Kansas State is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the under is 8-1-1 in their last 10 games following a loss. Baylor is 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a bye week and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 home games. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
This is a hard game to call as you have a struggling Kansas State team giving up points to a bad Baylor team but Baylor’s at home. With that said, I feel the better play here is on the total and I’ll side with the under. Offense has been hard to come by for both of these teams, for Baylor it’s been much of the season that’s been the issue and for Kansas State it’s been more recent, but this is a game I could see finishing 24-17 or something in that area so I’ll take the under here.
