Tony Caliente, Gambling911.com resident bookmaking expert here, with a look at the Kansas vs. Oklahoma State betting line and what that number actually should be.

The line on this game was +3 for Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys claimed an 84-79 victory at Kansas on Feb. 3, one of three defeats in Allen Fieldhouse for the Jayhawks, though they now ride a five-game winning streak.

"Back when (the Big 12 was divided) north-south, you didn't play as many home-and-homes as what you do now," Self said, "but I know it's been like a hundred (actually, 102) series we haven't been swept. Certainly going to Texas Tech and going to Stillwater isn't the remedy you would think to give you the best chance to keep that streak intact, but we've got an opportunity if we play well."

Oklahoma State, likely bound for the NIT, is coming off an 80-71 victory on Tuesday at Iowa State. The Cowboys have not posted back-to-back wins in Big 12 play.

“We need to stick to what we do most and that’s defense and get in transition,” said Oklahoma State forward Cameron McGriff, a sophomore who netted 19 points in the win at Iowa State. “Just staying together, all as one, because the crowd is going to be there and we can definitely use that energy from them, but we’ve got to also find energy ourselves.”

Kansas had won the three previous games in the series, all by more than the current spread.

The College Basketball Betting Power Ratings indicate the Jayhawks should be a -6 favorite. 

On paper at least this looks like a Jayhawks easy cover.
