Kansas State Looks to Rebound from Heartbreaking Overtime Loss to Hand No. 6 TCU First Loss of Season
The Kansas State Wildcats will look to rebound from their heartbreaking Week 6 loss while handing sixth-ranked TCU their first loss of the season when they host the Horned Frogs at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in an intriguing Week 7 Big 12 battle.
TCU has played exceptional football all season long and looks like they’re going to be tough to beat, even on the road against a K-State team that is a bit-semi desperate to keep their conference championship hopes alive at this point. Now, let’s find out if TCU can avoid the road loss and cover the Week 7 college football betting line as a less than a touchdown favorite.
TCU vs Kansas State NCAAF Week 7 Line & Free Pick
No. 6 TCU Horned Frogs (5-0) at Kansas State Wildcats (3-2)
When: Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 12:00 PM ET
Where: Snyder Family Stadium
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Line: TCU -4.5
Why Bet the TCU Horned Frogs Line at -4.5
No. 6 TCU remained unbeaten by handing a very good West Virginia squad a 31-24 loss in their Week 6 conference clash as quarterback Kenny Hill completed 15 of 28 passes for 188 yards and one touchdown while adding one rushing score and another receiving touchdown in a fantastic all-around effort. For the season, Hill is completing a blistering 69 percent of his passes for 1,153 yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. The Horned Frogs are averaging a stupendous 44.4 points per game (7th) while limiting the opposition t just 19.6 points per contest defensively (31st).
Why Bet the Kansas State Wildcats Line at +4.5
The Kansas State Wildcats put up a great effort but ended up suffering a heartbreaking 40-24 overtime loss against Texas in their Week 6 conference matchup despite finishing the game as a push as 6-point road underdogs against the college football betting line. Quarterback Jesse Ertz completed 12 of 18 passes for 224 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the loss while backup quarterback Alex Delton rushed 12 times for 79 yards and two scores. The good news coming into their Week 7 matchup against TCU is that the Wildcats have won four consecutive home games. For the season, Ertz is completing a modest 55 percent of his passes for 930 yards with seven touchdowns and two interceptions. K-State is averaging a fantastic 36.8 points per game (30th) while limiting the opposition to just 20.0 points per contest defensively (33rd).
TCU vs K-State Free Pick
I’ve always loved Bill Snyder’s K-State teams and I do this year as well. However, TCU is playing outstanding football on both sides of the ball this season and Kenny Hill hasn’t gotten all turnover crazy like I expected him to by this point.
The Horned Frogs are a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four road games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS loss and I believe they’re going to eke out the narrow win and ATS cover in this one even though Kansas State has gone 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games following a straight up loss and 33-16-2 ATS in their last 51 games in the month of October.
Pick: TCU -4.5
