Kansas vs. Kansas State Odds

Kansas vs. Kansas State Picks

Kansas vs. Kansas State ATS Pick

Kansas State -11.5 (-110) ★★★★

It’s been a tale of two seasons for the Jayhawks. They started the year 5-0, then had to play without starting quarterback Jalon Daniels for over one month. Daniels returned last week, but he did not look like the same quarterback from earlier this season.

The Wildcats have dominated in their last three victories, winning by an average of 31 points per game. Their offense has been outstanding with Will Howard under center. In four games, he has 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions.

However, the main reason the Wildcats will cover this spread is the Jayhawks’ defense is porous and the Wildcats’ isn’t.

Kansas vs. Kansas State O/U Pick

Under 62.5 (-105) ★★★

Speaking of Kansas State's strong defense, the Wildcats are allowing just 18.7 points per game.

Kansas hasn't faced many good defenses this season, which is a big reason why it's averaging 34.8 points per game. The Jayhawks have cleared that average only once in their last four games.

Daniels could have a big bounce-back game to help push this one Over, but this is too many points, even if he plays like he was shortly before his injury.

Kansas vs. Kansas State Prop Pick

Kansas Under 25.5 (-120) ★★★

Though the Wildcats have allowed more than 30 points in three of their last five games, two of those outcomes came against the red-hot Texas Longhorns and the TCU Horned Frogs. This is a defense allowing just 18.7 points per game, and it's given up three or fewer in two of its last four games.

If the Jayhawks pull off the upset, they will have to do so with their defense, as Daniels and the offense just don’t seem to be in sync right now.
