We are in full College basketball mode as March Madness is right around the corner. We have a Big 12 match-up tonight between (19-6) Kansas St and (10-15) West Virginia. K-State is sitting atop the Big 12 at 9-3. They are coming off a home loss to Iowa State on Saturday, 64-78. On the other spectrum of the conference standings, Bob Huggins Mountaineers are 2-10 in the Big 12 and loss their 3rd straight on Saturday to Kansas. Both teams met in January where K-State got the dub, 71-69 (nice). WVU had 15 turnovers in that game.
Turnovers have been this Mountaineers MO this year. They currently rank 330th out of 353 teams and turned it over 24 times on Saturday. The team is led by James Bolden and Esa Ahmad. Both players are averaging 12 ppg. As a team they are scoring 71.4 ppg and allowing 75.4. Both towards the bottom of the nation.
K-State is led by Senior Guard, Barry Brown. Brown is averaging 15.7 ppg. The team is averaging 65.8 ppg and allowing 60.2 (4th in the nation).
Even though the loss at home looks bad for K-State, Iowa State was lights out from beyond the arc, 14/24 (58%). The Wildcats should get their 20th win tonight on the road. The question is will they cover 7.5? We like WVU to bounce back from Saturday. If they can control the turnovers, we think they can keep this close at home. Our models have this as KSU -5. Which barely puts this out of a recommended GreenZone play. We would recommend watching the line movement and 100% grabbing WVU +8 if you can get it.
