This is a 1* Free play on the Kansas State Wildcats
(NCAAB) Oklahoma vs. Kansas State, 02/14/2015 3:00 PM, Score: 56 - 59
Point Spread: 5.50 | -118.00 Kansas State (Home)
Result: Win
The #17 ranked Sooners will be a significant favorite on the road tonight at Manhattan Kansas. The Wildcats have lost five straight, but they were competitive in most of those games, losing by just four points to West Virginia and Texas in their last two. I think we get great value backing the home team here getting points against a conference rival.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Home Cookin' - The Wildcats boast a 9-4 overall home record, and have covered the spread in seven of their last nine home games versus Oklahoma. The Sooners are just 4-4 SU in their eight road games this season, and yet they are asked to cover a significant number here against a K-State team that already beat them in Norman earlier in the year.

2. Previous History - Since 2011, the Wildcats have won three of four home meetings versus the Sooners, with the only loss coming by a score of 63-60 in January of 2012.

3. X-Factor - The Wildcats leading scorer Marcus Foster has missed the last three games while serving a suspension. He's expected to return to action tonight, and it was Foster who hit the game winner in the upset win over the Sooners in January.
