BookMaker has the Texas Longhorns listed as 4-point favorites at home against the Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday afternoon in week 10 of the college football season. Texas has won eight of the last ten including the previous six meetings in a row while going 6-4 ATS in the last ten and 3-0 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Kansas State Wildcats are 6-2 ATS overall, 1-2 ATS on the road, 1-0 ATS as an underdog, and 4-1 ATS in conference games this season while the Texas Longhorns are 4-4 ATS overall, 2-2 ATS at home, 3-4 ATS as a favorite, and 3-2 ATS in conference games on the year.
Texas will be without Quinn Ewers again this week and even though it didn’t matter last week, that was against an inferior opponent, while this week they will be playing against one of the better teams in the conference. Kansas State has been one of the best teams at covering the spread in the Big 12 going 6-2 ATS overall and 4-1 ATS in their conference games this season which is why I am taking the points with the Kansas State Wildcats when they face the Texas Longhorns on the road.
