Oklahoma vs. Kansas State Prediction

I’m on Kansas State here. Oklahoma has picked up some solid performances here and there, but for the most part this season, the Sooners have had problems holding their own on the road. Kansas State boasts one of the tougher road environments for opposing teams in college basketball, and I just think that K-State’s home court edge will be enough here to push them over the finish line. Give me the Wildcats here.
