According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the over/under win total odds for Kansas State has been set at 7.5 this season. The over has odds of -130, while the under has been given a money line of +100.

Kansas State is coming off an 8-5 record last season and 4-4 mark in the Big 12. The Wildcats were 2-4 at one point, but finished the season winning six of their last seven. Bill Snyder is entering his 23rd year as head coach of the team.

Offensively, Kansas State has six starters back this year, led by quarterback Jake Waters. More of a passer than previous K-State QBs, Waters had 2,469 yards and 18 touchdowns last year with just nine interceptions. Waters has top receiving target back in Tyler Lockett, who had 81 catches for 1,262 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013. The concern for K-State is the offensive line, which is inexperienced, and running back.

Defensively, Kansas State has five starters back. The Wildcats allowed 22.9 points and 358.8 yards per game last year, which ranked third in the conference. Leading the unit will be senior defensive end Ryan Mueller, who had 11.5 sacks in 2013, which tied a K-State season record. Also back is Jonathan Truman at linebacker. He had 89 tackles in 2013. Dante Barnett, a junior safety, will lead the secondary after nabbing four interceptions a year ago.

Bet on College Football Futures Odds

Kansas State has one tough non-conference game, which at home with Auburn on Aug. 18. That game could really put the Wildcats on the map this season. Big 12 play features home games with Texas Tech, Texas, Oklahoma State and Kansas along with road trips to Iowa State, Oklahoma, TCU, West Virginia and Baylor. The Wildcats close the season with three of their last four on the road, which could present some problems. The Big 12 looks to be awfully competitive this year, so eight wins could be tough. The real make-or-break game could be with Auburn. If the Wildcats win that, eight should be doable.
