Vegas Play of the Day: Kansas at Kansas State

Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point.

Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.

Kansas at Kansas State, Total Over 137 points: $550 to win $500 : Kansas State is just 253rd nationally in scoring at 68.5 points per game, which forced oddsmakers to set the total at 137 points. Kansas State, however, has been much better offensively in its last seven games, scoring more than 70 points five times.

The game is expected to be close, with Kansas a minus-3.5 favorite, meaning Kansas State will have to score with the run-and-gun Jayhawks to win. Kansas has scored more than 80 points in six of its last nine games, and in two of the other three games, it scored 77 and 78 points. Kansas is 29th nationally in scoring at 79.3 points per game.

It’s a rivalry game which should get physical, meaning more fouls and free-throw attempts.

All signs point to the over.

Standings: Bern (8-4, $10,690), Keefer (4-7, $8,517.50), Brewer (3-6-2, $8,320)
