Kansas has really played most teams fairly closely other than the 2 Big 12 powerhouses, OU and KState- teams that both can stop the run when required.  Against the most similar offense, OSU, they only lost by a TD.  This was after getting blown out by KState, so a nice rebound.  We have the same thing lining up at home for the Jayhawks against TX.

TX still can't stop the run to save their lives---Baylor's RB had over 200+ on Saturday.  This will be Gray's first road game as a featured back on the other side...could be a fumble or two that swing momentum.

All I've been reading is "thank god KU is next", but Weiss is no dummy and without a defense, anyone can run score on the Horns.  The team after 4 hard fought games/offenses may not put in the prep this weekend...and big game @ Tech the weekend after.  

Think KU +21.5 is a good play in an early kick in cold weather.  The high is only going to be 50 in Lawrence on Saturday and that isn't good for a young TX football team either.

Locked in KU +21..missed the 1/2, but really don't think its necessary.

Also will be on:

TTech + ?

Georgia +7 and ML.  Richt always pulls one out of his hat when no one guesses it, and this will be it this year

ND/OU under 48 - like this much better than either side

NFL-

POY on Philly- just trying to get best line.  ATL is the most overrated team in the NFL and Andy Reid post-bye is

I can't stand KU but I definately feel that you are right on about KU covering this spread. 

Good Luck

Giving that hook on that third TD would make me nervous. Gl though.

Kansas "might" be the right side. Might. But why would you risk your hard earned cash on an atrocious team who may get BLOWN up by Texas...? When there are so many other BETTER plays on the board.

If this is your best play for Saturday then you may have a problem ever finding a profit betting on sports imo.

Disregard the Oklahoma State game.  Complete fluke. 

And TCU fumbled away three or four TDs.  If anything, Kansas is overrated because of these two misleading results that make them look much more competitive than they are. 

The play in this game is the OVER.

Until Texas proves they can cover the spread on any team, they are worth fading

but the over looks good.  Texas should be able to score in bunches and they cant stop anyone...

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying KU is the wrong side.  I just don't see enough to bet it myself, but you may be right, and I hope you win it.  I don't want any part of Texas in this one.

It really is tough to take a team that is very very bad like Kansas.  However, I really don't think Texas is all that good themselves.  They are always overrated.  KU has put in a new QB that has kept them competitive anyway.  Further, that is a lot of points to be giving at home.  I am taking the three td home dog here.

Easiest money of the morning.  Horns may actually lose this one as I predicted.  

Added Zona +5.5.  Trojans always have difficulty there and with Oregon on deck, decent spot to fade them.

Got TTech +7.5, so paid to wait

4-1 day.  I'll take it.    

Always a plus seeing the Sooners get outcoached again.  Figured the forum was wrong on OU-10, but at least my under covered (barely).  

Philly is all you need to play today to keep it going.
