Kansas Looking for Revenge vs WVU

Kansas vs West Virginia

Two top 25 teams tip off tonight in college hoops action when the West Virginia Mountaineers, owners of four covers in their last five games, visit the Kansas Jayhawks. The Jayhawks, who opened as 7-point favorites, will try to make it four wins in a row tonight, both SU and ATS.

Shark Bites
  • West Virginia is 5-2 SU in its last seven games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of Kansas' last nine games when favored by 7.0 or less.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of West Virginia's last five games as an underdog of 7.0 or more.

This will be the second game between the teams this year, as West Virginia got the better of Kansas on January 12, beating them 74-63, easily covering the spread as 1-point underdogs. The Mountaineers forced 22 turnovers in the game and were led by forward Devin Williams who put up 17 points along with 12 rebounds. That game was at home, however, and this series hasn’t been kind to the visitor, as the home team is 6-0 SU in the last six games between the teams.

Being favorites of 7-points or more has treated Kansas well, as they’ve gone 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games in that spot. Another trend favoring the Jayhawks is that they’re a tough beat when playing with two days off between games, going 9-2 SU in their last 11 games in that situation.
