Fade Texas ATS vs Kansas State

Neither Kansas State (15-10, 5-7 Big 12) nor Texas (16-9, 5-7) have been exactly great in Big 12 play this season. The teams share the same record in conference play and are at the bottom half of the conference standings. That could make this game difficult for best college basketball bets today.

The visiting Wildcats faced TCU in their last game, losing 75-72 at home, and now have only one win over the previous seven games. The Longhorns also lost their last game, falling to Houston 83-61 on the road.

Kansas State vs Texas ATS Pick: Kansas State +8½

A big reason why Kansas State has struggled so much ATS the spread recently is because it has been favored in three of its last five games. The Wildcats have failed to cover when they were favored in college basketball spreads.

However, in the two games in which Kansas State did cover, it was the underdog. One cover was a straight-up overtime win against Kansas as three-point underdogs. The Wildcats then covered an 11-point spread against BYU, losing 72-66.

On top of that, part of the reason why it is hard to side with Texas for college basketball picks is its own ATS issues. On the season, the Longhorns have only covered in nine of 25 games, which hurts their chances of covering in this matchup.

However, it is worth noting that Texas has just played through a difficult part of its schedule. Seven of the last eight opponents for the Longhorns were ranked and they went 4-4 in covering four spreads.

 

Kansas State vs Texas Over/Under Pick: Over 141

The biggest reason for this game being an over is probably Texas. The Longhorns are a team that is built to hit the over, and they have done so in 14 of 25 games this season. Furthermore, they have hit the over in seven of the last 10 games.

The reason for that is that Texas has a blend of a strong offense with a struggling defense. The Longhorns are averaging 73 points against Big 12 opponents, which ranks sixth. On the other hand, they are giving up 72.8, ranked 10th in the conference.

That is a big reason for college basketball predictions to start leaning toward the over. Kansas State also seems to be finding a groove offensively. Camryn Carter and Tylor Perry average over 15 points this season. Perry also had 24 points in the loss to TCU.

 

Kansas State vs Texas Player Prop Pick: Max Abmas Over 15.5 points (-176)

For most of the season, Max Abmas for Texas has been one of the top scorers on the team. He is leading the team in points per game this season (17.3). However, in the loss to Houston, Abmas only had seven points, going 2 of 14 from the field. At home, Abmas should be in for a much better game despite Kansas State having a decent defense.
