Why Bet on the Kansas State Wildcats?

Quarterback Adrian Martinez, yep, the on who had played at Nebraska for what felt like a decade, has thrived in his first season in the silver and purple.

Martinez leads the team in rushing TDs with 10. Adrian averages over 6 yards per carry. One of the reasons he’s so effective is because Deuce Vaughn is the most underrated running back in college football.

Vaughn has rushed for 1,253 yards and averages 5.3 yards per carry. If you pay attention to Adrian, you forget about Deuce and vice versa. Martinez and Vaughn are the reasons K-State averages 33.4 points per game.

Kansas State has a great offense but the true strength of the team lies with the defense. The Wildcats boast one of the nation’s top defenses.

K-State allows 358.4 total yards, which ranks fifty-eighth. The Wildcats rank fifteenth in points allowed per game at 19.4. Felix Anudike has recorded 7.5 sacks while Julius Brents has three interceptions.

Why Bet on the Georgia Bulldogs?

TCU’s offense excelled this season because Max Duggan became one of the nation’s top signal- callers. Duggan averages 274.8 passing yards each game.

Max has thrown for 3,070 yards and 29 touchdowns to just 3 interceptions. Duggan has rushed for 5 TDs. When Duggan isn’t doing his thing, Kendre Miller is. TCU’s RB1 has rushed for 16 touchdowns and 1,260 yards. Duggan, Miller, and the rest of the offense rank fourth in points per at 41.3.

Based on stats, TCU’s defense is just okay. The Horned Frogs allow more than 24 points per game on average and opponents amass a healthy 383 yards each contest.

But stats don’t tell everything. When the Frogs have had to stand tall, they have. TCU held Texas, a team that averages 35.7 points per game, to 10 in a 17-10 road victory.

Kansas State could muster just 28 in the week 6 loss to the Frogs. TCU beat Iowa State 62-14 in their final regular season game.

Kansas State vs. TCU Expert Betting Predictions

Kansas State is a quality team, but they could be in some trouble on Saturday morning. The game happens at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, which means TCU’s fans will be out in force.

Almost as important? Adrian Martinez could miss the game due to undisclosed reasons. If Martinez doesn’t play, the Wildcats won’t keep up on the scoreboard.

Not only that, but TCU’s defense has really stepped it up in recent games. The Horned Frogs escaped losing versus Baylor with a 29-28 win. Right now, it doesn’t seem like anything will stop the Frogs from a date with 2-Michigan at the College Football Playoff.

K-State will put up a fight but it won’t be enough. TCU wins and covers.
