Despite dropping four of their last six games, the Jayhawks continue to hold on to the 14th ranked spot in the nation. On the other hand, a loss to the Kansas State Wildcats in their last outing costs them 4th place within the Big 12 conference, which is currently occupied by the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys continues to struggle on both ends of the floor. However, they will not want to be relegated to the cellar of the Big 12 with yet another loss. However, last-place may be a possibility if their offense is not able to gain more consistency.
After a slow start versus TCU, the Cowboys were not able to complete a second half rally en route to their second straight loss (5th in 6 games).
It has been rough for the Jayhawks recently as offense has been hard to come by. To make matter worse, Lagerald Vick has left the team due to personal reasons, thus taking away 14 points per game. However, Dedric Lawson (19 ppg, 10 rebs) continues to be the leader on the offensive end as he has posted double-doubles in four of the last six games for Kansas.
Fortunately for Kansas, they will be playing three of their next five games at home. Aside from going undefeated in their last four at Allen Fieldhouse, the Jayhawks have posted an average of 80 points during these outings.
Finally, Lawson has been virtually unstoppable at home for Kansas as he is averaging 26 points per game in their last four home contests. On the other hand, he has recorded three double-doubles during this time.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
The Oklahoma State Cowboys are no threat of making any noise within the conference this season. They have dropped seven of their last ten contests as their offense continues to labor in posting an average of 65 points during their last six games.
Their most relied upon players in Cameron McGriff (12 ppg) along with Lindy Waters III (12 ppg) struggled in their last outing in going a combined 5-15 from the floor in ending with 8 and 7 points. Also, while McGriff shoots a tad under 40% from the floor, Waters III has been on fire from three-point range in connecting on 43% per outing.
In all, the Cowboys have become accustomed to close games recently as seven of their last ten contests were decided by single digits. Nonetheless, the Cowboys are losers of three of their last four outings away from home as their average loss was by eight points.

Free Oklahoma State Cowboys vs Kansas Jayhawks NCAAB Prediction:
While the Jayhawks have had it rough lately, look for them to squeak out a victory on Saturday versus the Oklahoma State Cowboys as Lawson will continue to dominate.
On the other hand, the Kansas’ defense will also step up a bit more as they will face an inconsistent scoring team in the Cowboys. In all, Kansas will pull away at some point during this contest while finally picking up a much-needed victory by an 85-71 score.
4* Free NCAAB Betting Pick: Kansas Jayhawks +3
I will back Kansas and the points in this contest as the Cowboys have not only been horrible on the road, but, their offense has become so unreliable that I would not feel safe, at all, in backing them in any circumstance.
It is for this reason that I happen to think that the home team will pull things together and right their ship with a convincing conference win on Saturday.
