Each week during the college basketball season, I will offer my picks and predicted final scores for the biggest games on Saturday as well as some mid-major matchups. This way, when the lines are released on Friday evening, you'll have at least one Vegas pro's opinion as to what the final scores might look like.

Here's a look at six key matchups on Saturday, including Oklahoma State-Kansas, Tennessee-Kentucky, Pitt-Syracuse, Michigan-Wisconsin, Alabama-Missouri and UNLV-San Diego State.


Oklahoma State Cowboys at Kansas Jayhawks

When the Jayhawks play a weak defensive team, they have the athletes to do whatever they want on the offensive end of the court. That's how they've hung 80-plus points five times in their past seven games while going 5-2 against the spread in the process.
