Bet on Oklahoma State (+3) Because…
It appears that Oklahoma State has turned the corner. In the first month of college football, the Cowboys didn’t play all that well. Oklahoma State was 2-2 straight up. But since that time, the Cowboys have been on fire. Oklahoma State has won 4 games in a row. No win was bigger than this past Saturday when the Cowboys beat West Virginia 37 to 20 as a +4.5 home dog.
Bet on Kansas State (-3) Because…
Kansas State is tough to beat at home. The Wildcats are 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 games versus a team with a winning road record. Not only that, but Oklahoma State is terrible in Manhattan, KS. The Cowboys are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings at K-State. Oklahoma State is also 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Although the trends point to a Kansas State cover against the spread, there’s something different about this Oklahoma State team. The Cowboys are much better now than they were during the first month of the season.
The way that Oklahoma State tore apart West Virginia’s defense for 37 points was impressive. West Virginia has a legit D. It held Texas Tech to only 17 points. But Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph could not be stopped. He threw 3 TDs. He threw for 273 yards.
As well as Rudolph played, Oklahoma State probably got lucky beating West Virginia straight up in that game. The Cowboys allowed the Mountaineers to rush for 209 yards from 41 carries. West Virginia averaged over 5 yards per carry.
K-State rushes for 192.6 yards on average per game. On defense, the Wildcats only allow 21.6 points. I like Kansas State to cover the spread in this match up due to their rushing attack and better defense.
