4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Texas -8.5
This could be seen as a trap game for Texas who just took down USC and TCU and will get to host Oklahoma after this contest, but it just feels like Texas is building momentum.
Texas’ defense has gotten their act together giving up an average of 17 PPG in their last three contests and will get to face a sub-par Kansas State offense.
Kansas State may be feeling good about this contest as they’ve owned Texas against the spread going 11-3 in their last 14 contests against them, but thats really all they have going for them.
If this Texas squad wants to prove to the doubters that they are back, then winning winnable road contests is a must.
