Kansas Jayhawks at Kansas State Wildcats
Date/Time: February 10th, 9:00 p.m. EST
The college basketball card on Monday night is one reason that it has been dubbed Big Monday. This Monday when the Kansas Jayhawks play against the Kansas State Wildcats college basketball fans will get everything they love about college hoops in one game. They will get a rivalry game between two top teams in the country on a nationally televised stage.
The Kansas Jayhawks are a favorite to win the college basketball national championship, but the Wildcats should not be ignored. They have 16 wins this season and recently disposed of the top ranked Texas Longhorns on their home floor. That win got the Wildcats right back into the title race. Led by freshman Marcus Foster‘s 34 points, Kansas State dominated the 15th-ranked Longhorns from start to finish. A 12-0 run early in the game turned a previously intriguing game into a rout. Kansas State is a very dangerous team in the Big 12 race going forward. Foster has earned his way into discussions for Big 12 Freshman of the Year with his great season in Manhattan. He will be on display in this game but will go up against the best players in the country which will really test his mettle. A win here would make a huge statement to the NCAA Committee. It would also put the Wildcats in a great spot overall.
The latest college basketball betting trends reveal that both teams have some positive wagering angles heading into this Big 12 big battle between tow behemoths. The Jayhawks are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 5 road games when playing against a team with a winning home record, 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games when playing against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 when playing against an opponent from the Big 12 conference.
The Wildcats are 22-6-1 ATS in their last 29 home games when playing against a team with a winning road record, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 when playing against an opponent from the Big 12 conference. However when it comes to head to head meetings, the Jayhawks have owned the Wildcats.
The Jayhawks are 11-3 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Kansas St, 26-8 ATS in the last 34 meetings overall and the favorite is 26-8 ATS in the last 34 meetings. The Wildcats are very impressive, but will be in over their head when they go up against the Jayhawks.
