Lon Kruger hasn’t won at his alma mater since his first season with the Oklahoma Sooners, but the chances of that changing tonight are pretty high, as the Kansas State Wildcats are all sorts of awful in 2020-21.

Line: Oklahoma -10 (as of 7 p.m. CT)
The Wildcats (No. 186 nationally in KenPom’s team efficiency ratings) picked up a win against TCU this past weekend and have been competitive against good teams from time to time, but Oklahoma’s experience will carry the day even if the purple-clad (or lavender-clad) team muddies this up enough to make this competitive late.
Oklahoma 75, Kansas State 61
