College Basketball Betting Trends

Kansas State

The Wildcats are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games. Kansas State is 27-11 ATS in its last 38 games overall.

Kansas

The Jayhawks are 1-4 ATS in their last five Monday games. The favorite is 18-6-2 ATS in the last 26 meetings.

Prediction:

At this point of the season, I'm a lot more ready to throw money on Kansas State as an underdog rather than an unpredictable Kansas team as a favorite. The Wildcats might occasionally struggle on the offensive end, but the defense keeps them in almost all games. I'd have to imagine the Jayhawks are still reeling from their blowout loss over the weekend and I think KSU can take advantage.
