Over/under prop bets for KU's matchup with Kansas State
A Sunflower Showdown worth talking about?
This has been a one-sided rivalry for the last decade on the football field, but that could all change this weekend at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium. For the first time since 2009, KU is less than a 10-point underdog against Kansas State.
The Jayhawks are just a 5.5-point underdog as of Friday afternoon via FanDuel's Sportsbook.
As a result, this week's over/under prop bets are more optimistic than they might have been in previous years. That doesn't necessarily mean KU is going to win this game, but it does make specific matchups more interesting this weekend.
Sports editor Matt Tait still leads this series, but Twitter voters and myself are tied for second after I went 4-1 in last week's prop bets. Here is look at the overall season standings heading into the Sunflower Showdown:
Matt Tait: 22-17-1 (3-2 in Week 9)
Twitter: 20-19-1 (3-2 in Week 9)
Shane Jackson: 20-19-1 (4-1 in Week 9)
