*4 Star Play on Kansas State* Chris Klieman is a really good coach. Klieman is 12-3 ATS as an underdog in his time as Kansas State head coach thus far. He proved he could win at a very high rate at North Dakota State, and now he is maximizing talent at Kansas State.
As an underdog of 6.5 points or more, Klieman's Kansas State teams are a perfect 8-0 ATS. Matt Campbell's teams have been great as an underdog, but he has been subpar when laying bigger numbers.
Five of the last six games between these two teams have finished with a margin of 5 points or less. The only one that wasn't that close was last year when Kansas State won by 10 points at home.
Iowa State's special teams are at a big disadvantage against Kansas State and that is an area that is overlooked by many.
I like Iowa State as a team, but they are favored by 11 here with a total in the mid 40's. They are up against a high quality team that is very well coached.
I have to take the points in what should be a lower scoring game.
Take Kansas State.
