Important to remember that the above consensus numbers are an early snapshot of public action. The Professional Handicappers League has a few professional consensus services for those looking for a consensus of expert sports picks. Personally, we like to know where the money goes early, especially looking for drastic early money on one side, which is often "smart money", whereas heavy action closer to game time is usually "square money".


The Kansas State Wildcats is a team we have a pretty strong read on and have had a lot of success betting or against. We have placed 10 documented premium wagers on Wildcats games in the last decade, winning 9, next to just 1 for a winning rate of 90.00% and profits of $7940.00. We do not have a premium selection in this game today, but we do have a strong opinion.

Some of the factors we look at are the total points being scored by both teams, which is 143.1. Together, the teams average 130.2 points allowed, which gives us expected total points of 136.65, which can be compared against the over/under offered by oddsmakers for those inclined to bet on totals.

To determine the game-winner and to consider the spread in a game we can look at point differential as well, but it is wise to weigh the power rating differential even more. In this game, which is considered "neutral", the power rating on the Kansas State Wildcats is 83.0 while the Loyola Chicago Ramblers bring a rating of 80.0, meaning, a reasonable line on this game for Kansas State is -3.
