Kansas State vs. Kansas,

Score: 54 - 70
Point Spread: -4½/-106 Kansas
Today's winner is Kansas over Kansas State. This is my BIG 12 Game of the Year.
Kansas will get their 9th BIG 12 Tourney Title. The Jayhawks are 8-1 in Championship games and a win here for sure earns them a top-four seed. With yesterdays 88-75 victory over Iowa State, Kansas is now 5-0 at the Sprint center. Offensively, UK is shooting lights out, putting up 179 points on just short of 60% shooting here. The team is 9-1 both SU and ATS their L10. They have faced, won, and covered both meetings over Kansas State this season. The squad ranks well in every offensive category and has the #1 team in the nation on defense, allowing a mere 36%. K State is a good team but seems to lose to teams that they are supposed to lose to. They lost 6 games this season SU. The entire season they were 'dogs eight times and lost six of those contests, only covering one of those games. Center, Jordan Henriquez is slated to play but suffers from serious back problems. Kansas will exploit this. The Favorite is 24-7 ATS the L31 meetings in the series. The Wildcats are 7-24 ATS their L31 games played vs. the Jayhawks while the Jayhawks are 9-1 ATS their L10 games played against the Big 12. Take Kansas. Thank you.
