College Football Betting Trends
The Longhorns are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven conference games and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games in November.
The Wildcats are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games overall and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following a win.
Texas has won three of the last four against K-State, but the Wildcats are 2-0-1 against the spread in their last three against the Longhorns. The Texas defense is a mess again this year, allowing at least 30 points in five straight games, including two at home against the likes of Oklahoma State and Kansas. If Kansas can put up 48 on Texas, I think Kansas State can find a fair amount of points. Texas has a potent offense, but the K-State defense is no push over. I think this is going to be a close, high-scoring game that the Wildcats will keep within a score, if not win outright.
