Oklahoma State @ Kansas State

The Cowboys are in Kansas to take on the 11th-ranked Wildcats.

This Oklahoma State team knows how to score… unless they are facing a ranked opponent. They are averaging 72 points per game against non-ranked teams — topping out at 91 against Oakland — and 60 against teams with a number next to their name. 

K State doesn’t care who they are playing; they score like an NBA team. The Wildcats put up 116 on Texas and 97 on Baylor. 

So while the over is a decent play, given that Kansas State could score 100 themselves, their team prop is a much smarter play.

K-State Over 70.5 Points (-106)

Oklahoma was able to hang tough with Kansas, only losing by 2, but they won’t have the same luck here. A two-bucket spread is so disrespectful to the 11th-ranked team in the country.

K-State -5.5 (-105)

Ball State @ Ohio

Ohio hosts the Ball State Cardinals, and despite being at the bottom of the conference, they are a (-2.5) favorite.

Ohio was having a decent season until they entered conference play. They have yet to win a game in the MAC, but they are hoping to turn things around against a Ball State team they have dominated in recent years.

Ball State is having the best season they have had in quite some time. They are 2-0 in conference play and 11-4 overall. The Bobcats have been their kryptonite for quite some time, losing eight of their last ten meetings. However, it looks like they finally have the squad to knock them off.

This will be a fast-paced game, as both these teams have incredible scorers, but bettors can expect Ball State to hold strong down the stretch.

Over 145 (-110) & Ball State (+115)
