No. 10 Kentucky Vs No. 6 Kansas College Football Betting Analysis

Kansas Scoring Points

Bill Self has enjoyed the Jayhawks offense to this point in the season. Kansas is getting up and down the court, and making shots. The Jayhawks are 11th in the country with 92 points per game. They are making 8.5 three point shots per game, as well. Marcus Garrett has been the man with the ball most often for Kansas. He leads the team with 33 minutes per game, and is scoring just over 13 per game.

Kansas saw a huge game from Christian Braun in the win over St. Joseph. The 6’6 guard from Burlington Kansas scored 30 points, and ripping down 9 rebounds. The Jayhawks trailed in the game, but stormed back scoring 50 points in the second half.

In the season opener, Kansas scored 90 points, but got beat by the #1 team in the nation, Gonzaga. The Jayhawks see the schedule soften following this game, with a series of five home games until they go on the road December 17th at Texas Tech.

Wildcats Look to Get Back on Track

Following the 81-45 win over Morehead State to start the season, the Wildcats lost at home to Richmond. The Wildcats led by 4 at halftime, but were outscored 48-32 in the second half. Brandon Boston led the way for Kentucky with 20 points and 10 rebounds in the loss.

The Wildcats are excited about the idea of their forward Isaiah Jackson. Jackson had a big game on the glass on Sunday with 14 rebounds. Kentucky did not back down from competition, as they have Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, UCLA and Louisville following this, before starting SEC play.

Long History for Teams

The last time these two teams played in Indianapolis, Kentucky won the game by 32 points. That was back in 2014. Since then, Kansas and Kentucky have played 4 times, and the Jayhawks have won three of those. The overall series between these two teams sees Kentucky with 23 wins, and the Jayhawks with 9.

Look for a great game, but the Jayhawks have a little more experience, and too much offense for Kentucky. Betting the Jayhawks is the right move.
