Kansas Jayhawks Basketball Predictions: Oklahoma State

Our experts tell you what is going to happen in today's game.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Michigan vs Oklahoma State Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas Jayhawks look to maintain their lead in the Big 12 Conference race when they welcome the Oklahoma State Cowboys into Allen Fieldhouse today at 11am. Can KU avoid a letdown and put away an opponent that they are clearly better than, or will the Cowboys score a huge upset on the road?

dnoll5: I have watched exactly zero seconds of any Oklahoma State basketball game this season. Is it finally safe to say that they don’t have Phil Forte anymore? Oh, and didn’t their coach, the one that K-State wanted but didn’t try to get, leave as well? Maybe this will finally be the game that KU blows someone out at Allen Fieldhouse. #analysis Kansas 88, OSU 68.

Mike.Plank: I’m in the same boat as dnoll. I think OSU beat OU though. And maybe another ranked team in the non-con? I’m sure they’ve also lost to some bad teams. I have no idea where they are in the Big 12 standings, and I don’t care enough to look it up. I’m guessing they’re near the bottom. Which of course, means that this will be a close game throughout for no other reason than it shouldn’t be very close. Kansas 84, Oklahoma State 80.

Fizzle406: i’m with dnoll and mike. I haven’t even thought about OSU this year. Does this make me a bad choice as an “expert”? Hell no. They are the ones who are wrong. I think the hobbit is gone but as they say, when you get rid of 1 hobbit, there are 50 more hiding in the walls. Still I like how kansas has been playing and I think they win. Kansas 80, OSU 67

Kyle_Davis21: I watched about 10-15 minutes of Oklahoma-Oklahoma State in Stillwater, which should in no way be construed as bragging. Just helping to prove a point. Outside of the FBI investigation, there hasn’t been much of a reason to pay attention to the Cowboys. More telling than those 10 minutes of game action I saw is the fact that OSU has yet to win a conference game on the road. Hard to see that changing in Allen Fieldhouse. I’d like to see a more consistent fire from the Jayhawks at home, and maybe that starts Saturday. Kansas 77, Oklahoma State 69

Andy Mitts: This shouldn't be a close game at all, but we all know about the Jayhawks and their penchant to skate by. Oklahoma State was successful against Oklahoma by limiting everyone except Trae Young, as no other player scored in double figures. But KU has too much talent around their lineup to become that one dimensional. Kansas 87, Oklahoma State 70
