Before tuning into the Kansas vs. West Virginia game, you need to see the college basketball picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated an impressive profit of over $2,200 for $100 players on its top-rated college basketball picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen huge returns.
For West Virginia vs. Kansas, the model's strongest pick is to go under 143 points. The season-long numbers for Kansas show the Jayhawks' offensive upside, as they're averaging 81.7 points per game and shooting 50.1 percent from the field.
But those numbers are a bit inflated by early-season blowouts. It's been tougher sledding for the Jayhawks recently on offense, as they are averaging 67.7 points in Big 12 play. Though they won, they're coming off their lowest point total of the year in their 62-61 win over Iowa State earlier this week.
Add in a tough West Virginia defense that gives up just 61.3 points per game and it's easy to see how this game stays under the total. SportsLine's model is projecting that this matchup goes under well over 50 percent of the time, making it a top pick for Kansas vs. West Virginia bets on Saturday.
