Kansas State gets back on track
The Kansas State football team put an end to a brief two-game losing streak last Saturday when the Wildcats earned a 24-17 win at home over TCU. Kansas State is 4-2 on the season, 1-2 in the Big 12, 4-2 against the spread and 4-2 with the under.
K-State has been led by its defense this season. The Wildcats are giving up just 18.7 points and 347.7 yards per game this year, while the offense is putting up 30.2 points and 372 yards per game. Skylar Thompson has thrown for 994 yards and seven touchdowns while rushing for 165 yards and three scores this year. James Gilbert is the leading rusher with 453 yards and four touchdowns while Dalton Schoen is the leading receiver with 18 catches for 254 yards and three scores.
Sooners in cruise control
Oklahoma made quick work of West Virginia last weekend when the Sooners earned a 52-14 win over West Virginia at home. OU is now 7-0 on the season, 4-0 in the Big 12, 4-3 against the spread and 3-3-1 with the over/under total.
The Sooners have the nation’s top offense again this season, as they are averaging 50.4 points and 612.9 yards per game. The goes along with a pretty solid defense that is giving up just 19.4 points and 327.6 yards per contest. Jalen Hurts is having a tremendous year, throwing for 2,074 yards and 20 touchdowns while rushing for 705 yards and 10 scores. Three different Oklahoma backs have over 350 rushing yards while CeeDee Lamb is the leading receiver with 31 catches for 681 yards and 10 touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 against a team with a winning record.
The Sooners are 6-2-1 against the spread in their last nine games following a win and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five against a winning team.
Oklahoma has won four straight against Kansas State while covering the spread in three of the four meetings. Despite K-State having some good defense, I don’t expect that to hold up against the Oklahoma offense. The Sooners have an offense that seemingly won’t be stopped, and a defense that is much improved from last year. I think K-State will be the ones to struggle to find offense while the Sooners keep doing their thing.
