Opening as just a 1.5-point favorite, No. 6 Kansas has had no problem attracting bets against an unranked Oklahoma State team this evening. As of writing, 75% of bets on this spread have landed on the Jayhawks, and sportsbooks have taken notice.

In fact, Kansas has made it all the way to -4 at some books behind its heavy backing. But according to our PRO Report, that new listing has caught the attention of sharp bettors.

College Basketball Sharp Betting Pick: Kansas vs. Oklahoma State

Sharps and big bettors — who are probably one and the same in this case — have finally seen enough, and are ready to buy back this number.

Sharp Action

A four-point spread was the stopping point for this line thanks to sharp bettors.

A Bet Signal from Action Labs — an indicator of market movement caused specifically by sharp action — was triggered on Oklahoma State at +4. That’s been the only such signal to hit this spread as of writing.

As a result, oddsmakers have changed course, reverting back to +3.5 despite the heavy majority of bettors taking Kansas.

Sharp Action edge: Oklahoma State

Big Money

Also giving oddsmakers plenty of reason to pause, the 25% backing of the Cowboys is now generating 69% of the actual money hitting this spread.

Of course, that sort of monetary liability is going to catch sportsbooks’ attention, but perhaps more importantly, it reveals Oklahoma State to be attracting the bigger bets — the ones more likely to come from sharps.
