#706 Oklahoma State +6 -110 over Kansas

Quarterfinals of Big 12 Conference Tournament - Sprint Center, Kansas City, Missouri

2:30 PM EST. There is a reason oddsmakers opened this line with #6 Kansas spotting just a basket and that is because the Jayhawks need this Big 12 tournament like they need a hole in their head.  Sure, it's being played in their home state, but with sophomore center Udoka Azubuike already on the sidelines, making it to the Madness unscathed could be their number one priority. The big 7-footer went down with an MCL sprain during a scrimmage on Tuesday and he will not be in the lineup today. A one-and-done scenario is not the worst thing that could happen to the Jayhawks here. It might even be for the best, as the pressure to get Azubuike back into the lineup will only grow as the Big 12 tournament goes on. As a perennial college hoop powerhouse, Kansas' eye is always on a National Championship.

The Cowboys are on a mission. Head coach Mike Boynton did not mince words after his team's 71-60 victory over rival Oklahoma in round one,  "We came here to win the Big 12 Tournament, and we'll worry about whatever is next week when next week comes." Boynton is right to be focused on this conference championship being the Cowboys only ticket to the dance, as ESPN Bracketology expert Joe Lunardi still has the Sooners getting in over OSU despite its two wins over Oklahoma this season. Everything comes down to cash, and the NCAA, ESPN and everyone else have one chance to cash in on freshman sensation Trae Young. Do you think they care about stiffing Okie State in pursuit of the all mighty dollar? Two of the Cowboys best wins this season came over these Jayhawks, and while the cliche says, "it's hard to beat a team three times in a season," that adage just isn't enough to justify this line movement today. The number suggested the Cowboys were a live pooch here but now that it has moved into this range, it prompts us to move in hard.
