Betting on the Kansas Jayhawks (24-3 Overall / 13-1 Conference)

The Jayhawks didn’t really need a moral-boosting win heading into the last weekend, but they went out and got themselves one anyway, as they defeated the No. 1 Baylor Bears in Waco last Saturday, 64-61, to extend their win streak to 12 games. The win also solidified their chances to get a No. 1 seed in March Madness. Boasting arguably the best inside-outside combo in college basketball today, the Jayhawks leaned on the pair of Udoka Azubuike and Devon Dotson to melt Baylor on both ends of the floor. Azubuike was particularly destructive, scoring 23 points and grabbing 19 rebounds in 36 minutes, while Dotson had 13 points. Dotson led Kansas to an 81-60 win in Lawrence over Kansas State back in January by coming up with 18 points, while Azubuike had 10. Kansas State’s going nowhere. The Jayhawks only need to avoid being too overconfident in their chances to beat the Wildcats.

The Jayhawks have made it a habit to beat Kansas State in Manhattan, as they are 9-1 straight-up (SU) and 6-3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 road games against the Wildcats.

Betting on the Kansas State Wildcats (9-18 Overall / 2-12 Conference)

The misery is seemingly never-ending for the Wildcats, who suffered yet another loss last Saturday, falling prey to the Texas Longhorns at home, 70-59. The Wildcats, who will also have to deal with the Bears this Tuesday, are suffering from a bad offense, They have not scored more than 60 points in four of their last seven games and not more than 67 in any of those contests. Injuries to key players have severely slowed down Kansas State. Against Texas, they didn’t have guard Montavious Murphy due to a knee injury, pushing the total number of games missed by key Wildcats contributors to 50. Playing at home against a rival should spark a better fight in Kansas State, which will rely on the likes of Xavier Sneed Makol Mawien, and David Sloan in the rematch against the Jayhawks.

The Wildcats, who are averaging 64.3 points per game and allows just 64.9, are 3-2 ATS in their last five at home.

Writer’s Prediction

Kansas wins, 70-60.
