West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia may not be a ranked team, but they have had quite the year so far. If they keep up their strong play, I would definitely expect to see them get in the top 25.
The Mountaineers beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Tuesday by a score of 70-60. It was a nice win for them, but now their main focus is on trying to stop this powerful Kansas program.
When you look at their schedule, they have played some tough teams, but they have also taken care of plenty of weaker ones. There is a good chance that this game on Saturday will be their toughest test of the year, besides when they square off with Baylor.
A lot of different people stepped up for them on the offensive side in their last game. The leading scorer was Jalen Bridges, who had 22 points and 5 rebounds, while Taz Sherman chipped in 13 points and 5 assists.
Kansas has played quite well this year and they are ranked as the number 6 team in the country. I do not think they are some pretender, either, as I feel they could compete with the best of the best across the college hoops landscape.
The Jayhawks come into this ball game with a record of 13-2. The only loss on their schedule that really puzzles me is the one to Dayton, but they have not let that one game impact the way they have played after it.
This club picked up an impressive win over the Iowa State Cyclones on Tuesday by a score of 62-61. After trailing by a few points at the half, they came back in the second and won a back-and-forth affair, which is always a good sign for a program.
Offensively, this crew could have certainly played better in their last game, but the defense was impressive. They will look for that to be the case once again when they face off with a good scoring team in the Mountaineers.

Free West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Kansas Jayhawks NCAAB Summary:
West Virginia could make a statement by going into Allen Fieldhouse and getting a win. They are going to have to play their A game to do so, however, as beating the Jayhawks on the road is never an easy feat.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: West Virginia ATS
After knocking off a tough Iowa State team at home, Kansas will once again be challenged when they host this Mountaineers squad. The Jayhawks really should be able to win this ball game, but their opponent will present them with a lot of issues, so they cannot lack focus on either side of the ball.
Right now, West Virginia is a confident group and I do not think they fear anyone. They may not win this game, but I feel they have the players to keep it within this number. Also, I do not feel the Jayhawks are so dominant to the point where this an auto-cover for them.
For me, the 11.5 points are too high to lay with Kansas. I would say they take care of business, but the offense for the Mountaineers makes it interesting.
Give me WVU getting the points at Kansas.
