Kansas vs Kansas State Betting Prediction

The Wildcats' situation will not improve as they must play Texas Tech, Iowa State, Florida, and Texas twice against the Jayhawks in the upcoming two weeks. Even though the Wildcats are a tough squad, they lack the Jayhawks' level of depth.

As we saw Saturday at home against Iowa State, the Jayhawks have demonstrated their ability to win close games. The Jayhawks should perform just enough to leave Manhattan with a victory, extending their winning streak to 11 games, despite this being a close game throughout.

Pick: Kansas Jayhawks (-130)
