LINE: Texas -7.5
ATS PICK: Kansas State
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
It’s a problem if you have to search for reasons why the home favorite is going to win by more than a touchdown.
Texas is still Texas. It has the talent, it has QB Sam Ehlinger, and it has the offensive pop to open it up and make Kansas State struggle out of its comfort zone.
This is a Wildcat team that lost at home to Baylor by 19 when the parts weren’t working right, and it dropped a road trip to Oklahoma State when they somehow managed just 13 points against that miserable defense.
But the team has it figured out over the last three weeks.
The running game is clicking, the team is winning the time of possession battle, and the defense was able to rise up and shut down TCU and Kansas, and hang on for dear life against Oklahoma.
Meanwhile, Texas has lost two of its last three, dropped games to OU and TCU, and needed everything in the bag to get by Kansas.
Kansas State is playing well, and Texas isn’t. You’re getting 7.5 points to figure out if the trends are going to hold.
