Kansas State is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 conference games. Texas is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a bye week. Kansas State is 9-2-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings between these two teams.

The Wildcats haven’t been flashy, but Kansas State has played some solid football, including that massive win over Oklahoma followed up by pummelling Kansas. Texas on the other hand, has had an extra week to rest up and prepare for this game, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Longhorns have been far from dominant at home this season. The Longhorns had to battle to scrape by the same Kansas Jayhawks that the Wildcats just beat the heck out of, allowing 48 points in the win. Texas’ last four home games have either been an outright loss, or a win by no more than 6. I just think Kansas State poses a tougher test than a lot of people are giving them credit for, so I’ll take a shot at Kansas State and the points in a game I see the Wildcats winning outright.
