Even though the Wildcats (-220) are expected to win, risking more than 2 times your potential return isn’t advised.
KANSAS STATE -4.5 (-115) is the lean with the Wildcats being the superior team. The Wildcats are 10-0 at home while the Red Raiders are 0-3 in true road games, and we only need Kansas State to win by at least 5.
