Kansas Jayhawks vs. Colorado Buffaloes

The Kansas Jayhawks are an 8-point home favorite against the Colorado Buffaloes in Big 12 action.  The over/under total is 150.  The #2 ranked Kansas Jayhawks have a 1-4 spread record in their last five games with the der going 3-2.

Kansas lost their first game of the season on Saturday 74-63 to Texas at home.  Kansas was a 7-point favorite in the game failing to cover as well.  Kansas was held to 35.9 percent shooting from the field and was outrebounded 40-33.  Tyrel Reed led Kansas in scoring with 17 points while hitting five 3-pointers.  The combined score of 137 was below the tal of 144.  Kansas is 4-3 against the spread in its seven games away from home, with the er going 4-3.

Colorado last played Saturday when they lost to the Oklahoma Sooners 67-60 as a 3.5-point home favorite.  Colorado only shot 1-10 from beyond the three-point mark.  Meanwhile they allowed Oklahoma to hit 52.2 percent of their shots from the field.  For Colorado, Alec Burke and Corey Higgins each scored 15 points.  The combined 127-points went well below the tal of 143.  Colorado is 4-1 against the spread in their first five home games, with the er also going 4-1.  Colorado averages 69.6 points per game at home.

Kansas beat Colorado when these two teams last played last February 72-66 in overtime.  Kansas was a 14-point road favorite in the game failing to cover the spread.  In the game, Colorado only shot 37.5 percent from the field and struggled from the foul line as well.

I see this as a very difficult game for Colorado.  Kansas, who is a much better ad bigger team than Colorado will be angry about their defeat to Texas and will look to make a statement.  My confidence level that Kansas covers the 8-points is very high.  Kansas defense will limit Colorado from scoring much at all.  For the fact solely, I am also going to take the der.  The final score should be something like Kansas 76 and Colorado 60.
