Kansas

The Jayhawks are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The home team is 19-7-2 ATS in the last 28 meetings.

Prediction:

The interesting thing about the Kansas State schedule and record is that all nine of its losses have been to top 100 teams, which shows it has not lost to anyone awful as of yet. The last two defeats have been the worst as they lost by 14 each at Texas and at home versus Texas Tech, but bouncing back versus a very strong West Virginia team shows it has not given up on this season. Rivalry games bring the best out of teams and I'd be surprised if this is not closer than people expect. Going with the dogs tonight.
