Tuesday, Jan. 10's NCAA college basketball action features the No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks facing the Oklahoma Sooners in Big 12 action at 9 p.m. ET.

Kansas' winning streak has solidified the Jayhawks as the second-best team in the country, having won their eighth straight game with Saturday's 76-62 effort against West Virginia. Meanwhile, Oklahoma snapped a two-game skid with a 68-63 overtime win over Texas Tech this weekend, highlighted by Jalen Hill and Milos Uzan each scoring 18 points.

Can Kansas extend their winning ways to nine games with a win at Allen Fieldhouse? Or will Oklahoma hand the Jayhawks their first Big 12 loss of the year?

Kansas vs Oklahoma Prediction & Pick

Even though Oklahoma has looked solid at times, Kansas is too strong on both sides of the court to be stopped. On offense, the Jayhawks average 77.7 points (No. 40) on 47.8% shooting (No. 24), also sinking 8.2 threes (T-No. 81) on 38.2% accuracy (No. 22).

As for defense, Kansas holds opponents to 62.8 PPG on 39.8% shooting at Allen Fieldhouse. Considering how Oklahoma is only averaging 68.3 PPG (No. 225) this season, I see the Sooners struggling to keep pace with the Jayhawks, who own a plus-18.8 scoring margin at home.

At the end of the day, Kansas is the clear-cut better team and shouldn't break much of a sweat tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Kansas: 77 | Oklahoma: 65

Kansas vs Oklahoma Best Bet

Kansas has absolutely dominated this Big 12 rivalry over the last few decades, winning 25 of its last 30 matchups against Oklahoma — including each of the last three meetings. The Sooners also haven't won a road game against the Jayhawks since March 10, 2002.

Considering how Kansas has dominated Oklahoma at Allen Fieldhouse and has done a fantastic job at creating separation this season, I fully expect the Jayhawks to cover the 10.5-point spread tonight.

Bet: Kansas -10.5 (-110)
