West Virginia is under is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 8-1 in their last 9 games in November. Kansas is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 home games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 home games.
The Jayhawks have been better lately in terms of covering the number but the reality is that they were getting a ton of points in those games. The last three games that the Jayhawks were getting points in the teens, they’ve lost those games by an average of almost 25 PPG. West Virginia isn’t a dominant offense by any means, but the Mountaineers have been good at beating the teams they should be on their schedule so I’ll lay the points with WVU here.
