Kansas Jayhawks Football
With zero wins and nine losses a year ago, there’s nowhere to go but up for Kansas football in 2020 with head coach Lance Leipold now at the helm. Oddsmakers aren't particularly bullish about a zero-to-hero arc, though: Kansas has a season-long win total of just one game at most sportsbooks. Keep reading for all the odds on moneylines, spreads and totals, as well as for prop bets and futures for the upcoming season.
Kansas Jayhawks Point Spreads
One of the most common bets available in college football is the point spread bet, a wager on the margin of victory of the favored team. In these types of bets, the favorite — denoted with a minus sign — has to win the game by a certain number of points, while the underdog — hit with a plus sign — has to either win the game or keep a loss within a certain number.
Let’s use an example to illustrate:
- Kansas State Wildcats (-3.5)
- Kansas Jayhawks (+3.5)
In this case, Kansas is a 3.5-point underdog to Kansas State. For bets on the Jayhawks to cash, they’d need to either win the game outright or lose by three points or fewer to cover the spread. Bets on the opposing Wildcats would win only if K-State won by four points or more, covering the 3.5-point spread.
Kansas Jayhawks Moneylines
You don’t always have to bet on whether a team will cover the number: If you’re more interested in simply picking which team will win, then a moneyline bet is what you’re looking for. Moneylines are straight-up bets on which team will win the game, ignoring the margin of victory. Just like point spread bets, the favored team is given a minus sign (-), while the underdog is given a plus sign (+).
Let’s revisit our earlier example:
- Kansas State Wildcats -170
- Kansas Jayhawks +140
The numbers next to the +/- signs are the odds expressed in American format, which are best understood in factors of $100. To win $100 on the Wildcats as -170 favorites, a bettor would need to risk $170. On the flip side, a bet of $100 on the Jayhawks as +140 underdogs would return $140 if Kansas pulled off the upset.
Kansas Jayhawks Over/Unders
Not all bets are on which team will win: Totals, also called over/unders, are wagers on the number of points the two teams will combine to score.
If we were to take our previous example and assign it the number 52, that would be the “total” for the game, and bettors could wager on whether the number of points summed by the two teams would be over or under that number. Over bettors would need 53 points or more to be scored, while under bettors would be looking for 51 points or fewer. If the score landed exactly on 52, the bet would push, and all wagers would be refunded.
Kansas Jayhawks Props
Not every bet on the Kansas Jayhawks fits neatly into the categories of point spreads, moneylines and over/unders. Prop bets cover all types of markets of bets that aren’t necessarily tied to one or both teams' performances.
Many prop bets are player props, a bet on an individual’s final statistical output. A Jayhawks fan bullish on the rushing attack in a given game might bet on RB Velton Gardner to go over a certain number of rushing yards, or to score the first touchdown of the game.
Props on the course of the game exist as well, most often as discrete questions that bettors must answer, such as which team will win the third quarter or which team will kick-off to start the game. Different books offer different props, so make sure to read our sportsbook reviews to find that shop that has the bets you want to make.
Kansas Jayhawks Futures
Bettors dream of hitting bets with long odds, and there will be few teams in a major conference with longer odds to win their conference than the Kansas Jayhawks in 2021.
Betting on Kansas to win the Big 12 would be one example of a future bet, a wager in which the outcome isn’t tied to simply the result of the next game. Many futures are offered preseason before any games are played, like team win totals or season-long player props, but more popular markets will have odds offered throughout the season, such as Heisman Trophy or national championship odds. Futures odds can vary from book to book, so always shop for the best line with the Action Network app.
