Kansas has been a powerhouse in men’s basketball for decades. They’ve only missed the NCAA Tournament twice since 1983 and won three national titles over that span, including last season. The same cannot be said of their in-state rival, Kansas State. The Wildcats haven’t made a tournament since 2019 and have been knocked out in the first round only once since 2014. It’s been a story of two different teams in the Sunflower State.
Unsurprisingly, the direct results were also one-sided. Since 1984, Kansas is 85-12 outright against Kansas State. The Jayhawks have not lost against the Wildcats since 2019 and have only one loss since 2015. However, under first year head coach Jerome Tang, there is hope for Kansas State.
Kansas State was a 15-2 start to the season, including a 4-1 record in Big 12 play. They already have road wins at Texas and Baylor. They’ve already surpassed last season’s win total of 14. The Wildcats are currently ranked No. 11 in the country. This sets up the most anticipated Sunflower showdown in years.
Currently at BetMGM, No. 2 Kansas is a 2.5-point road favorite against Kansas State. However, as we all know, winning on the road in college basketball is tough. It will be a noisy environment inside Bramlaj. Kansas State has played the “little brother” role of this rivalry for decades. Is this the year they face Big Brother?

After a packed holiday slate on Monday, the NBA has a lighter schedule on deck for Tuesday. There are only four matches scheduled.
the Brooklyn Networks 0-2 since their loss Kevin Durant injury, but they’re favorites by 5.5 points on the road against bad San Antonio on Tuesday. Brooklyn needs to tread water and survive until Durant’s return, and a win on Tuesday looks like a good opportunity to do just that.
My Tuesday night TNT game looks pretty good on paper. the Milwaukee Bucks Home favorites are 4.5 points on Toronto Raptors. Giannis Antikonmo He missed three consecutive games.

The Cowboys were favored by 2.5 points on the road. The match ended with 45 points, that is, less than 45.5 wins. under the bookies I got some help From four missed points by Cowboys kicker Brett Maher as well as two turnovers in the red zone Tom Brady. This was the first game in this qualifier to fall short of the total.
