Kansas State vs Texas Betting Prediction

Kansas State comes into this game playing pretty poorly and they have lost six of their last seven games. The Wildcats have allowed at least 70 points in seven straight games and they are 0-5 in their last five road games. Texas is also 5-7 in the conference this season and they have been inconsistent all season long. The Longhorns haven’t been as bad as Kansas State, but they have struggled against ranked teams over the last few weeks. I like Texas to get the win in this game, but I think it is closer than people think, so give me the points with Kansas State.
