Kansas stops the bleeding
Kansas put an end to a four-game losing streak last weekend with a 37-34 win at home over Texas Tech. The Jayhawks are now 3-5 on the season, 1-4 in the Big 12, 4-4 against the spread and 5-3 with the over.
The Jayhawks have really been struggling on defense this year, allowing 32.8 points and 473.5 yards per game. Offensively, Kansas has managed to average 27.8 points and 402.9 yards per game. Carter Stanley has played well at QB, throwing for 1,900 yards with 19 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Pooka Williams Jr. has also been strong on the ground, rushing for 704 yards and three touchdowns this year. Andrew Parchment has caught 42 passes for 614 yards and six scores to lead the receivers.
Kansas State stuns Oklahoma
Kansas State had perhaps the biggest upset win of the season this season last weekend when they defeated unbeaten Oklahoma 48-41 at home in a game they controlled most of the way. The Wildcats are now 5-2 on the season, 2-2 in the Big 12, 5-2 against the spread and 4-3 with the under.
The Wildcats haven’t been known for offense this year, as they are averaging just 32.7 points and 379.7 yards per game, which isn’t eye-popping on the national scale. Defensively, K-State is allowing 21.9 points and 369 yards per contest. Skylar Thompson is leading the offense with 1,207 passing yards and seven touchdowns while also rushing for 204 yards and seven scores. James Gilbert is the leading rusher with 558 yards and five touchdowns while Dalton Schoen is the leading receiver with 23 catches for 322 yards and three scores.
College Football Betting Trends
The Jayhawks are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight conference games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games in November.
The Wildcats are 5-1 against the spread in their last six following a win and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games.
Kansas State has won 10 straight in this series, but the Jayhawks have covered the spread in the last three meetings. I do expect a letdown for Kansas State today, but more on defense to allow Kansas to hang around with a high total. K-State will score and should score frequently against this bad defense. However, the Jayhawks are likely to find some explosive plays at home to make this interesting. If the spread was pushing double digits, I would go with Kansas, but K-State is still the better team here and has dominated Kansas for the most part in this series. I think the Wildcats will still win by a touchdown.
