Kansas State vs. Kansas Betting Odds and Preview
Sportsbook.com’s Betting Lines: Kansas State Football Live Betting Lines nfl football betting Online Bingo Bicimotos -3, Total: 50
In-state rivals are looking to get back on track following blowout losses as they meet for the 108th time in the Sunflower Showdown. K-State surrendered 451 rushing yards in a 48-13 home loss to Nebraska while Kansas allowed 678 total yards in a 55-7 defeat to Baylor. The Wildcats, who have not played a true road game this season, have lost eight straight road games. After losing three straight meetings to the Jayhawks, KSU won last year 17-10, behind 185 rushing yards and a TD from Daniel Thomas.
Thomas is really the only offensive player getting the job done. His 138 rushing YPG ranks seventh in the nation, but he has not had much room to run in the past two weeks (44 carries, 142 yds, 3.2 YPC). Kansas State is still not comfortable with its quarterback situation, considering the Wildcats have the fourth-worst passing offense among FBS schools (156 pass YPG). Senior Carson Coffman remains the starter despite three straight sub-par performances -- 55% completion rate, 128 passing YPG, 2 TD, 3 INT. Another area where KSU is very weak, is its run defense. KSU now ranks as the fifth-worst such unit in the nation (247 rush YPG) following the Nebraska game.
Kansas has also struggled stopping the run, allowing 188 rushing YPG (95th in nation). And the Jayhawks aren’t much better offensively, ranking 100th in the nation with 19.2 PPG. But KU is much more secure in its QB position with freshman Jordan Webb continuing to improve. Webb has four straight games with a TD pass and has completed more than 60 percent of his attempts this year. Another freshman, James Sims, has done a nice job rushing the football with 410 total yards and three touchdowns in four games.
The favorite in this series is 11-3 SU & ATS since 1996. No wonder 87% of the college football betting population at Sportsbook.com are pounding the KSU point spread (-3).
Here are a few betting trends to consider before making your Kansas State vs. Kansas bets.
Play On - A road team (KANSAS ST) - off a blowout loss by 21 points or more to a conference rival, with a winning record on the season playing a losing team. (27-6 over the last 10 seasons.) (81.8%, +20.4 units. Rating = 3*
KSU head coach Bill Snyder is 10-0 ATS (+10.0 Units) off a blowout loss by 21 points or more to a conference rival in all games he has coached since 1992. The average score was Snyder 31.2, OPPONENT 14.8 - (Rating = 4*).
While the following college football betting trends leans towards the under covering.
Play Under - Any team against the total (KANSAS) - after being beaten by the spread by 42 or more points total in their last five games, in the first half of the season.
(53-16 since 1992.) (76.8%, +35.4 units. Rating = 4*).

CFB: Liberty Bowl -ARKANSAS vs. EAST CAROLINA (5:30 PM ET, ESPN)
On the surface, a SEC vs. Conference USA bowl game matchup would figure to be a mismatch, but East Carolina is C-USA’s best team while Arkansas was a middle of the pack team from the SEC. Still, oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com see enough in the Razorbacks to make them 8-point favorites.
East Carolina captured its second straight Conference USA title by beating Houston in the league championship game. The reward of that accomplishment…a date with a SEC foe in the Liberty Bowl. In last year’s game, East Carolina lost to Kentucky, playing as a three-point favorite. In the 2010 edition, the Pirates are a 7.5-point underdog to Arkansas, which could be big for bettors, as they are 22-10 ATS in the pup role under head coach Skip Holtz. His team comes into the game at 9-4 and played its best ball at the end, going 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in its L7. The Razorbacks also played well down the stretch though, going 4-1 SU and ATS in their final five, while scoring 44.8 points per game. They have won just two of their L9 bowl games though and are 3-6 ATS.
Quarterback Ryan Mallet transferred from Michigan and needless to say, the move was a smashing success. Mallet led the Hogs’ explosive offense to some pretty impressive numbers, 6.8 yards per play and 37 points per game. If it wasn’t for a couple of gut-wrenching three-point road losses to Florida and LSU, Arkansas would have certainly been placed in a high-profile bowl. East Carolina, led by 20th-year senior Patrick Pinkney (just kidding, it only seems that way), won its last six conference games to capture a second consecutive C-USA title. The real question here is whether the Pirates’ average defense (allowing 22 points per game and 386 yards per game) can slow down the explosive Razorback attack. Most likely the answer is no and Arkansas will prevail in a shootout.
Top FoxSheets.com ATS Trend
Skip Holtz is 13-5 ATS (+7.5 Units) versus good offensive teams - averaging >=5.9 yards/play as the coach of E CAROLINA. The average score was E CAROLINA 28.8, OPPONENT 27.4 - (Rating = 1*)
Top FoxSheets.com Total Super Situation
Play Over - All teams where the total is greater than or equal to 63 (ARKANSAS) - in a game involving two average teams (within +/- 50 YPG of their opponents) after 7+ games, in non-conference games. (24-4 over the last 10 seasons.) (85.7%, +19.6 units. Rating = 3*)
LIBERTY BOWL Series Trend: The last three Liberty Bowl games have matched the SEC vs. Conference USA, and not surprisingly, the SEC has swept those contests 3-0 SU & ATS. What is more surprising is that C-USA was the favorite in each of the last two seasons. Overall, underdogs have covered seven of the last 10 installments of this series. The UNDER shares that same mark over the last decade, but has alternated with the OVER in the last six years.
CFB: Champs Sports Bowl - Wisconsin vs. Miami (8:00 PM ET, ESPN)
One of the bowls that was being tagged by experts on ESPN as an intriguing matchup was the Champs Sports Bowl, pitting Wisconsin vs. Miami. That game comes Tuesday night from Orlando. Apparently bettors at Sportsbook.com aren’t seeing the same type of competitive contest, as 75% of them have backed the Hurricanes, moving them from 2-point opening line favorites to now minus 3.5-points.
Wisconsin still has not-so-distant and not-so-pleasant memories of its last trip to the Champs Sports Bowl. That came last December when the Badgers (9-3, 6-6 ATS) were spanked 42-13 by Florida State. For 2009, Miami-Fl. is the opponent, and though head coach Bret Bielema’s team is two games better than it was a year ago, the Hurricanes (9-3, 6-6 ATS) present an imposing challenge. Miami ended up having played one of the country’s tougher schedules featuring eight bowl teams (5-3 SU & ATS). The Badgers were matched against seven postseason participants (4-3, 2-5 ATS) and failed to win or cover versus the last three.
This bowl has had more name changes than the emotions Urban Meyer has gone through in the last week (Tangerine, Blockbuster and Micron PC) and annually has been one of the least competitive bowls, as since 1993 only three games have been decided by a touchdown of less. Maybe a cheap tire company should be the sponsor in the “Blowout Bowl”.
Wisconsin has to have QB Scott Tolzien play well or the Badgers probably can’t win just running with John Clay. They need balance and throwing to talented tight ends and underrated WR Nick Toon, prevents Miami from stuffing the box. Off their demolition of Hawaii (51-10), Wisconsin is 21-6-1 ATS next after conceding 20 or fewer points.
Miami must have quarterback Jacory Harris at the top of his game. The Hurricanes undoubtedly have more offensive weapons, speed and athleticism, however if Harris is under pressure in the pocket, the offense tends not function as proficiently. It would make sense for Miami to play to strengths and come out throwing, testing the Badgers with their speed and determine how they react, which leads to running the ball with Graig Copper and their stable of backs. The Canes have covered five of last seven against teams with winning records.
Miami is a 3.5-point favorite, with total of 58 and despite most recent 7-3 ATS bowl mark, the Hurricanes are 10-24-1 ATS as favorites. The Badgers have covered the number just once in last seven encounters against squads with winning records and are 4-9 ATS as underdogs.
Wisconsin has become a bowl regular and is 9-10 with 9-8 ATS mark. This will be the Badgers sixth straight trip to the Sunshine State for bowl activity and the eighth consecutive time they will be an underdog in the postseason (3-4 SU & 4-3 ATS). Miami is 18-14 as a bowler, with above average 14-10 ATS record. The Hurricanes are 11-9 ATS as faves, but 1-3 ATS the last four times. The ACC team in the Champs Bowl has six-game winning streak with 4-2 ATS record.
