Kansas has had quite the offensive production so far this season, and they are going to have no issue running up the score in this game. I also believe North Texas is going to get a balanced attack from their offense, and this game will be high scoring. Back the over to cash, and it’s going to go well over the total. Kansas is also going to cover the spread.
