Following a rare losing season, it stood to figure that coach Bob Huggins and West Virginia would rebound with a vengeance. The Mountaineers have been a profitable CBB Betting play and top Big 12 contender this year. The Stout defense has been the Mountie’s ticket back to getting their March Madness dancing shoes. Counter to that is a Kansas team that is always favored to take the Big 12 title. KU also plays strong defense but has more offense than West Virginia. True, coach Bill Self is on FBI tapes conspiring and has a brawling team. Yet nobody cares!

Kansas is 20-3 straight up, 13-10 against the spread and 7-16 under the total. Overall national rankings have the Jayhawks 87th for scoring offense, but eighth for points allowed.
West Virginia has lost some value after a profitable January. Consider the Mounties have paid in only one of their last four games.
