Why Kansas State is a good bet at +16?

If not for a 10-31 loss to Mississippi State, Kansas State might be undefeated this season. The Wildcats beat South Dakota State 27-24 in Week 1 before dominating Texas-San Antonio 41-17 in Week 3. K-State’s offense found a rhythm in the victory over the UTSA Road Runners, notching 449 total yards. The 449 total yards included 164 rushing yards. If K-State’s offense gets into a rhythm on Saturday, it could stick with the Mountaineers’ offense.

Why West Virginia is a good bet at -16?

Is West Virginia a safe bet in NCAA Football Week 4? West Virginia heads into their first Big 12 battle of the season off a bye. In WVU’s last game, they dominated overmatched Youngstown State 52-17. That game didn’t impress. The game that did impress happened in Week 1 when WVU only allowed Tennessee to score 10 points in a 41-10 Mountaineers win. West Virginia’s defense held the Tennessee Vols to 301 total yards. If West Virginia’s defense plays that way versus Kansas State’s offense, the Mountaineers can blow out the Wildcats.

Offense:
  • Average Score For: 46

Kansas State at #13 West Virginia Final Analysis:

When Kansas State faced a team with a similar offense to West Virginia’s, they failed to hold that team to less than 30 points. Mississippi State dominated K-State’s offense, meaning that unless the Wildcats’ D suddenly becomes Alabama’s, the only chance K-State has of keeping this close is to score with West Virginia. That’s not likely to happen because even though all signs pointed to West Virginia having a terrible defense this season, so far, the Mountaineers have rocked opposing offenses. WVU should dominate K-State from the kick-off. West Virginia rolls to an easy win and cover. NCAA Football Week 4 Pick: West Virginia -16
