Texas vs. Kansas odds: Jayhawks are a 19-point underdog to Longhorns

Kansas is a huge underdog as they host No. 23-ranked Texas.

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas Jayhawks are still looking for their first win against an FBS opponent this year, but in Saturday's matchup against the No. 23-ranked Texas Longhorns, the odds do not look good for Kansas getting that win. The line on this game has the Jayhawks as a 19-point home underdog. That is an improvement, as the opening line on the game was 23 points, so there are some people who feel that Kansas can at least stay within three touchdowns of the Longhorns.

Kansas has a chance to beat the line on this game mainly due to Texas' defense which is giving up a lot of points. The Longhorns are 105th in the nation in points allowed, and that equates to 35 points per game. However, the Kansas offense is one of the worst in the nation, and is only scoring 17 points per game. This could be a game where the Jayhawks could possibly break out of that scoring slump.

The over/under on this game is set at 60 points, and seems about right since Texas averages 44 points per game. Compared to last year's game, that 60-point total may not be reached, as Texas won 43-0.
