The Cyclones are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games. The Wildcats are 20-6-1 ATS in their last 27 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win. The Cyclones are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Kansas State and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
Kansas State has just picked up a couple of nice wins and knows this is another chance. I like the physical style of KSU to get the job done here against a softer ISU squad. Take the Wildcats in an outright win.
