Seeing the Seeds

Right now Kansas has the better draw in the NCAA Tournament. They are projected to be the No. 2 seed in the west region. The Sooners are slated to be the No. 5 seed in the Midwest region. That is not a bad seed for the Sooners, but a win at Kansas could bump them up a seed in the big dance.

Oklahoma vs Kansas Trends

The trends suggest that the Sooners is a tough team to bet on right now. They are 2-7 against the spread (ATS) on the road and they are just 1-9 ATS in the last ten games which includes some bad losses. The Sooners are also 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games when playing a team with a winning straight up record and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games overall. It is interesting to note that the Sooners have cashed in four of the last five trips to Kansas.

Oklahoma vs Kansas picks against the spread and predictions

The Sooners are slumping at the wrong time. They are just 6-8 in the Big 12 and they have lost eight of the last ten games. This includes a five game losing streak and they were swept against the Longhorns.  In short, they need this win. Kansas is a lock for the tournament. But they may have one eye on the game against top ranked Texas Tech who they play next. That game against Texas Tech will be the biggest game of the season. This number is inflated since the Sooners are struggling, but they will catch the Jayhawks napping and keep this game close. Take the Sooners and the points.
