The Kansas State Wildcats look to snap a six-game losing streak. The Kansas State Wildcats are averaging 63.4 points on 42.6 percent shooting and allowing 72.1 points on 47.8 percent shooting.

The Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Bears are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Wildcats last 8 overall. The underdog is 8-3-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings. The road team is 8-3-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Kansas State Wildcats just don’t have the horses at either end of the floor to compete this season in the Big 12, and they’re not covering numbers despite being big underdogs nightly. The Baylor Bears have been one of the more consistent teams in the country both SU and ATS dating back to last season and you should probably keep riding the hot hand until it runs cold. I’ll lay the big number with Baylor at home.
