Kansas vs. Stanford Pick

Kansas vs. Stanford College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread

Will No. 14 Kansas find itself playing down to its competition when it hits the road to face Stanford tonight at 11PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kansas is heavily favored on the road, as the Jayhawks are getting odds of -16 points against Stanford. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 150.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California and will air live on ESPN2.

After suffering back-to-back losses to Washington and Arizona State, Kansas has since won to straight games to get to 9-2 on the season. The Jayhawks are still just 1-3 against the spread in their last four games and 6-4 ATS on the season. Kansas is scoring 88.6 points per game on offense while allowing 66.7 per game on defense. Kansas has five players averaging double figures in scoring. Lagerald Vick is leading the way with 17.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game while Devonte’ Graham is averaging 17 points and 7.7 assists per contest.

Stanford is coming off two straight wins entering tonight’s contest to get to 6-6 on the season. The Cardinal are only 4-8 against the spread this year, but have covered in three of their last four games. Stanford is averaging 74.4 points per game on offense this season while allowing 74.1 on defense. Reid Travis is the clear leader of Stanford with 22.2 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Michael Humphrey is adding 10.9 points and 8.7 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Kansas vs. Stanford

These two have split their last four meetings with each other, but Stanford has covered in three straight in this series. Stanford has a great player in Travis, but Kansas has the ability to limit what he can do. The Cardinal don’t have any other reliable scoring options that can help them keep pace with the Jayhawks. While Kansas has played down to its competition in recent games, Stanford has struggled against good teams like Florida and North Carolina. Expect the struggles to continue tonight as well. The public betting is siding with Stanford, but I think Kansas rolls.
