Why Kansas State Will Cover The Spread/Win

Texas is right in the middle of the Big-12 on offense, and defense. The Longhorns also allow the fifth-highest field goal percentage in the conference. This means Kansas State has a pretty good chance to do some scoring in this game, and that is exactly what they have to do in order to win. If the Wildcats can score above their season average, they will come out of this game covering the spread.

Kansas State has three players averaging in the double-digits. The Wildcats need these three players to have a good game if they want to win. As long as Kansas State gets a good game from Perry, Kaluma, and Carter, they should give Texas some fits.

Why Texas Will Cover The Spread/Win

Texas should be able to hold Kansas State to a minimum on the scoring end. Kansas State scores the third-fewest points per game in the Big-12. It is 71.9, so it is not too low, but Texas needs to work it to their advantage. If Texas allows Kansas State to control them on offense, they will have no chance. However, I expect Texas to be very good defensively in this game. If they are, they will cover the spread.

Kansas State also allows the fifth-most points in the conference. Texas should be able to have a good offensive game in this one because of that. With that Kansas State allows the fifth-most threes per game in the Big-12. If Texas can make their shots, and get hot from the outside, they will have success.

Final Kansas State-Texas Prediction & Pick

Home and away games matter a lot in college, and Texas is the home team in this one. Texas 11-4 at home this season, and Kansas State is 2-5 on the road. I am going to take Texas to cover the spread.
