NBA Tuesday Preview & Free Pick- Charlotte Hornets at Los Angeles Lakers

LA Lakers

The Charlotte Hornets continue their extended seven-game road trip with a second-straight game at the Staples Center to face the Los Angeles Lakers this Tuesday night in a prime time tip at 10:30 p.m. (ET) on NBA TV. BetAnySports has opened Charlotte as a four-point favorite and the total has been set at 215.

The Hornets current 2-13 straight-up slide has dropped them to 25-34 on the year. Their latest loss was at the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers in a 124-121 setback in overtime on Sunday as 11-point road underdogs. They have been able to cover against the spread in three of their last four games and while the total did go OVER BetAnySports’ closing 212.5-point line against the Clippers, it had stayed UNDER in six of their previous seven games.

Kemba Walker continues to lead Charlotte in scoring with 22.7 points per game and he led the way on Sunday with 34 points while going 6-for-10 from three-point range. The Hornets have had issues closing out games all season long and Sunday’s loss marked the 18th time this season that they had a lead in the fourth quarter and still lost the game. Defensively, they are ranked 10th in the league in points allowed (104.4), but they have allowed more than that average in 14 of their last 16 games.

Lakers Looking to End Skid

The Lakers come into this inter-conference clash with a four-game losing streak both SU and ATS after losing to San Antonio 119-98 on Sunday as 12-point underdogs at home. They are 19-41 SU on the year with a 27-32-1 record ATS. Los Angeles has failed to cover BetAnySports’ closing spread in five of its last seven home games and the total has gone OVER in seven of its last 10 games overall. The Lakers are 12-14-1 ATS at home this season.

Lou Williams is now with Houston following last week’s trade, so look for players such as D’Angelo Russell and Brandon Ingram to lead the way in the scoring department. Russell posted 29 points in last Friday’s loss to Oklahoma City and Ingram led the way against the Spurs with 22 points. The real issue is who is actually playing any defense. Los Angeles has allowed an average of 116.3 points over its last six games.

I am not quite sure which team gets the SU win on Tuesday since both of these ball clubs have forgotten how to win, but I am betting that they combine to take the total OVER BetAnySports’ current 215-point betting line.

Canadiens Welcome Islanders on Thursday

Canadiens Hockey


Habs Look to Continue Winning Streak

After winning only their second game in the past eight on Tuesday versus the Rangers, the Montreal Canadiens (32-20-8) hope to build on their recent victory against the other New York hockey club. Since firing head coach Michel Therrien and hiring Claude Julien, the Habs are 1-1.

Carey Price (2.44 goals against average, .918 save percentage), who had been in slump since mid-December, has returned to form in the last two games, posting a .936 save percentage. The Habs will rely on Price’s resurgence going forward, as the Canadiens have dropped to 12th in team offense (2.8 goals per game) and have scored more than two goals only twice in their last eight games.

The New York Islanders (28-21-10), meanwhile, have found their own resurgence since firing head coach Jack Capuano and replacing him with assistant general manager Doug Weight. Since the move, the Islanders have pulled themselves out of last place in the Eastern Conference, and have gone 11-4-2. They’re now tied with Florida and Boston for the final wildcard position in the East. Look for team captain John Tavares (22 goals, 28 assists) to lead his team offensively against the Canadiens (7:30 PM ET on SNE).

Warriors Host Clippers in “Second Half” Tip-Off

Golden State Warriors


GSW Playing at Higher Level than Record Season

The Golden State Warriors went into the All-Star break as –170 favorites to regain the NBA championship. They’ll start the unofficial second half of the regular season this Thursday when they host the Los Angeles Clippers, tipping off at 10:30 PM ET.

Oddsmakers have the Warriors as 13-point favorites. The total is sitting at 230 now.

Bet on basketball at Bodog and get a free 100% bonus.

This year’s Warriors team (47-9 SU, 27-27-2 ATS) is performing at an even higher level than last year’s 73-game winners. Kevin Durant (+8.1 BPM) alongside Stephen Curry (+6.5 BPM) has taken away from each former MVP’s raw stats. They have added addition by subtraction as it’s made the Dubs tougher overall. Zaza Pachulia (+3.2 BPM) has also proved to be a capable  replacement for departed center Andrew Bogut.

Health hasn’t been very kind to the Clippers (35-21 SU, 29-27 ATS). Chris Paul (+9.8 BPM), is targeting a March 1 return after having surgery on his torn left thumb. Los Angeles is 6-7 SU and 7-6 ATS since Paul went on the shelf, although they did win their last four games straight up and against the spread after moving Ray Felton (–0.4 BPM) to the bench and putting Luc Mbah a Moute (+0.6 BPM) back in the starting lineup.

New-Look New Orleans Pelicans Host Rockets on Thursday

New Orleans Pelicans Basketball


Can Cousins Make Difference for Pelicans

The New Orleans Pelicans just hosted the All-Star Game and saw their very own Anthony Davis win the MVP. But the celebration was brief because the next day, the Pelicans made a huge trade, acquiring DeMarcus Cousins from the Sacramento Kings. Cousins is expected to play his first game on Thursday when the Pelicans host the Houston Rockets.

Oddsmakers have the Rockets as 4-point favorites and the total is 228.

Bet on basketball at Bovada and get a 50% bonus.

The Rockets are sitting fourth in the Western Conference, with James Harden among the front-runners for the MVP award. Harden is third in the league in scoring, first in assists and is averaging over eight rebounds a game. The Rockets rank behind only Golden State in scoring.

The Pelicans are 11th place in the West and only two games out of eighth. The trade for Cousins will hopefully push them into the postseason. Cousins and Davis are fourth and fifth in the league, respectively, in scoring, while Davis is sixth in rebounding and Cousins is 11th. They both played at the University of Kentucky, and the Pelicans are hoping that connection pays off.

Houston is 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings with the Pelicans, who lost 122-100 to the Rockets at home on December 16. Harden had a triple-double with 29 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds.

In their last action, Villanova was a 92-70 winner on the road against Pirates. They covered the -6.5-point spread as favorites. Villanova has won a program-record 48 in a row at home.

Tar Heels Host Louisville With 1-Game ACC Lead

Tar Heels Sports


Track Meet Expected With Up-Tempo Styles

The fans at Dean Smith Center will witness the Louisville Cardinals and the North Carolina Tar Heels run up and down the court they take their seats on Wednesday. The up-tempo style of both teams should lead to an entertaining game. Even with the 65-41 romp past Virginia on Saturday night the Tar Heels rank fifth nationally in scoring with 86.9 points per game.

North Carolina holds a one-game lead on Louisville (22-5, 10-4) and Duke in ACC regular season play. Duke will be wrapping up its contest at Syracuse at about the time of tip-off in Chapel Hill.  Under Roy Williams, the Tar Heels are 10-2 at the Smith Center in Top 10 matchups. This is the first matchup against an ACC opponent since a game with Duke five years ago.

Oddsmakers opened the Tar Heels as -4.5-point favorites versus the Cardinals, while the game's total opened at 153.

Louisville was a 94-90 winner in their most recent outing at home against Hokies. They failed to cover the -12.5-point spread as favorites. Louisville often loves a faster tempo by playing a full-court defense. It is something that might feed into North Carolina's preferences. The Cardinals haven't reached the level defensively that Pitino would like to see on a regular basis.

Duke Faces Syracuse Tonight on the Road in ACC Action

Duke Basketball


Duke Has Won 7 Straight

The Duke Blue Devils and the Syracuse Orange will make history on Wednesday when they meet at Carrier Dome. It will be the first time in D-1 history two coaches with 1,000 career wins face each other.  Mike Krzyzewski is the leader with 1,065 wins. Jim Boeheim is 2nd with 1,001 wins with an asterisk. That total includes 101 wins vacated by the NCAA because the Orange violated NCAA rules from 2004-07 and 2010-12.

Oddsmakers opened the Blue Devils as -4-point favorites versus the Orange, while the game's total opened at 149.

Syracuse was a 71-65 loser in its last match on the road against Yellow Jackets. They failed to cover the -4-point spread as favorites. Tonights game is also huge for Syracuse. The team is reeling with three consecutive losses that have put them on the NCAA Tournament bubble. They have played far better at home than on the road. They are 14-3 at the Dome and 2-9 on road or neutral courts. Duke is Syracuse's last best chance to notch a quality win for its tournament resume unless it makes a run in the ACC Tournament.

Duke was a 99-94 winner in their most recent outing at home against Demon Deacons. They failed to cover the -11.5-point spread as favorites. The Blue Devils have won seven straight games. They are 5-0 since Coach K returned after missing most of January following back surgery. Duke has overcome several obstacles this season. The list includes injuries to key players, Krzyzewski's absence, and the ongoing scrutiny of guard Grayson Allen's absurd conduct. The Dukies have pulled within one game of North Carolina in the ACC standings.

NCAAB Tuesday Pick- South Carolina at Florida Gators

Florida Gators Athletics

Cocks' Lost 3 of Last 4 Games

The South Carolina Gamecocks and the Florida Gators help get Tuesday’s college basketball betting action underway at BetAnySports with a 7 p.m. (ET) tip at Exactech Arena. As one of ESPN’s featured matchups of the night, Florida comes into this SEC tilt as a 8-point favorite. Oddsmakers opened the Gators at 10-point favorites. The total is down to 138 after opening at 142.

The Gamecocks have now lost three of their last four games straight-up. They got upended by Vanderbilt 71-62 this past Saturday as two-point road favorites. The Cocks' have failed to cover against the spread in their last five games. This makes them fall to 10-14 ATS on the year. South Carolina is now 10-4 in SEC play,  and have an overall record of 20-7. The total stayed UNDER BetAnySports’ 137-point line in Saturday’s loss. The total went OVER in the Gamecocks’ previous five outings.

South Carolina has built a reputation this season as being one of the better defensive teams in the nation. With a points-allowed average of 64.1 going into this bad stretch, that average has ballooned all the way to 78.4 points over its last five games. Offensively, Sindarius Thornwell leads the team in scoring with 20.2 PPG and he ended Saturday’s loss with 21 points and six rebounds. South Carolina is averaging 73 points a game this year.

Gators have won 8-Straight Games Straight Up and are 6-2 ATS

The Gators were able to extend their current SU winning streak to eight games with Saturday’s 57-52 victory on the road against Mississippi State. Florida could not cover BetAnySports’ closing 10-point spread as a favorite, but it is still a very profitable 6-2 ATS during this winning streak. The total stayed UNDER the closing 147-point line and it has stayed UNDER in five of its last seven games. The Gators return to Gainesville with a 6-4 record ATS in 10 previous home games.

Defense was the name of the game this past Saturday, but Florida lit things up on the scoreboard last Tuesday with a 114-95 victory against Auburn as a 10-point favorite on the road. The Gators are averaging 79.5 points this season led by a trio of players scoring at least 11 PPG. Chris Chiozza and KeVaughn combined for 25 points in Saturday’s win and senior guard Canyon Berry, who leads the team with 13.2 PPG, posted 30 points in last Tuesday’s romp.

Both of these teams are among the best in the SEC this season, but I have to go with Florida both SU and ATS this Tuesday night given its current form.

NHL Odds: Oilers-Blackhawks at the United Center

Blackhawks Hockey

Oilers Looking for First Playoff Spot in Decade

Two of the better teams in the Western Conference will meet this Saturday (7 PM ET, WGN) when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Edmonton Oilers. The Blackhawks sit comfortably in second place in the Central Division, while the Oilers are in good shape for an automatic playoff berth in the Pacific – their first playoffs in over a decade.

Oddsmakers have the

The Hawks are no strangers to the postseason. They’ve won three Stanley Cups since Joel Quenneville took over as head coach in 2008; this year’s team is third on the Cup futures market at +700, featuring the 1-2 goaltending punch of Corey Crawford (.918 save percentage) and Scott Darling (.927 SV%). However, Chicago could be overvalued in this spot, with mediocre results in the Corsi and Fenwick advanced stats.

Edmonton is a Top-10 team in both those categories. The Oilers (+2000) have been playing in relative anonymity ever since losing Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Final to the Carolina Hurricanes, but their collection of high draft picks is finally paying off. The first overall pick in 2015, center Connor McDavid, is already an All-Star. But even with his help, there’s a chance that goalie Cam Talbot (.920 SV%) could burn out after starting nearly every game.

NHL Odds: Sens Visit the Devils this Thursday

Betting on Ottawa Hockey

Blackhawks Look to Hold off Senators

Sitting second in the Atlantic Division, the Ottawa Senators (29-19-6) will look to capitalize on a Devils team that finds themselves in 12th place in the East. The Senators are eight points out of a playoff spot. The Sens are coming off of a 3-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabers on Tuesday night. But following the return of their starting goalie, Craig Anderson (2.37 goals against average, .926 save percentage) and another dominating offensive season from defenseman Erik Karlsson (8 goals, 38 assists), Ottawa will lean on their stars as they attempt to regain their winning stride against the Devils.

The New Jersey Devils (24-22-10) are coming off of a 3-2 win against the last-place Colorado Avalanche. The Devils are 1-1 following their league-mandated bye week and sport a 5-4-1 record over their last 10 games. New Jersey has been mediocre this season. As they’re currently 29th in team offense (2.27 goals scored per game). They 17th in team defense (2.82 goals against per game). They’ll depend heavily on goaltender Cory Schneider (2.66 goals against average, .912 save percentage) to keep the Sens off the board and give their offense a chance to score.

NCAAB Odds: Wisconsin Visits Michigan in Big Ten Battle

Michigan Big Ten Sports

Michigan is a 2-Point Fave over Wisky at Home

The Big Ten has seen better times on the hardcourt, but the top team in the conference will be in action Thursday night (7 PM ET, ESPN) when the Wisconsin Badgers visit the Michigan Wolverines. The No. 11-ranked Badgers lead the way at 21-4 SU and 11-11 ATS; the Wolverines are in the middle of the pack at 16-9 SU and 9-13 ATS.

Oddsmakers have the unranked Wolverines listed as a 2-point favorite and the total is at 125.

Bet on college basketball at Bodog and get a free 100% bonus.

Although Michigan has fallen to +20000 on the March Madness futures market, this program has some things going for them – especially on offense, where senior guard Derrick Walton (+9.6 BPM) is putting up 17.6 points and 4.4 assists per 40 minutes while hitting 44.2% of his 3-point attempts. Walton was 3-of-5 from behind the arc in last month’s 68-64 loss to Wisconsin (–11.5) at the Kohl Center.

The Badgers (+3300 to win March Madness) may be the best the Big Ten has to offer, but they’re 2-6 ATS in their last eight games, starting with that narrow victory over Michigan. They’re also coming off a 66-59 loss to the Northwestern Wildcats, once again coughing up the cash as 11.5-point home favourites. Shooting just 66.6% from the free-throw line hasn’t helped their cause.

Duke Travels to Virginia in Key ACC Hoops Action

Duke Basketball


Duke Has Won 5 Straight Since Coack K Return

The Duke Blue Devils and the Virginia Cavaliers will meet on Wednesday  at John Paul Jones Arena on the University of Virginia's campus. Both teams are near the top of the ACC standings. Both teams are in a four-way tie for 2nd place with Florida State and Louisville. They are trailing North Carolina. Wednesday's game will be televised at 9 pm EST on ESPN2.

The Blue Devils have reeled off five straight victories. This includes beating ACC leader and bitter rival North Carolina last week. It looked as though Duke was heading downward after losing three of four games. Coach K returned to the sidelines and got the Blue Devils back on track.

Oddsmakers opened the Cavaliers as -4-point favorites versus the Blue Devils, while the game's total opened at 129.5.

Virginia was a 80-78 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Virginia Tech Hokies. They failed to cover the -5-point spread as favorites. Virginia guard London Perrantes is coming off of a 22-point game against the Hokies. He had to take a career-high 22 shots to manage that though. Perrantes will need to continue to pace the Cavaliers against a Blue Devils team who will be keying on the senior.

Duke won its last outing, a 64-62 result against Clemson Tigers on February 11. They failed to cover in that game as a -11-point favorite. Duke guard Luke Kennard comes into the game averaging 20 points and five rebounds for the season. His ability to make outside shots along with his  ability to penetrate inside could provide a challenge for Virginia. UVA struggled against Virginia Tech's dribble penetration.

Northwestern Hosts Maryland Wednesday

Northwestern Wildcats Sports


Cats on Verge of First NCAA Tourney Bid

The Maryland Terrapins and the Northwestern Wildcats will square of on Wednesday when they meet at Welsh-Ryan Arena. The game is set for a 7 pm EST tip-off and will be televised by the Big Ten Network.

An NCAA tournament invitation is tantalizingly close for Northwestern. They could further cement its post-season aspirations by beating Maryland or at least playing them to a very close game.

It's also a very most important week of the season for the Terps. They have Wisconsin coming up on Sunday in Madison, and if they lose to both teams they could seriously hurt their chances to make the Dance.

Oddsmakers opened the Wildcats as -3-point favorites versus the Terrapins, while the game's total opened at 137.

Northwestern was a 66-59 winner in its last match on the road against the Wisconsin Badgers. They covered the +11.5-point spread as underdogs. It was a signature victory for Northwestern. They entered that game on a two-game losing streak. They were also without leading scorer Scottie Lindsey for the third straight game. Bryant McIntosh stepped up with a game-high 25 points plus seven assists. The Wildcat defense repeatedly double-teamed and held Badger big man Ethan Happ to 9 points.

In their last action, Maryland was a 86-77 winner at home against the Ohio State Buckeyes. They covered the -7.5-point spread as favorites. Maryland is coming off its best offensive outing since late December with last Sunday's 86-77 victory over Ohio State . Four Terrapins score in double figures including a game-high 19 from Anthony Cowan.

Los Angeles was a 88-72 winner in its last matchup on the road against the Utah Jazz.

NBA Odds: Beleaguered Knicks Travel to Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City Thunder

Thunder Go as Westbrook Goes

The New York Knicks are making more news for their off-court troubles these days than they are on the court. They’re struggling on the court as they have most of the season. They’ll hit the road on Wednesday to face an Oklahoma City Thunder team that’s also slumping.

Bet on basketball at Bovada and get a 50% bonus.

The Knicks are 25th in the league in points allowed. This poor defense offsets their 12th-place ranking in points scored. Despite being the subject of trade rumors and a feud with Phil Jackson, Carmelo Anthony is putting up over 23 points a night. Kristaps Porzingis has had a few injury problems this season as well. With all the injuries he’s still averaging over 18 points and seven rebounds.

The Thunder continue to go as Russell Westbrook goes. He continues to average a triple-double with 30.9 points (first in the NBA), 10.4 rebounds and 10.1 assists. A lack of three-point shooting puts pressure on the Thunder to drive into a packed lane as they’re 29th in the league from downtown; only Chicago is worse.

Oklahoma City is 7-3 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Knicks, but they’ve struggled of late. The Thunder have lost three of their last four with the losses coming by an average of 13.6 points per game.

Toronto Maple Leafs


Hot Islanders Can Pass Leafs' In Standings

The New York Islanders and the Toronto Maple Leafs battle on Tuesday at Air Canada Centre. The Islanders have positioned themselves to challenge for a playoffs spot, and it may be the Maple Leafs spot they get.

The Islanders have gone 10-3-2 in the past 15 games and have moved within one point of the Maple Leafs (25-18-11), who are in a playoff position.

Oddsmakers opened the Maple Leafs as -128-moneyline favorites versus the Islanders, while the game's total opened at 5.5.

Kentucky Hosts Tennessee In Key SEC Battle

Kentucky Wildcats


Cats and Vols in Must Win Games

The Tennessee Volunteers and the Kentucky Wildcats are both in must win situations on Tuesday when they battle at Rupp Arena. Tennessee needs a key win to build a case for an NCAA Tournament bid. Kentucky has to win to keep pace for the SEC regular season championship. They are in a 3-way tie with South Carolina and Florida atop the SEC.

Tennessee defeated Kentucky 82-80 in Knoxville on January 24th, handing the Wildcats their first loss in Southeastern Conference play. Vols coach Rick Barnes knows it will be a much different story tonight in Lexington.

Oddsmakers opened the Wildcats as -13-point favorites versus the Volunteers, while the game's total opened at 159.5.

Kentucky was a 67-58 winner in its last match on the road against the Alabama Crimson Tide. They covered the -7.5-point spread as favorites. No. 13 Kentucky is trying to find its way. The Tennessee loss sent the Wildcats into a skid in which they lost three of the next four games. Kentucky is 3-3 since that loss. In two of those victories they have blown 20-point leads in the final eight minutes.

Tennessee lost its last outing, a 76-75 result against Georgia Bulldogs on February 11. They failed to cover in that game as a -4.5-point favorite. Tennessee may still be reeling from Saturday's 76-75 loss to Georgia. They blew a 14-point lead late in the game. It's been a terrible trend as the Volunteers held leads of 19, 15, 13 and 13 only to lose to Mississippi State, North Carolina, Arkansas and Ole Miss, respectively.

BetAnySports has listed Cleveland as a 4.5-point road favorite and the total line for this inter-conference clash has been set at 218.

Cleveland is coming off Saturday’s 125-109 victory at home against Denver. The Cavs were a 12-point favorite with BetAnySports. This is following last Thursday’s 118-109 road loss to Oklahoma City. The linesmakers had the Cavs as a slight 1.5-point underdog. The Cavaliers are now 5-1 straight-up and against the spread in their last six games. The total has gone OVER in all six of those contests. They will head back on the road with a 10-15 record ATS this season.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving posted 27 points in Saturday’s win. Kevin Love adding 16 points and nine rebounds to the winning cause. Love has already been ruled out for Tuesday night with a sore knee. James continues to lead the team in both points (25.8) and assists (8.8). Irving is a close second in scoring with 24.4 points per game. Cleveland is ranked third in the NBA in scoring with an average of 111.2 PPG.

TWolves' Fighting for Playoff Spot

Minnesota is just 21-34 SU this season with a 23-32 record ATS, but it is still within striking distance of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference heading into this weekend’s All-Star break. The Timberwolves hammered Chicago 117-89 on Sunday after doubling up the Bulls 34-17 in the first quarter of that game. Minnesota covered BetAnySports’ closing seven-point spread to improve to 14-17 SU (15-16) at home this season. The total has gone OVER in the Timberwolves last nine games.

Both Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins came up big in Sunday’s win. Towns went 8-for-11 from the field as part of his 22-point night and Wiggins led all scorers with 27 points to go along with six rebounds and four assists. Towns leads the team in scoring this season with an average of 23.7 PPG as part of Minnesota’s team scoring average of 104.6 points. Wiggins is averaging 22.6 PPG and shooting 45.8 percent from the field.

Cleveland has been playing with better consistency as of late, but without Love in the lineup this game could remain close right down to the final possession. My “best bet” pick for this one is the OVER on BetAnySports’ 218-point total line given the strong trends for this play with both of these teams right now.

Hawks and Trail Blazers Meet Monday on TNT

Trail Blazers Basketball

Hawks are 10-5 ATS Last 10 Games on the Road

The Atlanta Hawks and the Portland Trail Blazers will meet on Monday when they meet at Moda Center. The game will be televised nationally by TNT and tip-0ff is scheduled for a little after 10:30 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Trail Blazers as -3-point favorites versus the Hawks, while the game's total opened at 215.

Both these teams will be trying to get back on track Monday night. The Hawks have lost two of its last three games. That includes an excruciating 108-107 loss at Sacramento on Friday night. Tim Hardaway felt he was fouled on an attempted game-winning shot just before the final horn.  The Hawks failed to cover the -2-point spread as favorites, while the total score (215) made winners of OVER bettors.

Portland has dropped four of its last six games. They failed to cover the -3-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (231) was profitable news for OVER bettors. Portland's defense has been a problem most of the season. Lately it has taken an even further step back. In their last nine games, six opponents have scored 108 points or more. Five teams have shot 47 percent or better from the field.

Kansas Jayhawks Host West Virginia Monday Night

Kansas Jayhawks Sports


Jayhawks Hold Slim 1-Game Lead in Big XII

The fans at Allen Fieldhouse will see the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Kansas Jayhawks on Monday night in a key late-season Big XII matchup. The game will be televised by ESPN and it will tip-off a few minutes after 9 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Jayhawks as -2.5-point favorites versus the Mountaineers, while the game's total opened at 158.5.

Kansas won its last outing, a 80-79 result against the Texas Tech Red Raiders on February 11. They failed to cover in that game as a -4.5-point favorite. With Jayhaw star Frank Mason battling illness, freshman guard Josh Jackson took over for the Jayhawks. He become the go-to man with Mason first struggling and then sidelined. Jackson scored a career-best 31 points at Texas Tech. He also added 11 rebounds for his fourth double-double in five games.

In their last action, West Virginia was a 85-66 winner at home against the Kansas State Wildcats. They covered the -7.5-point spread as favorites. For the season, the Mountaineers' scorers are well-balanced. Junior guard Jevon Carter paces West Virginia with an 11.8 average. Four other players average at least 9.5 points. West Virginia trails first-place Kansas by two games. So a sweep of the season series looks almost necessary to have any regular season title hopes the Mountaineers.
