A week after being tabbed a 3-point underdog yet winning on the road by a single point, oddsmakers this week are showing a tad more respect for Oklahoma State, as the Cowboys open the week as 6-point favorites to topple Kansas State on Saturday in the team’s conference-opener.
The Cowboys opened as 7.5-point favorites at William Hill and as big as 9-point favorites elsewhere. The line has been bet down to 6 or 6.5 points at most sportsbooks.
OSU is 0-2 against the spread this season as a home favorite with one-possession wins over Missouri State and Tulsa despite being double-digit favorites in both contests. The Cowboys were 2-3 last season against the spread in such situations. In five outings as home favorites last season, they won four times.
Kansas State has been an underdog only once this season, and that came in Week 1 where it won 24-7 over Stanford. The Wildcats won three times last season in eight games in which they were underdogs.
