BYU Cougars vs. Kansas Jayhawks Betting Pick and Preview

The college basketball season is loaded with some big games on Tuesday night, including a massive matchup in the Big 12 Conference. It will be the BYU Cougars visiting the Kansas Jayhawks, and these are two teams that will be playing in March. 

BYU has spent some time in the Top 25 so far this season, but they have lost two of their last three games ahead of this game. The Cougars are still sitting at 19-8 on the year, and they have performed well in the Big 12 Conference. 

Kansas is coming into this game with a record of 21-6, and they have won three of their last four games. The Jayhawks might not have enough to win the conference this season, but they are still a top-10 team.

Kansas is coming into this game as a 6.5-point betting favorite, and the over/under line is set at 153.5 total points. 

Cougars Can Really Shoot

The BYU Cougars are scoring over 82 points per game this season, and they have a roster that is capable of making shots. BYU loves to push the ball in translation, and they won’t be afraid to take some early shots in this game. 

Guard Jaxson Robinson is leading the way with 13.9 points per game this season, but there are other scoring threats on this team as well. BYU does need to slow down the tempo at times in this game, and they need to find some easy buckets. 

Getting stops has been a major issue for the Cougars in Big 12 action, despite allowing less than 70 points per game overall. 

Kansas Will Be Physical

The Kansas Jayhawks have a massive size advantage in this game, and they will be looking to take control in the paint. Kansas is scoring 77 points per game this season, while also allowing just 67.6 points on the other end of the floor. 

This team has started to figure some things out of late, and they are going to be using their physicality to set the tone in this game. Hunter Dickinson is a double-double machine in the paint, and he should have a big game in this one. 

Guard Kevin McCullar Jr. is one of the most underrated players in the country, and he is scoring 19 points per game to set the tone of Kansas. 

Kansas Cruises to Big Win

The Kansas Jayhawks have really struggled on the road this season, but they continue to be nearly impossible to beat at home. Kansas is going to enjoy a massive home crowd in this game, and they are also facing a team that isn’t great on defense. 

BYU has proven that they have the offense that is needed to win a game like this, but at some point they have to get some stops. The Cougars just won’t be able to lock in when they need to, and this game will get away from them. 

Betting on Kansas at -6.5 to win and cover the spread is one bet to make, and it’s also a good idea to take the over 153.5 total points.
