College Football Betting Trends
The Wildcats are 13-3 with the under in their last 16 games on fieldturf and in nine of their last 13 games following a win.
The Longhorns are 21-8 with the under in their last 29 games in November and 37-16 with the under in their last 53 games against a winning team.
These two have hit the under in five of their last six meetings. The only over was an overtime game in 2017. Texas has been struggling as of late, but their defense has been the biggest issue. The Longhorns have allowed at least 30 points in five straight games. That’s a good sign for Kansas State. The Wildcats haven’t been a great offense this year, but they have been able to take advantage of bad defenses in recent weeks. As good as the K-State defense can be at times, Texas is sure to find some points. The Longhorns are good for about 28 points at least, especially at home. I think these two find their way to an over, as the Texas defense continues to give up big plays.
