Kansas State Coming off a Huge Win

Kansas State in the last game faced off against Baylor and they sure picked up a big win. Kansas State only scored 68 points against Baylor, but the defense only gave up 63 points. Kansas State allowed Baylor to only shoot 17.9 percent from deep and that was a big key. Kansas State on the season is averaging 74.8 points per game while the defense is giving up 67.4 points per game. The offense is ranked 180th in the league while the defense is ranked 82nd in the league. Cam Carter is having a strong season averaging 16.6 points while shooting 41.1 percent from the field. 

Oklahoma State Is Struggling

Big 12 play has not been kind for Oklahoma State and a lot of teams have just beaten up on them. In the last game against Kansas, Oklahoma’s defense gave up 90 points and that led to the 24 point defeat. Bryce Thompson was the top player putting up 20 points, two assists, and one rebounds. Oklahoma State overall is averaging 72.4 while their defense is giving up 69.4 points per game. The last couple of games the defense hasn’t been good enough and in this game the defense is going to be a whole lot better. If the defense struggles, this is going to be a long game for them. 

Oklahoma State vs Kansas State Betting Prediction

Kansas State is going to have no issue getting the job done here. Oklahoma State’s defense gave up 90 points and this game is going to get out of hand early. Kansas State might not score 90 points in this game, but they are going to put on a show with the offense and that is going to be the difference here as Kansas State is going to get this job done with ease. Back Kansas State against the spread.
