BHS2020 Kansas hosts Oklahoma in Big 12 Opener

Take #821 Oklahoma Sooners +8 over Kansas Jayhawks (9:00 PM ET Wednesday, January 2)  WINNER!

Big 12 play begins tonight with a marquee matchup in Kansas where the Jayhawks host the Oklahoma Sooners. Tip-off is set for 9 PM ET at Allen Fieldhouse where the Jayhawks are -8 point favorites. The total is 150.5.

Kansas (11-1, 6-6 ATS, 8-0 home) is coming in off an 87-63 win over Eastern Michigan. Udoka Azubuike returned to the lineup following a three week injury (ankle) related absence with 23 points.  Oklahoma (11-1, 10-1 ATS, 3-0 road) has won seven straight but hasn’t played since December 21. They’ll be rested but could be rusty as well.

*Key Trends: The OVER has cashed in four of the last six meetings (4-1-1) in Kansas. The UNDER is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall.

The Sooners are 4-1 to the OVER in their past five games against a team with a winning home record. The Jayhawks are 5-1-1 to the OVER in their last seven vs. the Big 12 and 12-2 to the high side in their last 14 following an ATS win. Obscure I know, but helpful nonetheless.

Oklahoma is 4-0-1 ATS in its past five road games and 10-1-1 against the number in its last 12 overall. However OU is 2-9 ATS in its last 11 against the Big 12. Kansas is 6-2 ATS in its last eight conference games. The UNDERDOG is 5-2 ATS last seven meetings.

If you’re considering a cautious moneyline play on Kansas, consider that the Jayhawks have won all eight games at Allen Fieldhouse this season and are 116-8 in Big 12 home games during Coach Bill Self’s 16-year tenure.

Wednesday, January 2 Leans:

West Virginia/Texas Tech OVER 137
Butler -8.5 over Georgetown
Cornell +8.5 over Wake Forest
Tulsa/Houston OVER 135
