    That's a lot of points but KU really sucks. I bet we cover this game.

    That’s a bit generous to us, I’d say.

    Quick search showed Texas under Herman has won by more than 29 points 3 times.

    Good luck to whoever takes that bet.

    Horns typically play down to weaker competition..... I suspect KU will play their best game of the year and coming off a bye week Horns struggle to win by 7.

    That is a sucker bet, under Herman, on the road, this sets up for Kansas hanging around way too long and if Texas farts around too much like they almost did in Lawrence two years ago and really almost did again last year at home, it could be a coaching at a power five career ending game for Tommy Terrific.

    There's a better chance of my house being TPd this weekend.

    How long has it been since Texas beat any power five school by 30 ?

    Canzez may be as bad as UTEP. I think we cover, but I take that back if it's cold, wet and windy.

    From what I can tell, 3 years. Beat Baylor 38-7 on October 28, 2017.

    Thread title has an error...line is now -30, with an Over-Under of only 61.

    That 61 is actually an increase from where it opened...

    Call me a cynic, but as impotent as this offense has looked of late, the big spread scares me away as much as the 10+ lines in the NFL have the past few weeks. If I were betting the game, I avoid the spread, bet the money line and probably put some funds on the under.

    There is a 60% chance of rain and, while the weather may have passed by the time of kickoff, that still means a wet field. Temps that day have a low in the 30's and a high that is projected to crack into the mid-60s's. Winds in the mid-teens. I would expect a heavy dose of just pounding the line running the ball...

    I would take Kansas especially if it rains.

    Are you talking ML or are you talking about taking the points? Makes a big difference...

    But our coach said they worked REALLY hard on the passing game during the bye. Don't you have faith that the offense will look better? :clap:

    In a word....no.

    Maybe they should try orange slices...I hear that was a motivational tool.

    On the bright side...if the defense continues to struggle, I hear Coach Boom is available.

    How many games has Herman covered in 3+ years? Not including the three bowl games, I would guess less than 10 total games.

    I think I saw that KU is 124 out 125 on Scorind D and 121 out of 125 on Scoring O. Really bad team. If don't win by 30 then it should be considered a loss...

    Clarify I would take Kansa plus the 29. Kansas ML would be a stretch.

    That's a lot considering we don't usually blow people out. Kansas is bad enough where we still should, but Herman will still take off the gas early. I could see us leading something like 35-7 at halftime but then the final score being 45-17.

    Kansas easily covers.

    Give the points and take Texas. Sometimes a team like Kansas this year is just really, really bad. I don’t think even our child coach can keep Texas from covering.

    The over/under is back to 58 at Circa but still with the 30 point spread. No money line is showing in the app...they are one of the very few games in that category this weekend. All four of the others I saw like that were 30+ point favorites, which tells me that you can probably get -10000 at the window (put up $10K to win $100).

    From a betting standpoint, absolutely nothing about this game would really get me motivated to put any meaningful sums down.
