Oklahoma vs. Kansas State Free Pick
(The Spread) – One week after being shocked at home by Texas Tech, No. 9 Oklahoma faces another tough Big 12 challenge in No. 8 Kansas State.
Odds: Oddsmakers have installed the host Kansas State Wildcats as 13.5-point underdogs versus the visiting Oklahoma Sooners, while the over/under total for this game is currently sitting at 58.5 points. The Sooners are 3-0 on the road this year while the Wildcats are a perfect 4-0 at home.
Line Movement: The Wildcats opened as 14-point home underdogs at the Las Vegas Hilton but the line quickly dropped to 13.5 points and has stayed there ever since. The over/under total for this game has stayed at 58.5 and 59 points at most books.

College Football Free Pick: Take the Wildcats. Talk about zero respect – Kansas State has been dogged all season by oddsmakers despite its impressive 7-0 run. The difference for me in this game is that K-State should be pumped to play no matter what. Will Oklahoma be pissed or deflated following its loss to Tech last Saturday? The home dog is already a value, especially one that’s 7-0 and has covered the spread week after week According to latest college football trends, the Wildcats are 4-0 against the spread in their last four conference games and 6-0 ATS in their last six games overall. They’re also 4-1 ATS in their last five home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games as an underdog of 10.5 or greater. The Sooners, meanwhile, are 1-4 ATS in their last five conference games, which includes back-to-back failed covers against Kansas and Texas Tech.
