Kansas Looking To Prove ATS Dominance

Bettors were wise to avoid Kansas for a good bulk of the season, but the Jayhawks have covered in their past four games despite facing an average closing spread of -9.5. The Jayhawks will look to cement their spot at the top of the Big 12 when they take on the Oklahoma Sooners in a potential game of the year Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Kansas is 14-2 SU in their past 16 games against Oklahoma.
  • The OVER is 8-2 in Oklahoma’s past 10 games at home.
  • Oklahoma is 4-10 ATS in their past 14 games.

Kansas and Oklahoma met earlier this season in what has been the best game of the season. A triple-overtime, instant classic that saw the game-wining bucket scored with under 20 seconds left in the final frame. Three Kansas players scored over 20 points in that game with Perry Ellis pacing the team as he tallied 27 points and 13 rebounds. For Oklahoma, Buddy Hield has a career game that saw the senior score 46 points.

Kansas enters Saturday’s contest on a four-game winning streak with the Jayhawks holding opponents to just 66 points. Two of those four games came against ranked teams with Kansas outscoring those opponents by a combined 16 points. Ellis has been showing up under the bright lights as the senior has averaged 18.2 points against ranked teams with five 20-plus point games against the best in the country.

Oklahoma has faced off against ranked opponents seven times this season with the Sooners going 5-2 SU this year, but just 3-4 ATS in that spot. There is no better 3-point shooting team in the nation than Oklahoma with the team hitting over 45 percent of their shots from beyond the arc with Hield (50 percent) leading the way.
