The Raiders are 4-1 straight up versus Kansas State over the last three seasons and three of five games in this series have gone under the total during the last three seasons. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings between these teams as well.
Kansas State’s offense has stalled out pretty badly over the last six games, as they haven’t notched more than 67 points in any outing during that time (and have just the one win). None of the Wildcats’ recent losses has even been all that close either.
As for Texas Tech, their offense has had some solid appearances over the last handful of games, and though they’ve been pretty choppy in spots the Raiders have also faced some tough competition lately. In any case, I’m going Texas Tech here.
