West Virginia vs. Kansas State College Basketball Predictions 1/1/18

Can No. 7 West Virginia go on the road and take care of business against Kansas State when the two teams meet up at 5PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, West Virginia is favored on the road, as the Mountaineers are getting odds of -2 points against Kansas State. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 148.5 points. Today’s game takes place from Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kansas and will air live on ESPNU.

The Mountaineers are rolling along right now, sitting at 12-1 on the season and 1-0 in the Big 12 after an 85-79 win at Oklahoma State. WVU is 4-5 against the spread this season. The Mountaineers are averaging 84.8 points per game this season while giving up 64.6 per contest. Jevon Carter is averaging 17.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game to lead the team.

Kansas State has won three straight coming into tonight’s game, including a 91-75 win at Iowa State on Friday night. The Wildcats are 11-2 on the season and 3-7 against the spread. K-State has covered in just one of their last four games. Kansas State is averaging 77.8 points per game on offense while allowing 63.2 per contest. At home, K-State is giving up 55.9 per contest. Barry Brown is leading the team with 14.9 points per game while Dean Wade is averaging 14.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per contest.

Bet on West Virginia vs. Kansas State

West Virginia has won seven of its last eight meetings with Kansas State, but the Wildcats are 4-2 against the spread in their last six encounters. Both teams are coming into today’s game with momentum, but the Wildcats have a defense that I think can give West Virginia some real problems. WVU is just 2-6-1 against the spread in their last 9 Big 12 games. The public betting is with West Virginia, but I like Kansas State to get the upset.
