There are certain angles that many bettors subscribe to, with one of the most popular being the infamous, "let down" spot. There will be many out there believing that Kansas State is in such a situation after beating Oklahoma last week, 48-41, as a 23.5-point 'dog. However, the Jayhawks bested the Horned Frogs two weeks ago, 24-17 as a 4.5-point underdog. The "let down" would have happened a week ago. With back-to-back wins and covers, I feel K State is brimming with confidence and starting to stride. I know Kansas enters this game on a three-game cover streak and has covered the last three in this series, however, there are new coaches involved this season, looking to start new traditions and this team just falls short on talent. The Wildcats are healthy and match up well here. Behind the legs of running backs, Gilbert and Brown, they have a potent rushing attack (165.4 yards per game on the ground). This will allow dual-threat quarterback, Thompson (1,207 yards passing 7/1 in the air, 204 yards rushing, eight TD's on the ground) to work his magic against the nation's 106th ranked defense (32.8 PPG allowed). The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS the last five at the Jayhawks, 7-3 ATS the last 10 on the road, and 7-2 ATS the last nine overall. Take Kansas State. Thank you.
