Wildcats fall in ugly game at Tulsa
Kansas State lost a 47-46 decision at the Golden Hurricane last Saturday to drop to 6-2 on the season. Xavier Sneed was the only Wildcats player in double figures for scoring as he had 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting to go with 10 rebounds. Kanas State only shot 18-of-59 from the floor, while holding Tulsa to 19-of-50 shooting.
College Basketball Betting Trends
The over is 5-1 in the last six Panthers games overall. The over is 5-1 in the last six GSU road games.
The under is 12-4-1 in the last 17 Wildcats home games. The under is 12-5-1 in the last 18 Kansas State games on Saturdays.
The Wildcats are third nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency. Meanwhile, Georgia State is better offensively than on the defensive end. But I think the road environment and the Wildcats' tendency to play deliberate and slow will frustrate the Panthers. I see Kansas State dictating the pace and resting on its defense. Go with the under in this spot.
