Kansas Has Dominated In-State Rivalry

The Kansas Jayhawks have been inconsistent this season and their past five games is a microcosm of this, as they have alternated wins and losses with their offense streaky at best. Kansas will look to collect their first back-to-back wins in three weeks when they take on the Kansas State Wildcats on Wednesday. The in-state rivalry has been pretty one-sided as Kansas is 25-5 SU in the last 30 against Kansas State and 12-5 ATS in the past 17.

  • Kansas State is 1-13 SU in their past 14 games on the road.
  • Perry Ellis averaged 20 points and 10.5 rebounds against Kansas State last season.

Offense has been hard to project for Kansas lately as they have averaged 67.3 points in their past three losses and 78.7 in their past three wins.
