Over on the Kansas side, they enter this one at 14-3 so far. The Jayhawks are 5-1 in their last six games, falling to Baylor while otherwise beating Stanford, West Virginia, Iowa State, Oklahoma and Texas. 

In the win over the Longhorns, Kansas’ Devon Dotson led the team on 21 points with three assists and six rebounds. Udoka Azubuike added 17 points with nine rebounds there, and Marcus Garrett had 13 points with seven rebounds and seven assists. 

The Jayhawks are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 overall The under is 7-0 in Kansas’ last seven overall and 4-0 in the last four after an ATS win. 

Meanwhile, Kansas State is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win. The Wildcats are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 overall and the over is 10-3 in their last 13 overall. 

The Jayhawks have had a couple of dicey games over their last six—and the 12-point loss to Baylor—but on the whole they’ve played pretty well despite posting less than 67 points in four of those half-dozen games. 

As for Kansas State, they played just about to perfection their last time out, but I don’t think lighting is going to strike twice here; the Jayhawks are simply a better team despite the lackluster finishes lately. I’m going Kansas on the cover.
