Against The Spread Pick
Kansas and Kansas State part-two will take to the floor at Fred Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, as the #1-ranked Jayhawks make the visit. The last time we saw these teams meet, it ended in an unforgettable brawl, that led to the suspension of Silvio De Sousa. The Wildcats have had a season to forget with only nine total wins. They will be looking to pull the ultimate upset, against their rival who has beaten them 10 out of the last 11 times. The Jayhawks are 6-0 ATS in their last six games, while the Wildcats have only covered the spread once in their last six games. Eight-straight losses will likely be extended to nine, and with that in mind taking Kansas to cover 11.5 points is the right call.
Over Under Pick
Kansas State finds itself currently 325th in the country in scoring average. Meanwhile, Kansas is one of the better offensive teams with an average of 75 points per game. The Jayhawks have scored over 80 points in three of their last four games. Kansas earned an 80-61 victory in their first meeting this season. They combined for a 141-point total that night. Therefore taking an over 131-point total is a good move.
