Kansas CBB Odds 2022-23

Posted: Sep 25, 2022Last updated: Sep 26, 2022

It’s been 70 years since the University of Kansas men’s basketball program has reached consecutive national-championship games. But on the heels of the Jayhawks’ dominant season, which culminated in their fourth national championship this past April, they will seek to become the first school to go back-to-back since the University of Florida in 2006-07.

Gone to the NBA are star guards Christian Braun and Ochai Agbaji, as well as standout point guard Remy Martin, from the team that went 34-6 and shared the Big 12 regular-season championship before claiming both the conference tournament and national championship.

But Kansas, coached by Hall of Famer Bill Self, is expected to reload and should be near the top of the national rankings and Big 12 standings throughout the season. The Jayhawks also should be among the favorites to cut down the nets after the 2023 Final Four in Houston.

Kansas National Championship Odds

Kansas to Win NCAA National Championship (+2000)

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Jayhawks are on the short list of favorites, as they are most years. Kansas did lose four of its top-five leading scorers from 2021-22 but will return leading rebounder and third-leading scorer Jalen Wilson, while also bringing in sharp-shooting transfer Kevin McCullar from Texas Tech.

The Jayhawks will enter the season tied for ninth with the shortest odds, along with Arizona, to win the national championship for Self’s 20th season as Kansas coach. Given the fact he’s already won a pair of national titles and had the top-ranked team when the 2020 season ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a bet on Kansas is always solid - especially given the odds.

A +2000 wager will fetch $2,000 in profit on a $100 wager, or $20 for every single dollar bet.

Kansas Big 12 Odds

Kansas to Win Big 12 (+240) 

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Jayhawks have won their conference’s regular season crown in 16 of Self’s 19 seasons, including a share of the crown in 2022. Kansas has the second-shortest odds behind only Baylor (+220) to claim the conference regular season crown. This is a wager well worth mashing, even in spite of Kansas’ potential rebuild season.

A +240 bet will pay out $240 in profit on a $100 wager, or $2.40 per dollar bet.


How to Bet Kansas Moneylines

Betting on KU moneylines in-season is simple, especially if you are in Kansas where the practice of online sports betting is now legal. Simply click on the NCAA basketball tab on your preferred sportsbook app or website, find the University of Kansas basketball game — or search for it if you are using a sportsbook that enables searching — and wager on KU moneyline by tapping the odds.

If Kansas is playing at Allen Fieldhouse against a mid-major opponent, the moneyline odds may not be available, and if they are, the Jayhawks might be something like a -1000 favorite, meaning $0.01 profit for every dollar bet.

However, if Kansas is an underdog, like in a road matchup at Baylor or for its neutral-site matchup against Duke, it will have a plus-number in its moneyline column. Plus-money wagers produce the amount of profit in a $100 wager, which means a +150 wager would produce $1.50 profit for every dollar bet.

  • 2021-22 Kansas Moneyline Record: 34-6

How to Bet KU Spreads

Betting the Jayhawks to cover the spread is a riskier way to wager, especially in those early-season nonconference games against mid-majors. Kansas was just 6-7 ATS in 2021-22 regular-season nonconference games, according to TeamRankings.com, despite going 11-2 straight up in those games.

The Jayhawks also were 3-3 against the spread in NCAA Tournament, including the national championship game where they missed covering by a single point against North Carolina.

Spread odds are almost universally -110, a coin flip in the world of online sportsbooks, which means you as a bettor would win $0.91 profit for every $1 bet. That means there is greater payout potential than wagering on Kansas to simply win, especially in the nonconference slate, but the risk is also greater since the Jayhawks might be anywhere from a 17- to 30-point favorite.

  • 2021-22 Kansas Against the Spread Record: 20-20

How to Bet Kansas Over/Unders

Over/Unders, also known as totals betting, can be a fun way to wager on the number of points in a game. But it can be a crapshoot, especially in basketball, where an off-shooting night can do you in.

Kansas finished 25th in the nation in scoring average, putting up about 78 points per game. But because the Jayhawks only surrendered about 67 PPG, the Over was successful in just 20 of their regular-season games, including just eight of their final 21 games.

Like spreads, Over/Under odds are almost always -110 for basketball, meaning a $0.91 profit per dollar bet. But because basketball totals are high, and the totals can swing wildly, there is great risk with totals betting in college basketball.

  • 2021-22 Kansas Over/Under Record: 20-18-2
