Kansas State Wildcats vs. Iowa State Cyclones, 11/22/18 Predictions & Odds

cLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE

Usually, Big 12 matchups come with high betting totals but that isn’t the case when Kansas State and Iowa State meet. The Cyclones host the Wildcats at 7:00 p.m. ET and with the total sitting in the low-40s, is the under a safe play for bettors?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Cyclones are 13.5-point favorites to beat the Wildcats. The total, meanwhile, sits at 40.5 points. As of this writing, 58% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Cyclones.

Kansas State Wildcats

Kansas State redshirt sophomore QB Skylar Thompsoncompleted 17-of-26 passes for 213 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Saturday’s 21-6 win against Texas Tech. Thompson returned to action after missing last week’s rivalry game due to an undisclosed injury suffered early in the TCU game on Nov. 3. He didn’t show any ill effects of the injury, and he tossed his first touchdown since Oct. 6 at Baylor. It’s been a slow go for Thompson this season, and he has managed only two touchdown passes in parts of the past seven games. He and his teammates are still alive for bowl eligibility, but they’ll need to pull the road upset at Iowa State on Nov. 24.

Iowa State Cyclones

Iowa State freshman QB Brock Purdy was replaced by backup Kyle Kempt during the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game at Texas. Purdy, whose play since being inserted as the starter gave Iowa State an outside chance of earning a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game, had a tough night in Austin. The freshman signal-caller was 10-of-23 with 130 yards and an interception, and he also took numerous hits throughout the night before being replaced by Kempt.

Beting Trends

Kansas State

The under is 4-0 in the Wildcats’ last four games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.

Iowa State

The over is 5-0 in the Cyclones’ last five games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous contest.

Prediction

The under is 4-1 in the Wildcats’ last five games overall, is 4-1 in their last five conference games and is 6-1 in their last seven games coming off a win. On the other side, the under is 4-1 in the Cyclones’ last five conference games, is 16-5 in their last 21 games and is 5-0 in their last five games played in the month of November. Even with a low total, I don’t expect these two teams to score enough points to push this game over the number.

Kentucky vs Louisville

Kentucky vs. Louisville

The Louisville Cardinals (2-9, 0-8 ACC) will host the No. 15 Kentucky Wildcats (8-3, 5-3 SEC) on Saturday for the 31st annual Governor’s Cup, with the winner of this year’s contest taking the lead in the all-time series.

Kentucky snapped a two-game losing streak last week in a Senior Day game that saw linebacker Josh Allen set Kentucky’s career and single-season sack records. Running back Benny Snell also got back on track, topping 100 yards on the ground for the first time in three games.

Louisville’s first game without Bobby Petrino manning the sidelines ended in familiar fashion—a blowout loss. The 42-point defeat extended UofL’s losing streak to eight games. The Cardinals are allowing 49.8 points per game while being outscored 398-162 during the skid.

The Governor’s Cup series is tied at 15-15, with Louisville winning six of the last seven matchups.

Kickoff at Cardinal Stadium is scheduled for 7 p.m

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – It’s a big week in the state of Tennessee, but there’s so much more on the line than bragging rights for the winner of this clash between the Volunteers and Commodores. The rivals will meet Saturday afternoon, with both schools desperate for a victory that would give them the magic number of six for bowl eligibility.

TV: 4 p.m. ET, SEC Network. LINE: Vanderbilt -3.5.

“I’m excited, excited for the opportunity,” fifth-year Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason told reporters. “You got two teams that are vying for something on the other side of victory. It’s win or go home. The reality is, right now, you’ve grinded through 11 weeks of the season, there’s good and bad. Now you have an opportunity to seize the moment.” Once the doormat of the SEC and an afterthought in their own state, the Commodores have seized the moment in this usually one-sided rivalry the last two seasons and they are now aiming for their first three-game winning streak — they have only won two in a row one other time — since 1926. That is especially significant in a state that bleeds orange far more than black and gold, usually resulting in Volunteers fans making up the majority at Vanderbilt Stadium. “Everybody thinks that we’re the little brother or little sister … but we’ve never felt that way,” Mason said. “With that being said, I think it’s going to be a good game based on the fact that these are two football teams that have something to play for. We are going to line up, tee it up and we are going to give Nashville — our city — an opportunity to see what we are made of.”

ABOUT TENNESSEE (5-6, 2-5 SEC)

In his first season as head coach, Jeremy Pruitt led his Volunteers to upset victories over Auburn and Kentucky but avoiding the SEC East cellar could largely depend on the status of redshirt sophomore quarterback Jarrett Guarantano, who has impressed with his 63.5 percent accuracy and just two picks in 217 pass attempts, but he is questionable after leaving last week’s 50-17 loss to Missouri with a concussion. Backup Kelly Chryst was underwhelming in relief, hitting just 7 of 19 passes for 173 yards with two interceptions, and the team may need to lean on the ground game with freshman running back Ty Chandler (542 yards, 5.0 per carry), who has totaled at least 80 yards in each of the last two games, challenging a Commodores’ run defense that has struggled at times but comes off a solid effort against Ole Miss (30 rushes, 121 yards). Still, the whole key may be the defense’s ability to shut down Commodores quarterback Kyle Shurmur, who has given the Vols fits the last two seasons, completing 41 of 65 passes for 699 yards and six touchdowns.

ABOUT VANDERBILT (5-6, 2-5)

Shurmur has decimated the Volunteers’ pass defense the last two years but they are hardly the only secondary he’s torched as he set the school touchdown record last week with his 60th touchdown pass — the game winner in a 36-29 OT win over Ole Miss — and he has completed 61.4 percent of his 334 passes for 2,477 yards, 20 touchdowns and six interceptions this season. But the Commodores have proven to be more than just Shurmur, showing balance in their last three games with averages of 220.7 rushing yards and 210.7 passing yards, with Ke’Shawn Vaughn powering the ground attack although he may be slowed by an ailing ankle. The success of the running game may ultimately be the difference — the Commodores are 0-5 when they fail to rush for 175 yards and 5-1 when they hit that mark, while the Volunteers are 0-5 when they allow 200 yards or more and 5-1 when they hold opponents to less.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Tennessee owns a 75-31-5 advantage in this series, although Vanderbilt has won four of the last six.

2. The Volunteers won 22 straight games over the Commodores from 1983 to 2004, including three straight shutouts from 2001-03.

3. Tennessee has earned trips to 52 bowl games in school history, including three straight from 2014-16.

PREDICTION: Vanderbilt 36, Tennessee 28

#24 Arkansas is off to a 2-0 start after a thrilling 41-38 Double OT victory over TCU last Saturday night. After two close games, the Razorbacks are looking for a little reprieve against Texas State team.

The Bobcats struggled defensively in their first game of the season against Ohio giving up 48 points. Austin Allen and his band of wide receivers should get into a rhythm early and put up a lot of yards through the air. Rawleigh Williams III had another solid outing against TCU (137 yards rushing). He should get that in the first half against Texas State giving the world an opportunity to see more of the hyped freshman, Devwah Whaley, in the second half.

Arkansas’ offense always makes them an exciting team to watch. I expect another fun, but not close, game on Saturday night.

Rutgers vs Michigan State

Rutgers vs Michigan State: live stream: How to watch Week 13 online

Saturday’s Michigan State vs Rutgers game closes out the 2018 regular season for both teams. Here’s how you can watch the game online.

It’s been a forgettable couple of weeks for Michigan State as the Spartans have gone from ranked No. 18 in the country before a big battle against No. 10 Ohio State to out of the rankings with two consecutive losses under their belts.

The Spartans are coming off arguably their worst loss of the season at Nebraska where they failed to record a touchdown for the second straight game. Coming in, the Cornhuskers had just three wins and were only playing for pride, but they were able to beat the Spartans once again in Lincoln to drop them to 6-5.

A once-promising season with a potential Rose Bowl berth has come down to a late start against Rutgers to close out the year.

Mark Dantonio has plenty of talent coming back next season, but senior day will be big for guys like Matt Sokol, Khari Willis and Andrew Dowell. This will also be a proper send-off for star receiver Felton Davis III who was injured against Michigan.

What’s Going To Happen

SMU has bowl eligibility right there for the taking, but it has to crank up the offense against the Tulsa defense that hasn’t been able to do much of anything right.

The Golden Hurricane couldn’t get by a Navy team that’s generating nothing defensively, and outside of the win over UConn, there hasn’t been a win over an FBS team.

The Mustangs have the offense and the passing game to put this away fast, with 275 yards or more through the air over the last five games, but the run defense has to hold up.

UConn ran wild in a crazy shootout a few weeks ago, and couldn’t stop the Memphis ground game last week in a tough loss that knocked SMU out of the American Athletic title race.

Against a Tulsa defense that can’t generate any sort of a pass rush, and an offense that can’t stop turning the ball over, the Mustangs will overcome several major deficiencies – especially on third downs – to get the sixth win thanks to a 450-yard offensive day.
