The St. Louis Billikens are 5-6 this season and have lost their last three games and six of their last seven. Saint Louis is averaging 66.2 points and they are shooting 44.3 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 66.5 points and their opponents are shooting 39.6 percent.

Kansas State is 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight non-conference games, 5-1-1 against the spread following a win, and 4-1 against the spread after allowing less than 50 points in their previous game. St. Louis is 13-37-1 against the spread in their last 51 games, 1-4 against the spread following a double-digit home loss, and 0-8 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread.
This is a lousy St. Louis team and I look for KSU to blast them.
