The Wildcats are 5-0 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 10-3 ATS in the last 13 November games. Kansas State is 3-1-1 ATS in the last five overall.
Meanwhile, Texas is 1-7 ATS in the last eight Friday games and 0-6 ATS in the last six overall. Texas is 0-5 ATS in their last five in November.
PICK: I’m going to stick with Kansas State. The Wildcats had a pretty solid game against a great Baylor team on Saturday and would have been even better without the two turnovers. I like Kansas State to build off that effort in this one.
As for Texas, they weren’t able to make much of an offensive impact against West Virginia with 355 total yards, 16 first downs and 2-of-10 on third-down tries. The Longhorns didn’t have the ball for very long either. If Kansas State can replicate that sort of clock-control game they should be fine on a cover here.
