Twice this season has Kansas State lost as a favorite; once has it won as an underdog.
Now, it’s only been an underdog three times and the game it won outright, it was only getting a point — that was at Vanderbilt (#92 KenPom).
The two losses as a favorite were at Arizona State (#27) and versus Tulsa (#143) on a neutral court.
That Arizona State game was right before ASU came onto the scene. Tulsa has surprised some in the American Athletic thus far. It’s an intuitive trend, but one nonetheless: K-State has won when it’s supposed to win and lost when it’s supposed to lose.
That trend seems to make more sense with this team because it just wins one way: by scoring. Bruce Weber’s offense will either overwhelm you, or it won’t.
Kansas’ defense isn’t the best in the country but it’s in the top 25 percent and probably the top half of the top 25 percent.
According to the metrics, Kansas’ defense is good, but I’m less convinced with the recent results, which have come in conference play.
The Jayhawks gave up 78 at home to Iowa State this week, 84 at TCU in the game before that, 85 at Texas Tech and 86 at home against Texas.
Those are Kansas’ four Big-12 results. It won three of them, covered two of them, and the total has gone over in all four.
The total for the Texas game was 139; the total in this week’s game against Iowa State was 159.
If the oddsmakers don’t list something in the 160s for this one, we’ll be on the over. If they do, you have to give some thought to Kansas State because it is the sort of team that can go just about anywhere and drop 90, if the temperature is right.
