Kansas State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games. The under is 6-1 in Kansas State’s last 7 games. Oklahoma is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 Saturday games. The over is 5-2 in Oklahoma’s last 7 Saturday games. The home team is 8-2-1 ATS in these two teams last 11 meetings.
Both of these teams have started the season going in the right direction and have similar numbers in a lot of categories. I do think Oklahoma is the better team and should win, but I like Kansas State to keep it within the number.
