Kansas State is 2-5 against the spread against the Big 12, 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games, and 1-5 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Texas is 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games, 6-2 against the spread following a double-digit home loss, and 7-2 against the spread against the Big 12. The favorite has covered the point spread in seven of the last nine meetings of these two teams.
Texas has looked bad without Cameron Ridley and I don’t expect that to change here on the road.
