Oklahoma has struggled since its dazzling start, with a 4-3 record in Big 12 play and consecutive losses to Kansas State and Oklahoma State. The Sooners saw their massive comeback effort come up short Saturday in an overtime loss to the Cowboys. Kansas has won five straight since its home loss to Texas Tech, but remains overvalued in the betting market. The Jayhawks struggled to get by a marginal Baylor team int heir last game. Look for Trae Young and the Sooners' edge in firepower to be the difference Tuesday.

TCU appeared headed toward a breakout season, but its trajectory hit a snag in conference play. The Horned Frogs have five Big 12 losses by 16 combined points, including two in overtime and Saturday's defeat to Kansas State. They need some wins, and quality ones, fast in order to boost their postseason resume. TCU has historically played West Virginia well in Fort Worth, but fell by one point last season. The Mountaineers are coming off a blowout of Texas, and this could be a look-ahead spot in advance of their Saturday showdown with Kentucky. Look for the Frogs to give an inspired performance Monday.

Minnesota nearly let a dominance performance slip away Monday against Penn State, but the Gophers still managed an overtime win. In doing so, they finally resembled the team that won 24 games last season and appeared on the upswing. Inconsistent Maryland has just one won against the RPI top 100. The Terrapins have covered some numbers against lower-tier Big 10 teams, but the Gophers should be poised to present another competitive game Thursday.

The Nuggets have won three straight in this series, including a blowout at Los Angeles last January. The Clippers will be hard-pressed to earn their sixth straight win with a thin roster against one of the deeper teams in the league. Los Angeles expended a lot of energy in its comeback win over Houston and former teammate Chris Paul in its last outing. Look for Denver to have the situational advantage Wednesday in a battle of teams vying for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Wed 1/17

This is the ultimate squeeze spot for Boise State against Utah State on Wednesday. The Broncos are coming off a hard-fought win against an ultra-resilient San Diego State club and, on Saturday, they face Nevada in a game that will weight heavily on the Mountain West title race. Utah State should be desperate for a respectable showing after losing by double figures at home to rival Colorado State and getting thumped 83-57 by Nevada in likely its worst outing of the season.
