Jayhawks on a slide

After some nice wins early in the year, Kansas has found itself on a three-game losing streak following a 45-20 loss at home to Oklahoma two weeks ago. The Jayhawks are now 2-4 on the season, 0-3 in the Big 12, 2-4 against the spread and 3-3 with the over/under total.

Kansas hasn’t been able to find its stride on offense or defense under new coach Les Miles. The offense is averaging just 22.8 points and 354.5 yards per game. Defensively, Kansas is giving up 29.7 points and 444.5 yards per contest. Carter Stanley is leading the offense with 1,175 yards and 12 touchdowns passing, while Pooka Williams Jr. has rushed for 445 yards and a score. Andrew Parchment is the team’s leading receiver with 32 catches for 422 yards and four touchdowns.

Texas falls to Oklahoma

Texas is coming off its second loss of the season last week in the Red River Showdown against Oklahoma. The Longhorns suffered a 34-27 loss and both losses they have are to top 5 teams. Texas is 4-2 on the year, 2-1 in the Big 12, 4-2 against the spread and 4-2 with the over.

The Longhorns have been able to move the ball well this year, but are struggling to make stops on defense. Texas is giving up 27.8 points and 453.3 yards per game defensively, while the offense is putting up 39.3 points and 456 yards per game. Sam Ehlinger is leading the offense with 1,658 passing yards and 17 touchdowns while rushing for 227 yards and five touchdowns. Devin Duvernay is Texas’ leading receiver with 53 catches for 517 yards and four touchdowns while Roschon Johnson has 363 rushing yards.

College Football Betting Trends

Kansas

The Jayhawks are 5-2 with the under in their last seven games in October and 8-2 with the under in their last 10 games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game.

Texas

Texas is 15-7 with the under in their last 22 home games and 13-6 with the under in their last 19 games in October.

Prediction:

These two have hit the under in five of their last seven meetings overall, but have hit the over in their last two encounters at Texas. Texas can score and the Longhorns should be ready to make a statement following the loss to Oklahoma. Kansas doesn’t have a defense to fear, so I see Texas putting up around 45 points. Kansas has been able to find a way to around 20 points in most games, including against Oklahoma. I think the Jayhawks can get a few big plays against a bad Texas defense and help hit the over.

College Football Week 8 Prediction: Kansas/Texas Over 62.5
