Kansas vs UNLV Preview & Picks

Kansas are tipped to cover as they win the Guaranteed Rate Bowl.

The Jayhawks were solid against unranked teams during the regular season and covered consistently during the final two months.

  • Kansas are 7-1 against unranked teams
  • Kansas are 5-2-0 ATS in their last 7 games
  • UNLV failed to cover in their last 2 outings
  • The Under has cashed in 3 of Kansas’ last 4 games

Head To Head

  • The all-time series is tied 1-1
  • Kansas won 46-24 when the two teams last met in September 2003

Kansas Form

Kansas finished the regular season with an 8-4 record and did enjoy a notable win along the way.

The Jayhawks opened with four straight wins, but saw their perfect start end with a 40-14 blowout loss at #3 Texas.

A couple of weeks later they suffered a 39-32 defeat at the hands of Oklahoma State, but they rebounded in impressive fashion a week later by knocking off #6 Oklahoma, 38-33.

Kansas backed that up with a 28-21 success at Iowa State, only to lose their next two outings, 16-13 to Texas Tech and 31-27 at #23 Kansas State.

The Jayhawks did avoid a third straight loss though, as they wrapped up the regular season with a 49-16 victory in Cincinnati.

UNLV Form

UNLV go into this Bowl Game looking to bounce back from a conference championship defeat.

The Rebels went 9-3 in the regular season to earn a place in the Mountain West Conference Championship Game.

They rebounded from a 35-7 defeat at #2 Michigan with a run of five consecutive games that saw the offense repeatedly score over 40 points.

UNLV then bounced back from a loss to Fresno State with a three-game win streak, meaning their 37-31 loss to San Jose State did not deny them a place in the conference championship.

The Rebels failed to bounce back from that loss though, as they were beaten 44-20 by Boise State.

Verdict

UNLV enjoyed a great season, but injuries are stacking up and their last two losses were convincing, so we are backing Kansas to sign off with one more win and cover.
