You guys know how I feel about Bill Snyder, as the guy simply finds ways to compete and gets his lesser talented teams to find ways to cover spreads or even pull off upsets. You'll make a profit taking the Kansas State Wildcats and the points whenever you can. Kansas State has won two of the last four meetings against Oklahoma and the road team has won the last five games overall. Oklahoma also hasn't looked very good and it's defense has allowed 40-plus points in three straight games. This is a game where Kansas State at the very least can hang around due to the Sooners constant struggles defensively.
Give me Kansas State and the points.
