The KSU vs. Kansas state rivalry features a line of Jayhawks +9.5 after opening at +7.5.


BetUS host Gary Segars, and expert handicappers Kyle Hunter and Parker Fleming preview the College Football Week 12 game between Kansas State and Kansas.  It is the second oldest in-state rivalry in the nation.

KSU has won every game in the series over the last ten even when the Jayhawks were favored from 2016 to 2018.  Kansas has been blown out of the water over the last four meetings.

Purdue @ Northwestern

This one comes in at Purdue -3 after opening at -1.  Our number is 1.97 Northwestern.  This indicates to us there is as much as a 5 point overlay, not to mention we believe the wrong team is favored.

75% of the overlays and wrong teams favored in this line range of 3/2.5 without going over the 3 do go towards the underdog, in this case the Wildcats.

Northwestern did just beat Wisconsin and are one game away from bowl eligibility.

Jed Wilkinson of said of Purdue: "The issue is that Purdue hasn’t shown an ability yet to have consistency from one week to the next and they really haven’t played well on the road."

Marshall @ South Alabama

Marshall looked good last week in their game against Georgia Southern.  They won that game 38-33.  There's not a whole lot of trust in this Thundering Herd squad.  Still, it's hard to take South Alabama at -10.5.

We get a number of South Alabama 6.98.  There looks to be an overlay here of 3 or greater.  Overlays in this range just above the 10 have done quite well for the dog (in this case Marshall) as per our model.  

Florida @ Mizzou

This one also comes in just above the 10.  The number range doesn't quite meet our model criteria for games above the 10 that must also hit the 10.5.  Instead, this one is ranging from 11 to 12 favoring Missouri.

The Tigers have played well where as Florida comes into this one losers in their last three.  Missouri is also 8-2 Straight Up and 7-3 Against The Spread.

Illinois @ Iowa

We have the number coming in at -3 to -3.5 Hawkeyes.  Our number is 11.66, suggesting an underlay for Iowa of as much as 8 points.

Star cornerback and punt returner for the Hawkeyes, Cooper DeJean, suffered a lower leg injury and will miss the remainder of this season.

Avoid this game like the plague.

Texas @ Iowa State
