mountaineers are averaging 81.0 PPG, and are giving up 65.4 PPG.

Why Bet on the Kansas Jayhawks

Kansas (19-4, 7-3) are not a team that likes to lose, and you can bet that they are still smarting after taking a hit versus West Virginia earlier in the season. That loss sparked a little period of instability for Kansas, but they seem to have pulled out of that, and are coming into this game on a 3-game winning streak. The Jayhawks would appear to be a much better bet against the Mountaineers this time around, especially since Kansas is yet to drop a game on home court this season. They already have 3 wins against ranked opponents in their own building this season, and are sure to be confident of making it 4 on Tuesday night. The Jayhawks are averaging 83.3 PPG, and are giving up 69.9 PPG so far this season.

Expert Betting Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Mountaineers have a very tough task on their hand with this one, as every team that heads into Allen Fieldhouse seems to come away with nothing. West Virginia can hang with Kansas, but I believe they will come up just short in the end.
