In this article, we examine the stats and trends to determine if betting on the Kansas Jayhawks to score over 84.5 points against the Howard Bison is a smart play. With their explosive offense and Howard’s defensive inefficiencies, the Jayhawks could score big in this March Madness matchup. Read on to learn more about why Kansas is a solid bet to cover their Team Total.

Kansas’ Offensive Firepower

The Kansas Jayhawks have a potent offense, averaging 76.1 points per game this season. However, they have been even more impressive against teams ranked 213th or worse, averaging 86 points per game. Howard falls into this category, ranked 216th in Defense Efficiency. This suggests that the Jayhawks should have no trouble scoring against the Bison.

Howard’s Defensive Inefficiency

Howard’s Defense Efficiency ranks 213th in the nation, indicating they have struggled to keep opponents from scoring. Against teams ranked in the top 125 or better, Howard is allowing an average of 88 points per game. The Bison’s most challenging opponent this season was Kentucky, where they allowed 95 points. This bodes well for the Jayhawks’ Team Total, as they are undoubtedly a more potent offensive team than Kentucky.

Game Pace

Both teams prefer a fast-paced game, with Howard ranking 98th and Kansas ranking 78th in tempo. This should result in plenty of possessions for both teams and could lead to a high-scoring game.

Shooting Efficiency

Howard’s defense has been weak against the three-pointer, ranking 148th in the nation. This is good news for the Jayhawks, who shoot 34.5% from beyond the arc. Additionally, Howard ranks 210th in two-point shooting percentage, and Kansas has been efficient inside the arc, shooting 51.4%.


Based on the stats and trends, betting on the Kansas Jayhawks to score over 84.5 points in their March Madness game against Howard seems like a smart play. The Jayhawks have an explosive offense that has been even more effective against weaker opponents. Howard’s Defense Efficiency and points allowed against top 125 or better teams suggest that the Jayhawks should have no trouble scoring. The game’s tempo and Howard’s defensive weaknesses against both two and three-point shooting should also work in Kansas’ favor. With an O/U of 145.5, this game could very well be a high-scoring affair, making betting on the Jayhawks’ Team Total an enticing option.
