College Basketball Betting Trends
The Jayhawks are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games. Kansas is 2-5 ATS in its last seven Monday games.
The Cowboys are 1-5 ATS in their last six Monday games. The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings.
The Jayhawks are short-handed due to suspensions and only played seven players Saturday, which is a bit worrisome especially on a short turnaround with hardly any preparation time. But these are also college athletes who can bounce back pretty quickly and Oklahoma State is in the same boat with the short rest. What it boils down to is that the Cowboys have lost all six of their Big 12 games by at least seven points. Kansas is one of the best teams in the nation and has shown the ability to go on the road and pound an opponent. Go with the visitors tonight.
