Kansas State is 0-3 ATS as road favorites of three or fewer points the last two-plus seasons.
The Wildcats are averaging 68.7 points on 45.1 percent shooting during their seven true road games, while allowing opponents to score 76.4 points a contest on 46.1 percent shooting in that situation. Kansas State is first in the Big 12 in terms of allowing 64.1 points per game, as it has held 14 of its last 27 opponents to its season-low in points.
Texas Tech will look to put an end to a three-game losing streak, which includes a 84-62 setback to the Oklahoma State Cowboys as 10-point road underdogs last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total for the first time in eight contests. The Red Raiders have two probable starters averaging in double figures, with senior forward Jaye Crockett leading the way at 14.3 points a contest, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball odds page.
