The Kansas Jayhawks have split their last 4 road games. Jalon Daniels is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 1,072 yards, 11 touchdowns and 1 interception. Lawrence Arnold and Luke Grimm have combined for 784 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Quentin Skinner has 18 receptions.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders have won 4 of their last 5 home games. Donovan Smith is completing 66.5 percent of his passes for 1,505 yards, 12 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Xavier White and Jerand Bradley have combined for 918 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Myles Price has 34 receptions.

The Jayhawks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Red Raiders are 2-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss. The over is 21-10-1 in Jayhawks last 32 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Red Raiders last 5 home games. The Jayhawks are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 meetings. The favorite is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders play their best ball at home, but I’m not sure if that’s good enough for me to lay chalk in this spot. Texas Tech has had issues finishing games all year, and that defense leaves a lot to be desired. People keep waiting for the Kansas Jayhawks to come back to reality, but their offense is solid with a top-25 rushing attack and their scoring offense is 15th in the country. After waxing Oklahoma State, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if Kansas wins this game outright. Give me the points.
