Shane’s Free Pick
The defense really stepped up in the last game against Wisconsin for Providence and they are going to step up again in this game. Kansas State’s offense has been good overall, but they are going to struggle here, and that is going to be the difference here as Providence is going to get the job done. Back Providence to cover the spread here.
