25* Big 12 GAME OF THE YEAR on Kansas -3
Kansas vs. Oklahoma,
02/09/2013 16:00 EDT,
Score: 66 - 72
Point Spread: -3/-110 Kansas
The Kansas Jayhawks are going to be more motivated for a win Saturday than they have been all season. That's because they are coming off back-to-back losses with a home setback to Oklahoma State, and an embarrassing road defeat at TCU.
You can bet your bottom dollar that the Jayhawks will be playing angry and with a chip on their shoulder Saturday as they travel to face the Oklahoma Sooners. The Sooners are not playing well themselves, losing two straight and four of six coming in.
I look for Oklahoma to be overmatched once again in this one, just as it was the first time these teams got together on January 26th. Kansas rolled to a 67-54 home victory as a 12.5-point favorite in a game that wasn't even as close as the final score would indicate.
Kansas has won 10 straight meetings with Oklahoma dating back to 2006. Each of its last eight wins in this series have come by 9 points or more, including seven by 11 or more. This has been a one-sided series to say the least, and it will continue to be that way Saturday. Bet Kansas Saturday.
