Sports Odds & Free ATS College Basketball Picks: West Virginia Mountaineers vs Kansas Jayhawks

#9 West Virginia Mountaineers vs. #3 Kansas Jayhawks

Mountaineers: 20-5 (5-2 V)
Jayhawks: 22-3 (11-1 H)
When: 9:00 PM ET, Monday, February 13, 2017
Where: Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence, Kansas

The 9th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers will attempt to replicate what they accomplished three weeks ago as they prepare to meet the third-ranked Kansas Jayhawks in a Big 12 conference showdown set to be staged on Monday at the Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kansas.

After beating then No. 1 Baylor in early January, the Mountaineers then went on to prevail 85-69 against the then 2nd ranked Jayhawks two weeks later. Both wins were equally impressive as West Virginia outscored the two schools by an average of 18.5 points. Esa Ahmad scored a career-high 27 points in the win.

Since the win, the Mountaineers have won four of their last five games with their latest, an 85-66 rout over Kansas State on Saturday. West Virginia is third in the Big 12 two games behind the Jayhawks so another win against them would obviously be huge. However, since joining the conference in 2012, WVU never won a game at Kansas losing all five contests.

Since the loss to WVU, the Jayhawks proceeded to win four of five with the lone loss at home versus Iowa State 10 days ago. They let a 14-point lead slip away as the Cyclones came back in the second to finally send the game into overtime. ISU eventually prevailed 92-89. The Jayhawks are 1 game in front on Baylor in Big 12 play, a team they will face next on Saturday.

BetOnline has the Kansas listed as 5-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 158½.
