Kansas Jayhawks Extremely Profitable for Sports Bettors

The Kansas Jayhawks have been extremely profitable this year and they hope to continue that trend Monday night at the Oklahoma Sooners.

Kansas is an incredible 14-5-1 ATS overall heading into weekend play, which was the 4th most profitable record out of the 259 teams listed.

The Jayhawks record also includes a 6-2 ATS mark on the road and a perfect 6-0 ATS on the road in the Big 12 conference.

The road is where they find themselves on Monday night as they take on the highly ranked Sooners. Tip-off for this ESPN ‘Big Monday' game is 9 pm ET as it comes right after a Big East encounter between Louisville and Georgetown.

The Jayhawks are the defending national champs, but they lost all five of their starters and weren't considered an elite team heading into the season. That's despite bringing back guard Sherron Collins and center Cole Aldrich, two players who were ready to explode this year with more playing time.

Four non-conference losses dampened the start of the season, but Kansas has jelled lately and has KO'd the point spreads in the process. Kansas began the Big 12 season at 10-1 straight-up and the only loss was 62-60 at Missouri in a game they let slip away in the second half.

More importantly for bettors, the Jayhawks are 9-1-1 ATS in the Big 12 heading into their toughest test to date on Monday night.

Tough is the word that describes Oklahoma as they have the best player in college basketball, Blake Griffin, surrounded by an underrated group of supporting players. Griffin is a man among boys down low as his 22.8 point and 14.2 rebound averages have proven. 

However, Aldrich has a big size advantage over Griffin at almost seven-feet tall and 250 pounds. If Aldrich can stay out of foul trouble, then he may be able to limit Griffin some offensively and keep Kansas in the game on the road.

The Sooners still have other weapons like Blake's brother Taylor as well as guards Tony Crocker and Willie Warren. Oklahoma is only 5-5 ATS at home this season but they do get up for the big games like Texas earlier in the season, a convincing 78-63 victory as 5-4 ½-point chalk.

Kansas must withstand the initial blow and energy from the home crowd and if they can, they do have enough solid players to stay in the game and be dangerous as a live road dog.

Can the Jayhawks continue their winning ATS ways in Norman?
