Why Bet on the Kansas State Wildcats

Kansas State recorded a closer-than-expected 39-33 win over Louisiana Tech in Week 3 despite failing to cover the spread as a 10-point home favorite. Quarterback Joe Hubener completed 15 of 26 passes for 195 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. For the season, Hubener is completing 53.7 percent of his passes for 585 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Why Bet on the Oklahoma State Cowboys

Oklahoma State squeaked past unranked Texas in Week 3, but just barely. The Cowboys won 30-27 to narrowly cover the spread as a 2.5-point road fave. Quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 22 of 34 passes for 290 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, but it was Oklahoma State’s defense that really got the job done by limiting Texas to just 4-for-16 success on third downs (25%). Rudolph is completing 67.7 percent of his passes for 1,237 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions. Rudolph has thrown two or more touchdown in five of his seven career starts.

My Expert Game Analysis and Betting Pick

A slim 51 percent of the betting public likes K-State to cover the spread as road dogs in this contest and I agree, mostly because this game has the look and feel of a classic field goal contest. K-State has gone 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 games against a team with a winning record and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 road games against a team with a winning home record.

Conversely, Oklahoma State is just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and just 1-4 ATS in their last five home games against the Cats. With K-State posting a perfect 4-0 ATS mark in their last four meetings against their Big 12 rivals, I say the Wildcats are the easy pick to cover a point spread that is several points too high. As far as the Over/Under total is concerned, 63 percent of the betting public likes the Over and I agree with each of the last four meetings between these teams easily topping the set O/U Total for this game. The Over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Oklahoma State and 4-0 in the last four meetings overall.

The Pick: K-State 35 Oklahoma State 31
