Betting On Kansas Kansas State – Jayhawks Complete Season Sweep Of Wildcats

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 10:25:20 PM

To many online betting players, Kansas may have been a little overrated when it came to national-championship odds, but the Jayhawks have come together much quicker than anyone expected and should be considered the frontrunners in the Big 12. They can sweep their rivals from Kansas State with a win in Manhattan on Monday, and the Wildcats won’t have the offense to keep up with the Jayhawks.

What: NCAA Basketball Betting
When: Monday, February 13th, 9:00 PM ET
Where: Bramlage Coliseum, Manhattan, KS
Pick: Kansas Jayhawks

Why Bet On Kansas Jayhawks (19-5 SU, 9-2 Big 12, 12-10-1 ATS)

The Jayhawks were ranked seventh in the AP poll heading into the weekend’s visit from Oklahoma State, which is the definition of a trap game as Kansas fell by three points at Missouri last weekend, but they recovered for a 68-54 win at Baylor, so it would be easy for them to have a letdown against the Cowboys. Offensively, it was a three-man show as Jeff Withey poured in a game-high 25 points, while Thomas Robinson had 15 points and 11 rebounds and Tyshawn Taylor added 19 points for the Jayhawks, who shot 51.1% from the field and went on a 14-0 run after the break to take over the game. But they also held a talented Baylor team to 37% shooting on their home floor, while the Bears didn’t help by making just 12 of their 21 free-throw attempts. But it wasn’t all positive for the Jayhawks, who had 19 turnovers and the Bears outrebounded them 13-7 on the offensive glass.

NCAA basketball betting players have to give Kansas some serious consideration when it comes to the national title as they’re active on both ends of the floor, however, they have to tighten up on their three-point defense (225th in three-point field-goal defense) and they’re also 159th in turnovers. But the Jayhawks know their roles and they play within themselves, and that can help a team go a long way in the Tournament. If Withey can score more consistently, that could make the Jayhawks lethal.

Why Bet On Kansas State Wildcats (17-6 SU, 6-5 Big 12, 9-10 ATS)

The Wildcats will be aiming to extend a winning streak to three when they head to Texas on Saturday, and prior to that they used a big first-half lead to roll to a 65-46 win at home over Texas Tech as they were up 31-17 at the break. Shane Southwell came off the bench to score 13 points, hitting all six of his free throws, while Will Spradling went 0-of-5 from the field, but a 10-of-10 effort at the foul line gave him 10 points and that is all the Wildcats would need. Kansas State shot just 30% from the field, but they held the Red Raiders to 28.9% and hit 10 more foul shots to cruise to a victory, and the Texas game kicks off a massive stretch of games for the Wildcats, who will be in Austin, then they host Kansas before heading out to Baylor and Missouri. A win in one of those games may go a long way in the eyes of the NCAA selection committee, and a sweep of the Tigers (who they beat by 16 points at home in January) would definitely counter their sweep at the hands of a bad Oklahoma team.

If Kansas State is going to pull off a huge college basketball betting upset, they need to avoid being down by 15 points at halftime, which is what happened in a 67-49 loss in Lawrence on January 4th. The Wildcats don’t shoot many three-pointers (227th in three-pointers per game), and they don’t make a high percentage of them (208th in three-point percentage), so if they get down early, it’s tough for them to catch up. However, the most surprising factor of that game was that Kansas State was outrebounded 48-24; the Wildcats are 19th in the nation in rebound margin and they lead the Big 12 in boards per game, and they’ll need to play like it on Monday night.

How It Will Play Out

Kansas State should be a slight NCAA basketball betting favorite in this contest, even though they’re 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five overall meetings with the Jayhawks, who are also 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS in their last five trips to Manhattan with the last four going over the posted total.

The Jayhawks need to hit the boards as hard as they did in the first meeting in Lawrence, because they can run away with this game. The Wildcats have a young backcourt that can be forced into mistakes, and they have the edge inside with Robinson and Withey, who needs to remain aggressive on the offensive end. Take Kansas to cover the spread in Monday’s sports betting picks.
