Kansas State gets the big upset
Kansas State had perhaps the biggest upset win of the season this season last weekend when they defeated unbeaten Oklahoma 48-41 at home in a game they controlled most of the way. The Wildcats are now 5-2 on the season, 2-2 in the Big 12, 5-2 against the spread and 4-3 with the under.
The Wildcats haven’t been known for offense this year, as they are averaging just 32.7 points and 379.7 yards per game, which isn’t eye-popping on the national scale. Defensively, K-State is allowing 21.9 points and 369 yards per contest. Skylar Thompson is leading the offense with 1,207 passing yards and seven touchdowns while also rushing for 204 yards and seven scores. James Gilbert is the leading rusher with 558 yards and five touchdowns while Dalton Schoen is the leading receiver with 23 catches for 322 yards and three scores.
Kansas ends losing skid
Kansas put an end to a four-game losing streak last weekend with a 37-34 win at home over Texas Tech. The Jayhawks are now 3-5 on the season, 1-4 in the Big 12, 4-4 against the spread and 5-3 with the over.
The Jayhawks have really been struggling on defense this year, allowing 32.8 points and 473.5 yards per game. Offensively, Kansas has managed to average 27.8 points and 402.9 yards per game. Carter Stanley has played well at QB, throwing for 1,900 yards with 19 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Pooka Williams Jr. has also been strong on the ground, rushing for 704 yards and three touchdowns this year. Andrew Parchment has caught 42 passes for 614 yards and six scores to lead the receivers.
College Football Betting Trends
The Wildcats are 9-2 with the under in their last 11 games on fieldturf and 6-2 with the under in their last eight Big 12 games.
The Jayhawks are 5-1 with the over in their last six games overall and in four of their last five conference games.
These two have hit the under in their last two meetings, but the Kansas offense wasn’t quite able to break out in those games. Kansas State was ranked earlier this year and struggled to two losses against Oklahoma State and Baylor where its offense let it down. I don’t see the offense letting it down against a bad Kansas defense, but I think the Wildcats could see a defensive letdown after an emotional win over the Sooners. Kansas has a respectable offense that has put up some points this year. Being at home, I like Kansas to make this a bit of a shootout and hit the over.
