The Kansas Jayhawks football program has been downright brutal for near 7 years now. Specifically, after getting off to a 5-0 start in 2009 under former head coach Mark Mangino, Kansas has gone an abysmal 13-68 (.160) since, and have bankrupted their backers to the tune of 27-54 ATS (33.3%). Needless to say, when assessing weekly college football odds on Kansas, wagering against them this college football season has made bettors a sizable loot.

Road Woes of Epic Proportions

Since 10/17/2009, Kansas has lost 37 away games in a row. College football odds pertaining to Kansas hasn’t seen the Jayhawks be tabbed as road favorite since 10/31/2009, and its last 35 away contests have come with an underdog tag. During this prolonged 37-game road losing streak, Kansas is also a pathetic 8-29 ATS (21.6%), and that includes 1-20 ATS if they allowed 40 points or less during their previous contest.

No Home Sweet Home

There’s been little reprieve for Kansas fans even when playing at home.

The Jayhawks are a terrible 13-31 during their last 44 home games.

What’s even more troubling, 5 of those 13 wins at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence came against FCS opponents, and it includes their only victory this season against Rhode Island. They also lost to FCS opponents North Dakota State and South Dakota along the way. As a matter of fact, Kansas is 8-29 (.216) in their last 37 home games versus FBS schools. If you’re desperate for a positive betting parameter regarding college football odds relating to Kansas at home, they’re 7-1 ATS during their previous 8 games at Memorial Stadium as an underdog of 18.5 to 27.0.

Head Coaching Carousel in Lawrence

It seems like light years ago that former head coach Mark Mangino led Kansas to a 12-1 record, and a season ending 24-21 Orange Bowl win over Virginia Tech. That Jayhawks team garnered a #7 ranking in the final AP Poll. Mangino guided Kansas to an 8-5 record during the following season, and that included an Insight Bowl 42-21 win over Minnesota. After Kansas lost their last 7 games of 2009, Mangino was abruptly fired, and he’s had the last laugh ever since. Kansas is now on their third head coach in 7 seasons. Turner Gill (5-19), Charlie Weis (7-29), and present head coach David Beatty (1-14) have gone a combined 13-62 (.173).
