TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17TH
#703 KANSAS (-13) over Kansas State at 8 PM EST
Checking in on a roll off three straight wins and covers, Kansas will have no trouble extending the margin against this soft Kansas State squad. The Wildcats just covered three straight (0-3 SU) as a double-digit underdog and they’ll finally meet their match in this rivalry game.
History will certainly be helping KU in this matchup. In the last 54 meetings, Rock-Chalk-Jayhawk holds a powerful 48-6 SU and 37-16-1 ATS record including an amazing 25-3 SU and 22-6 ATS if the Purple Cats own a conference won/loss percentage less than .500. Even better, when going into revenge and lined up against a sub .400 opponent, Kansas holds a reliable 22-9-1 ATS mark in its last 32 lined games including a lucrative 14-3 ATS in this setting provided the Jayhawks are not playing at home. Finally, when checking in off two or more pointspread victories, head coach Bill Self and his kids own a money-making 45-11 SU and 34-21 ATS mark including a strong 24-2 SU and 18-8 ATS if they are laying -8.5 or more.
Kudos to KSU for picking up ATS wins in its last three battles. However, backing a Wildcats bunch that is a soft 12-38 SU and 18-29 ATS in their last 50 games isn’t going to happen anytime soon. In this run playing inside Bramlage Coliseum, the Purple Cats slip to a horrible 10-18 SU and 8-17 ATS including a feeble 8-15 SU and 4-16 ATS if their opponent holds a conference won/loss percentage less than .700. Also, since February 9th, 2019, Big 12 home dogs hold a weak 10-32 SU and 16-26 ATS mark provided they are matched up against a conference foe that scoots in with steam off a straight up win.
With a victory tonight, the Jayhawks will grab their 10th league win for the 27th consecutive season. KU’s high octane offense will be too much for KSU to handle in the end. Take Kansas. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
