Why Houston can cover

Kansas is in uncharted territory, as it has not won three straight games to open a season in more than a decade. The Jayhawks have also not won back-to-back road games since 2007, so it is unlikely that they pull off an upset on Saturday. Houston is going to be motivated for its home opener after beating UTSA in triple overtime before losing to Texas Tech in double overtime last week. 

The Cougars are an outstanding offensive team, led by senior quarterback Clayton Tune, who has thrown for 472 yards and four touchdowns through two games. Freshman running back Brandon Campbell has also provided a spark, rushing for 129 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries. Kansas is 2-14 in its last 16 road games, while Houston is on a six-game home winning streak. 

Why Kansas can cover

Kansas has been one of the most surprising teams in the country through the first two weeks of the season, blowing out Tennessee Tech before upsetting West Virginia as a double-digit underdog. The Jayhawks lead the country in points per game (55.5), which starts with quarterback Jalon Daniels. He has thrown for 408 yards and four touchdowns, while running back Devin Neal has 14 carries for 150 yards and four touchdowns. 

They are facing a Houston defense that has struggled this season, ranking outside the top 100 nationally in scoring defense. The Cougars have played five total overtime periods in their first two games, which will make it challenging for them to match the Jayhawks’ energy on Saturday. In addition, Kansas has covered the spread in five consecutive games.
