Prediction

Kansas comes into this game as the 4th ranked team in my computer power rankings. West Virginia comes in a little lower as the 42nd ranked team. Kansas has been playing very well on the road covering in 75.0% of there games. West Virginia has struggled at home, only covering in 66.7% of there games. When these teams played at Allen Fieldhouse to kick-off conference play, West Virginia was able to keep it close. However, since then West Virginia has struggled against good teams. Ever since the brawl against Kansas State, Kansas has looked like one of the best teams in the country. I am taking the Kansas PK in this one.

Best Bet: Kansas -1
