The Kansas State Wildcats are 4-0 this season and they earned their way into this game by slamming Missouri on Monday. KSU is averaging 80 points and they are shooting 42.4 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 59.5 points and their opponents are shooting 37.8 percent. Justin Edwards leads the Wildcats with 16 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. Wesley Iwundu is averaging 14 points, Dean Wade is averaging 13.5 points and 6.3 rebounds, and Barry Brown is averaging 10.3 points. Kansas State has solid depth to compete with the top of the college basketball food chain.
North Carolina is 8-3-1 against the spread in their last 12 neutral site games, 0-5 against the spread against the Big 12, and 1-3-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Kansas State is 4-1 against the spread in their last five non-conference games and 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games.
The total looks low for two teams that score 80 plus points per game so my free oick here is over.
