Rivalry Week Begins as Kansas vs Kansas State Offers Thrills

Jayhawks shooting for a win over bitter rivals

Kansas has been getting superior play from two talented first-year players in Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid. The duo combined for 30 points on Saturday in a defeat of West Virginia. The freshmen will be tested before the game even begins on Monday night against Kansas State. The crowd will be raucous, especially since Kansas thrashed the Wildcats back on January 11 at the Allen Fieldhouse by a score of 86-80. The Jayhawks will need to grab an early lead if they want to win this game.

Wildcats looking to add quality win to tourney resume

As we inch closer to March, teams across the country are trying to add quality wins to their tourney resumes. Since Kansas State is un-ranked, you can bet that they will be attempting this on Monday night. With Kansas in the house for a rivalry week game, the Wildcats can improve their chances of a tourney bid with a win. A win might even help tourney officials forget their lopsided loss  to the Jayhawks one month ago.

It would be very difficult for us to bet against Kansas in this contest, which is why we like the spread presented at BetOnline.ag for this Big-12 tilt. Despite being the road team, the Jayhawks are 3.5-point favorites. We will lay the line with 10 percent of our bankroll on the Kansas Jayhawks Monday night.
