Matchup Stats | ATS Insider Preview

This should be different this time around as Kansas State has won 12 in a row on their home court, and are now 29-2 at home under second-year head coach Bruce Weber.. They’ll have a tough time keeping that going on this night though as Kansas brings with them star freshmen Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid.

Embiid’s numbers have taken a hit of late as he’s dealt with foul trouble, though he has played well when on the court. Wiggins is pacing the Jayhawks with 16.0 points per game, and has shown an increased desire to get to the rim which has upped his production. He’s averaging 19.2 points per game over his last five.

Those two freshmen could be in for a bit of trouble in a hostile environment in Manhattan.

The Wildcats will look to their own standout freshman, Marcus Foster, to try to cut into some of that production. Foster scored a career-high 34 points in Saturday’s win over Texas, making him just the third Wildcats to eclipse 30 points in a game, collecting his third 20-plus point effort in the team’s last four games.

Foster hit on five of eight attempts from beyond the arc and finished 13 of 16 from the field He’ll need to step up his play after being held to just seven points in the first meeting between these teams this season, hitting on just three of 12 shots.

Wiggins scored 22 in that contest, while Embiid added 11 points and nine rebounds. Kansas shot 56.1 percent from the field in that contest, including 65.0 percent from the field in the first half en route to a 17-point lead at the break.

The Wildcats have won 12 in row in their own building, including all three versus ranked Big 12 opponents this season, but the Jayhawks just have too much talent for Kansas State’s defense to match up with. Kansas has won six consecutive meetings between these teams, and 48 of the last 51 meetings overall.

Even with that said, the under may be worth a look as the under is 14-2 in the Wildcats’ last 16 home games. Kansas State has held 12 of its opponents below the 60-point mark on the season.

Kansas is 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 games versus Big 12 opponents, and 26-8 ATS in the last 34 meetings between these teams.

The Jayhawks are also 11-3 in their last 14 trips to Manhattan, and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games overall.

The play: Kansas -3.5
