Kansas St. vs. Kansas Betting Preview

NCAAF Week 10 Picks – Kansas State Wildcats vs. Kansas Jayhawks

Two teams in the hunt for the Big XII North crown will clash in Lawrence, and BetUS Sportsbook will have all of the action for this sports betting affair when the Kansas State Wildcats (4-4, 3-4 ATS) face off against the Kansas Jayhawks (5-3, 4-3 ATS) in the 106th installment of the “Sunflower Showdown.” Last season, the Jayhawks bested the Wildcats 30-24, picking up an easy ATS victory as 3.5-point road underdogs. Wildcats bettors have had the most to celebrate of late though, going 11-2 ATS in their L/13 battles with their in-state rivals. Things were looking good for Kansas State bettors when they knotted their match-up with Oklahoma at 28-28 with just 8:00 to go in the 2nd quarter. That said; the Sooners rolled off four unanswered touchdowns to close the half and never looked back ultimately closing out the Wildcats 58-35 to sufficiently cover the lofty 18-point spread. QB Josh Freeman had a massive game, throwing for 478 yards and three touchdowns, but did throw three costly interceptions. WRs Ernie Pierce, Brandon Banks, and Deon Murphy combined for 23 catches, 415 yards, and three touchdowns. The game easily eclipsed the ‘total’ of 71, marking the fifth time in the L/6 Kansas State games that has resulted in an ‘over’. In those five ‘overs’, the ‘total’ was passed by an average of 17.6 points per game. The Wildcats struggles are reflected in their defensive statistics. K-State ranks 110th in the nation in yards per game allowed (441.6) and are 101st in points allowed (31.4). Kansas bettors weren’t any happier with Saturday’s proceedings. Much like their in-state rivals, the Jayhawks played their fourth ‘over’ in their L/5 games, but they didn’t contribute too much to the effort. Texas Tech walloped Rock Chalk 63-21, giving no hope to anyone who took the two-points on the closing NCAA football betting line. Red Raiders QB Graham Harrell rolled up 386 yards and five touchdown passes on a hapless Kansas defense that gave up five straight touchdown drives in the first half. QB Todd Reesing only completed 16-of-26 passes for 154 yards, the lowest total he has had all season. For an offense that averages 442.4 yards per game, the fact that they were held to 315 overall yards was alarming. The 42-point margin of defeat was the worst loss since absorbed by the Jayhawks since losing to Texas 66-14 back in 2005. Everyone in the Big XII North has at least two losses in conference, so this game should go a long way in deciding whether either team will be competing against the Big XII South champion next month. Oddsmakers have installed the host Jayhawks as 10.5-point favorites, with a ‘total’ of 74.5. Both teams have NCAAF betting trends that suggest they’ll be victorious this weekend B12 North sports betting battle. KSU is 4-2 ATS in its L/6 Big XII road games, while the Jayhawks counter with a 13-4 ATS mark in their L/17 overall conference games.
