Sooners Host Jayhawks in Big 12 Showdown

Oklahoma Sooners

Sooners and Jayhawks Jockey for Top Spot in Conference

The 5th-ranked Kansas Jayhawks and the 12th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners will battle on Tuesday at Lloyd Noble Center. Tip-off is set for 7 pm EST and ESPN will telecast this Big 12 heavyweight showdown.

Oddsmakers opened the Jayhawks as -1-point favorites versus the Sooners, while the game’s total opened at 171. The line now shows Oklahoma as a 1-point favorite now. The total is at 171.5.

Sooners Trae Young Is the Cog

Oklahoma was a 83-81 loser in their most recent outing on the road against their rival the Oklahoma State Cowboys. They failed to cover the -2-point spread as favorites.

Trae Young chose the Sooners over the Jayhawks when he committed. But, there’s not much time to get caught up in the hype of playing Kansas. The only thing the players are thinking about are snapping out of the recent two-game skid the Sooners have. Young is chipping in 30.5 points per game.

Young scored 48 in the loss to Oklahoma State.

Kansas has Two Game Lead over Sooners in Big 12

Kansas won its last outing, a 70-67 result against the Baylor Bears on January 20. They failed to cover in that game as a -8-point favorite.

Kansas may not have the highly talented lottery picks that they have had in recent years, but the Jayhawks still are in control of the Big 12. They are in position to claim a 14th consecutive regular-season conference title. They have a two-game lead.

Point guard Devonte’ Graham averages nearly 10-assist per game average and makes the Kansas offense go. He’s also Kansas’ best defender and figures to draw the task of slowing Young most of the game.
