Kansas vs Oklahoma State, NCAA Basketball Betting Odds

15th ranked Kansas will travel south to Stillwater, Oklahoma to take on the Cowboys at noon this coming Saturday. The game will be televised on CBS. Kansas is coming off a big comeback win against rival Kansas State on Monday, which kept their Big 12 championship hopes alive.

With that win in their rear-view mirror, confidence will be running high for the Jayhawks who have won four of their last six and currently sit third in the Big 12 standings with a 10-5 conference record. Now they are only one game out of first place with three games remaining in the season, including Saturday’s matchup. Kansas is the favorite to win in all their remaining games, especially this one against OSU.

The last time these two teams met was on February 9th, when Kansas won 84-72.

Host Oklahoma State will play the role of underdog, as they are unranked and sit at the bottom of the Big 12 standings with a 3-11 conference record. They are coming into this game losing seven of their last eight, including a brutal 39 point loss to Kansas State Back on February 23rd.

Oklahoma State will place what little hopes it has on winning this game on junior Cameron McGriff, who leads the team in both points and rebounds. McGriff scored 22 points the last time these teams met, which was his second highest total on the season.

OSU’s chances of running up the score are nil as Kansas has been outstanding on defense, conceding an average of 70.6 points per game. Devon Dotson is the key shut down man, regularly keeping top opponents off the scoreboard. He leads the Jayhawks in steals with 39 on the season. On Monday Dotson held Kansas State’s leading scorer Barry Brown Jr to 4 points. Dotson also leads the Jayhawks in assists with an average of 3.6 per game.

On offense, the Jayhawks rely on the very steady Dedric Lawson, who has averaged 19 points and 10.1 rebounds per game this season. He is shooting 50.3% and leads the team with 513 points.

However, the Jayhawks are far from a one-man show; they often get big contributions from Lagerald Vick and Marcus Garrett. Garrett is on par with Dotson in terms of steals, averaging 1.7 per game and Vick is second to Lawson in all offensive categories. Adding to the mix is Udoka Azubuike, who at 7’1, 270 lbs lead the team in blocks with an average of 1.6 per game and has an FG% of 70.5.

While this game may look like a lock for Kansas, they will still have a lot of pressure on them to pull off a win, as the race for the Big 12 title is a close one. Kansas needs to win all of their remaining games and hope for a couple of losses from K-State and Texas Tech. Kansas has won the conference an astonishing 14 years in a row, so making it to 15 would be a significant point of pride for Head Coach Bill Self.
