15* Big 12 GAME OF THE DAY on Oklahoma -3
Kansas State vs. Oklahoma,
02/02/2013 18:00 EDT,
Score: 52 - 50
Point Spread: -3/-102 Oklahoma
The Oklahoma Sooners are one of the most underrated teams in the entire country. Oklahoma is off to a 14-5 start this season while going an impressive 10-5 ATS. Lon Kruger returned all five starters from last year's team and it's really starting to pay dividends.
Oklahoma is off to a 6-2 start in Big 12 play to really show what it is capable of. That includes a 74-71 road win at Baylor on Wednesday. Its only Big 12 losses have come on the road at Kansas and at Kansas State.
That road loss against the Wildcats in their first meeting this season puts the Sooners in revenge mode and wanting this game more. I like their chances of getting it considering they are 7-1 SU & 4-1 ATS at home this season, outscoring opponents by 13.8 points/game.
Oklahoma is 18-6 ATS when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%) over the last 3 seasons. Kansas State is 0-6 ATS in road games after a win by 15 points or more over the last 2 seasons. The Wildcats are 4-15 ATS in road games on Saturday games over the last 3 seasons. The Sooners are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. The Wildcats are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 road games. Take Oklahoma Saturday.
