Kansas State should draw a lot of betting action on Saturday afternoon after their 4-1 record has pushed the Wildcats to #16 in the country. Nonetheless K-State is a +3.5 underdog in Morgantown.
West Virginia might have value at home, where they are 3-0 on the year. The Mountaineers are coming off a 34-27 loss at Texas Tech last week, and as -2.5 road favorites.
Kansas State Wildcats
The Wildcats have rattled off four wins in a row. It’s an impressive climb up the rankings for Kansas State, especially considering win streak is impressive after losing star QB Skylar Thompson for the year with a shoulder injury in week 3.
In Thompson’s absence, Kansas State has turned to Will Howard. The true freshman hasn’t put up spectacular numbers (less than 60% completion percentage, 557 passing yards in four games).
What Howard has done is lead the Wildcats to wins. He came in against Texas Tech and helped secure the 31-21 win. Howard also helped KSU to a 21-14 win at TCU as +11 point underdogs and a 55-14 blowout of Kansas last week.
It’s going to be tough for Kansas State getting a win in Morgantown with a freshman running the offense. The Wildcats defense does give them a chance though after holding the last three opponents to 21 points or less.
West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia looked like they were putting things together with two straight wins, but were tripped up 34-27 at Texas Tech last week. The Red Raiders got the win despite 179 yards on the ground and only 169 through the air.
It was another solid defensive outing for the most part for West Virginia, who rank 6th in yards allowed this season, including 8th against the pass with 152.6 yds/game.
Howard had his best game last week for K-State with 243 yards and 2 TD, but that was against Kansas as -18.5 favorites.
Kansas State’s worst defensive outing of the season was ironically the 38-35 win over Oklahoma in week 4. Spencer Rattler threw for 387 yards in that game, which bodes well for WVU Jarrett Doege who has back-to-back 300+ yard games.
