Kansas Jayhawks Basketball Predictions: Oklahoma Sooners

The crew gets together to tell you what is going to happen today.

NCAA Basketball: West Virginia at Oklahoma Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas Jayhawks are back in action at home for the first time after being destroyed by the Texas Longhorns, as the Oklahoma Sooners come to town. Even though we definitely AREN’T the jinx, I pulled the crew together to make sure we don’t cause another inexplicable loss. We all let you know what to expect from today’s game.

Kyle_Davis21: I don’t expect Kansas to be as insanely efficient as it was against TCU, but the hope is most of the spacing, passing, and David McCormack production carries over. Oklahoma’s offense is better than TCU’s, but the Sooners are only shooting 33.5% from 3 so far this season. Barring a ridiculous outlier shooting game from deep from OU, I think the Jayhawks bounce back at home. As of Saturday morning, the line is -7, which feels about right. I’ll take KU to barely cover. Kansas 79, Oklahoma 71

Mike.Plank: The Jayhawks are on a roll, and I think they’ll still be motivated to show the Texas game was an aberration. I thought Tuesday's game would end up being rather comfortable, but I was surprised at just how easy it was. I look for KU to make another statement today. Kansas 90, Oklahoma 68.

David: Oklahoma has only one truly good win so far this year, but they’ve been decent nonetheless. With the Jayhawks a bit all over the place lately, I’m not sure exactly what to expect. I don’t expect a blowout, but I do think KU comes away with a win. Kansas 76, Oklahoma 71

dnoll5: I’m taking KU to win even though I had no idea they were playing until I got notified to make a prediction. Definitely had my mind on other things this week. In that regard, perhaps basketball will be a nice palate cleanser, something that will take my mind off all the other things that are happening right now. Kansas 76, Oklahoma 66.

Andy Mitts: There isn’t much to be worried about by this Oklahoma team, except for the fact that some random guy always seems to go off from 3 when these two teams play. I’m not sure who it is, but it will be someone. Kansas should still win this one comfortably unless they go ice cold from beyond the arc like in the Texas game. Kansas 82, Oklahoma 70.
