College Basketball Betting Free Play: Kansas Jayhawks at Kansas State Wildcats

Kansas at Kansas State +2 O/U 147
Recommendation: Kansas State

Heated in-state rivalry figures to be as intense as ever after 73-72 KU victory just 16 days ago. Plenty of fuel added to the Kansas State fire tonight after what they perceived to be preferential officiating given to the Jayhawks in that contest. That sentiment came on the heels of last season’s 90-88 Kansas win in which then junior Svi Mykhailiuk clearly traveled on the game winning basket. In his press conference after this season’s loss. Bruce Weber said “I’m really disappointed in some of the calls. But we were all here last year, and same thing.” The Wildcats figure to have extra motivation and look to benefit from what will be a very raucous home crowd. Kansas is oblivious to fierce road environments and rallied back in the second half to win at Morgantown a few games ago but their poise will again be tested tonight.

One difference tonight from the first meeting is Kansas State’s starting sophomore PG Carter Diarra who took over the role six ago after junior Kamau Stokes broke his foot during the Texas Tech games. In his Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Tech Red Raiders at Kansas Jayhawks

Texas Tech at Kansas
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener: Texas Tech -17 O/U 77
CRIS Current: Texas Tech -16 O/U 79
Recommendation: Kansas

Two weeks ago, Kansas played arguably its best game of the season. Trailing early to West Virginia, the Jayhawks battled back and were within one score midway through the fourth quarter before two turnovers let to two Mountaineer scores and a somewhat deceiving 56-34 final. Kansas still covered the number (+23.5) giving them five straight Big XII pointspread wins dating back to last season but I'm far more interested in what they were able to do on the ground. There was a lot of preseason talk about Kansas going to more of an "Air Raid" style offense but they simply don't have to personnel, particularly at the quarterback position, to chuck the ball around 50 times a game and have success. Against WVU, Kansas ran the ball 50 times and finished with 367 yards on 7.3 ypc. This against a team that coming in was allowing 4.4 ypc. Don't expect that type of success on a weekly basis but keeping the ball on the ground, especially in Read more

College Football Gambling: Kansas already rethinking pass-happy, up-tempo offense

09.12.2017     08:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
During the offseason, Kansas head coach David Beaty brought in former TCU offensive coordinator and "friend" Doug Meacham to take the Jayhawks' offense to the next level. Meacham's offenses at TCU where nothing short of prolific thanks to top-tier talent including quarterback Trevone Boykin. He doesn't have those types of weapons in Lawrence but that didn't stop KU from chucking it up 62 times in last week's 45-27 home loss to Central Michigan. Quarterback Peyton Bender looks the part and has a big arm but also appears incapable of completing more than 55% of his passes against decent competition. In the end, Beaty basically called out Meacham and said to cool it with the past-heavy crap. Beaty has a point but he had to have known what he was getting into when he hired an "Air Raid" guy. 

 

“We don’t want to throw the ball that much over running it,” Beaty said after praising CMU for its 35-carry, 37-pass balance, bolstered by Shane Morris’ 467-yard, five-TD passing

College Football Betting News: Kansas hopes new OC will spark improvement

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Recruiting at Kansas isn't easy but the Jayhawks this offseason marked perhaps the biggest score since head coach David Beaty took over with the "recruitment" of former TCU offensive coordinator Doug Meacham. Meacham has a big hand in the Horned Frogs' offense going from pedestrian to prolific. The tricky thing for Meacham will be doing it with far less talent. Kansas was one of 12 teams nationally that failed to average over 5 yards per play last season.


“I called him 10 times and offered him so much, I told him ‘look, you can have all the money, I’ll hire everyone else for a dollar,’” Beaty said on Monday, the first of two Big 12 Football Media Days in Frisco, Texas. “’You can have it all, what’s it going to take to get you here?’ Cause I just think that much of him.”

“He’s one of the best offensive minds in college football,” Beaty said. “Bringing him to Lawrence was an incredible

College Basketball Gambling: Who Has What It Takes to Win the Big Dance Part I

History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion.  I write this article every year, and in every year except for two, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA National Champion among my elite level teams. Both exceptions were the same team – UConn – making miracle runs to win the title as prohibitive longshots.

Three years ago, Kevin Ollie’s Huskies were on the ropes in their tourney opener against St Joe’s, needing a late rally just to send the game to overtime.  Three weeks later, they cut down the nets as national champs at Jerry’s World in Arlington.  I didn’t see it coming.  Neither did the betting markets, with UConn priced in the 100:1 longshot range prior to the tournament.  And if a longshot like that wins every coinflip game in the tourney this year, I’m not likely to get it right either.

Here is a list of the last 19 NCAA champions and the teams they beat in the title game: Kentucky over Utah in ’98, UConn over Duke in ’99, Michigan St over Florida in 2000, Duke over Arizona in ’01, Maryland over Indiana in ’02, Syracuse over Kansas in Read more

College Football Handicapping: Nowhere to go but up for Wake Forest offense

08.03.2016     08:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of our favorite things to blog about during the summer is bad college football offenses. Yesterday, we discussed the Kansas Jayhawks who remain married to the "air raid" offense despite not having nearly enough talent to pull it off. Wake Forest is projected to be far more vanilla in its approach after averaging less than 300 ypg of total offense against the ACC. Despite winning only three games, there were plenty of examples that Wake could be competitive. In four games against Indiana, Florida State, Louisville, and Duke, the Demon Deacons lost each by one score and were outgained by a combined 57 yards. Most of that however had to do with Wake's defense. Take away games against high-powered North Carolina and Clemson and Wake's seasonal defensive numbers (5.16 ypp allowed) were solid. But the Read more

College Football Handicapping: Kansas could be a great over bet this season

08.02.2016     11:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
By default, Kansas is probably going to be better than last year. It may not result in more wins or even pointspread covers, but being outgained by 2.26 yards per play is hard to duplicate. The Jayhawks were equally awful in 2014 and were outgained by "only" 1.67 ypp. It's clear that head coach David Beaty's "air raid" offense isn't the right fit for winning games or even being competitive considering the roster's current lack of talent but any increase in offensive productivity and the right opponent (and number) and perhaps there will be some value on playing this squad over the total. Kansas finished 6-6 O/U last season but three of the team's six unders were with totals of 71, 74, and 76 high numbers even for a competent offense. When priced with totals below 60, KU went 5-2 O/U. And in those seven games, Kansas topped two touchdowns only twice. Keep an eye out for situations where the Jayhawks face more moderate offenses (and thus moderate totals Read more

College Football Gambling: Kansas expectations once again ultra-low

07.21.2016     08:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For the second straight year, the Kansas Jayhawks are lined at 1.5 season over/under wins. Last season was a total disaster as KU failed to win a game while covering only three of 12. We'll go ahead and give the Jayhawks a Week 1 win over FCS Rhode Island who last season went 1-10 and finished 224th in Sagarin's Power Ratings. Beyond that, KU's best shot at another victory looks to be home tilts against Ohio and Iowa State. Below are the records since 2009 of teams off a winless season. In each instance, they won at least one game but no more than two the following year.

2009
Eastern Michigan (0-12)
2010's Record: 2-10

Western Kentucky (0-12)
2010's Record: 2-10

2012
Southern Miss (0-12)
2013's Record: 1-11

2013
Miami (OH) (0-12)
2014's Record: 2-10

Georgia State (0-12)
2014's Record: 1-11
