Kansas Opens As A 30 Point Underdog Against Texas A&M

Certainly this has become a fairly predictable event.  The lines are released and Kansas is HUGE underdog to their upcoming opponent.  But given the last two weeks is anyone a little surprised by the size of this one? 

Kansas enters the week as a 30 point underdog as they prepare to go on the road and face Texas A&M in College Station.  Yes A&M is a solid team, it's a road game for Kansas and the Jayhawks have dropped games by a large margin several times this year, but is A&M 30 points better than Kansas based on the way these two teams are playing right now?

The Aggies are currently on a three game skid and their has been some talk that perhaps Mike Sherman might be on the hot seat.  Overall A&M is 5-5 with a 3-4 conference record and with the final Texas game on the horizon it's possible that the Aggies could look past Kansas.  I'm not suggesting that the Jayhawks are going to walk in and come away with a win, I'm just a tiny bit surprised by the 30 point line. 

Then again, the last two weeks have been the exception and not the rule when it comes to betting on or against Kansas.  I don't know if there are any sort of statistics related to this, but something tells me the Jayhawks have been one of the safer bets in all of sports this fall.
