College Basketball Betting OddsThe Kansas State Wildcats may not have a chance at catching the top seeds in the Big 12, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t going to have a huge role in determining which sports betting option comes out on top. After knocking off the No. 14 Baylor Bears and No. 3 Missouri Tigers in back-to-back games, the Wildcats have established themselves as a legitimate force in the Big 12, and set the stage for a showdown at the top this weekend when Missouri visits the No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks with just one-half game between them.

Saturday, 1:30 PM ET

Rodney McGruder dropped another 24 points to his season total, Thomas Gibson added 13 off the bench, and the Mizzou Arena was silenced on Tuesday as the Wildcats pulled off another huge upset in the Big 12.

Kansas State was being talked about as a bubble team for the national title tournament up until this past week, but consecutive wins over top-25 teams from the Big 12 has surely changed the perception around the Wildcats, and a strong finish could have them being talked about as a legitimate threat. While Iowa State lost both of its games to Baylor and Missouri they still did take down Kansas at home, but the Cyclones have struggled on the road and won’t be able to overcome a confident Wildcats’ team that appears to be heating up at the right time as Betonline favorites.

Oklahoma Sooners @ (14) Baylor Bears
Saturday, 1:45 PM ET

The opposite can be said for a Baylor team that appears to be unraveling right when it matters the most. The Bears opened their season with 17 straight wins to establish themselves as legitimate Big 12 contenders, only to struggle to a .500 record over their following 10 games, losing all four games against Missouri and Kansas. Baylor still has time to bounce back to a certain degree with its next two games against the bottom-two teams in the Big 12 standings, beginning against a Sooners’ squad at risk of dropping their seventh-straight ahead of Monday’s NHL trade deadline day.

(3) Missouri Tigers @ (5) Kansas Jayhawks
Saturday, 4:00 PM ET

Seemingly in control of their own Big 12 destiny, the Tigers had to have been caught looking ahead to this game against the Jayhawks when they were caught unprepared for Kansas State, a tough loss that could come back to haunt them. Missouri had handled the Big 12 with ease up until that point, including a win at home over Kansas, but now they have to head to the Phog Allen Fieldhouse desperate for a win, one-half game back of the Jayhawks in the standings. With the March Madness betting tournament right around the corner all eyes will be on this matchup of the top two seeds in the Big 12, and with the Tigers reeling following that loss to Kansas State, they appear more than vulnerable as they make their way to Kansas.
