15* K-State/Kansas ESPN Monday No-Brainer on Kansas -7.5
Kansas State vs. Kansas,
02/11/2013 21:00 EDT,
Score: 62 - 83
Point Spread: -7½/-110 Kansas
You can bet your bottom dollar that the Kansas Jayhawks will be laying it all on the line tonight to get a win over the rival Kansas State Wildcats. I believe that max effort will be more than good enough to cover this generous 8-point spread.
Kansas has lost three straight games coming in for the first time since 2005. The fifth-ranked Jayhawks are looking to prevent the program's first four-game skid since an eight-game slide in 1989, which was also the last time they dropped back-to-back home games. History is certainly on our side tonight folks.
The Jayhawks also trail Kansas State by one game for first place in the Big 12, giving them even more reason to be motivated tonight. They beat the Wildcats 59-55 on the road in their first meeting this season.
Kansas has simply owned Kansas State throughout the years. It is 23-7 ATS in its last 30 meetings with the Wildcats. Recent home meetings have been absolute blowouts as well. Kansas is 6-0 SU & 6-0 ATS in its last six home meetings with Kansas State dating back to 2007, winning all six contests by 14 points or more.
This play falls into a system that is 25-4 (86.2%) ATS since 1997. It tells us to bet against any team (KANSAS ST) - revenging a loss where team scored less than 60 points against opponent off 2 or more consecutive upset losses as a road favorite. Take Kansas Monday.
