Doc’s Sports was right on the money with their bowl picks on the game between Kansas and Minnesota. Not only did they beat the bowl game odds on the side, but they also nailed the total. Take a look at the reasons they had for both plays below:
3 Unit Play. #14 Take Kansas Jawhawks over Minnesota Golden Gophers – The Jawhawks have had over a month to prepare and figure out an offensive plan of attack against a weak Gopher defense. Minnesota has lost four straight game with all of them coming against mediocre teams (Michigan, Northwestern, Iowa, Wisconsin).
4 Unit Play. #14 Take Over in Kansas Jawhawks vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers – The Jawhawks still have one of the best quarterbacks in the country and have scored points all season long in a conference that is loaded with talent. This fits a perfect mold for the over since the Gophers have very little pass defense. True, they did start the season 7-1 but totally dismantled in the last four games. Most of those victories came against weak competition and the Hawks will put up another good showing in a bowl game. Minnesota lost their last regular season game 55-0 at the Dome against Iowa, a team that does not really light it up. The Insight Bowl did not want Minnesota and they will not bring down that many fans compared to Kansas. The Big XII is a much better conference and that will show up throughout the bowl season and it is worth laying the wood in this contest. Kansas 49, Minnesota 27.
