post the outright win this afternoon, note that ageless HC Bill Snyder has led his team to a bowl for seven straight years after failing to do so when he returned to coach the Wildcats in 2009. Tough call here as injury-ravaged K-State brings some good numbers into this matchup: 5-1 ATS in the previous six series meetings, 6-1 ATS as double-digit Big 12 dogs, and 3-1 ATS in Last Road Games. By comparison, Okie State has gone just 1-3 ATS of late as a double-digit conference home favorite, and 1-3 ATS in the first of back-to-back home games (finish next week versus lowly Kansas). And while the Kansas State defense has allowed an uncharacteristic 430 YPG, the Manhattan Cats are forcing foes to gain a hefty 17 yards to score a single point. The Golden Nugget in Vegas installed the Cowboys as 8-point favorites in this game prior to the start of the season, so you can see why we’re hesitant to lay 3 TDs today. With Oklahoma State’s defense giving up 414 YPG themselves – and the Pokes having no shot at catching Oklahoma in the Big 12 title race – look for QB Mason Rudolph and company to grab the win but not the cash.
