Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Miami Florida Over -

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.
