The West Virginia Mountaineers and Kansas State Wildcats face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown in the Big 12 tournament at the Sprint Center. When these two teams faced off on February 14th it was Kansas State that won 78-73. 

Markquis Nowell was the top player for Kansas State scoring 21 points. Taz Sherman was the top player for West Virginia scoring 23 points and three rebounds. 

West Virginia comes into this game with a 15-16 record and he has gone 13-18 against the spread. Even though they have had a down season, they are coming off a big win in their last game against TCU. The defense did find success giving up only 64 points and that led to the six point victory. West Virginia is averaging 77.3 points while their defense is giving up 72 points per game. Taz Sherman has been the top player for West Virginia averaging 18.3 points while shooting 42.2 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from behind the three point line.

On the other side of this matchup is the Kansas State Wildcats who sit with a 14-16 record overall and they have gone 15-13-2 against the spread. Kansas State has lost five games in a row, and in the last game against Oklahoma they lost 78-71. Nijel Pack has been the top player for Kansas State averaging 17.4 points while shooting 45.7 percent from the field and 43.6 percent from behind the three point line. Kansas State is averaging 61.8 points while their defense is giving up 70.2 points per game.

Kansas State is 0-3-1 against the spread in their last four games played on Wednesday. The over is 7-0 in Kansas State’s last seven games overall. 

For some reason Vegas still seems to disrespect the offense of the WIldcats this season and that has led to the over being a strong play. I don’t see a whole lot of defense being played by either team and this game is going to go over the total. This is one of the top plays on the board.
