This Saturday’s Title game could be one for the record books. After two grueling regular season contests Kansas and Kansas State will meet again. The number one seeded Jayhawks are looking for their sixth consecutive win over the second-seeded and ninth-ranked Wildcats. Historically, Kansas (31-2) has dominated the head to head series but both meetings this year were a challenge. Although the Jayhawks came out on top, it was not easy. The Wildcat’s just recently set a school record for wins in a season and will have a shot at an upset. Kansas has six Big 12 tournament titles (a league record) and Kansas State is making its first trip to the finals. This is also the first time that the two schools will faceoff for a league tournament title since meeting in the 1981 Big Eight final in which the Jayhawks won easily 80-68. This contest will be played in nearby Kansas City, Mo and should be a crazy environment, if not the best in the country. Kansas State’s last victory in the series came at home on Jan. 30, 2008. Listed below are your betting lines, trends and predictions for this Kansas vs Kansas State game.

Kansas vs Kansas State Betting Predictions:
Spread Prediction – The Wildcats were lucky to beat Baylor last week in the semi-final. They shot 54% from the field but were helped by the 18 turnovers Baylor committed. The Wildcats will need stellar play from their backcourt to even have a chance in this one and I don’t see it happening this time around. Sorry, no upset here, but expect a close game. Take the Wildcats to beat the 6 point spread but expect a Jayhawk win.
Over/Under – The Wildcat backcourt, Pullen and Clemente are averaging 21.3 and 20.0 points in the last three games against Kansas. Last week the Jayhawks had a 21-2 second half run against Texas A&M. The morale of the story is that both teams can score at will. Lay it down on the over 146.5 points in this Kansas/Kansas State game.
