The Kansas State Wildcats could use a big win after losing their last five games. On the season, KSU is averaging 64.2 points on 44.7 percent shooting and is allowing 63.5 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Nino Williams is averaging 11.5 points and 4.9 rebounds while Thomas Gipson is averaging 11.1 points and 4.8 rebounds. Jevon Thomas is dishing 3.4 assists and Justin Edwards is grabbing 3.5 rebounds.

Defensively, KSU is allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and has given up 64 or less points in six of its last 10 games. Marcus Foster is questionable for this game.
The Sooners are 20-5-1 ATS in their last 26 Saturday games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wildcats are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. The Sooners are 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Kansas State and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
While Kansas State is usually tough to beat at home, the Wildcats haven't shown any type of consistency this season. Meanwhile, Oklahoma continues to impress, especially on the offensive end which is an area KSU can go cold for long stretches. Give me the Sooners and the small chalk.
