The Texas Longhorns are set to take on the Kansas State Wildcats in Manhattan, Kansas, this weekend and they are favored by 2.5 points in that game despite being on the road.
Bettors don’t seem to mind though, as the majority of money coming in on the game is going in Texas’ direction. According to BetOnline, the Longhorns are the third-most wagered favorite of the weekend, receiving 65% of the bets coming in on the spread, as it seems folks are confident that we will see a different Texas team than we saw in Stillwater two weekends ago.
Quinn Ewers will need to be much-improved if that is to pass, as the K-State defense is much better than the one that he saw against Oklahoma State, and the Wildcats are coming off a huge win over the Pokes.
North Carolina is the second-most wagered favorite of the weekend, receiving 68% of the bets to cover their seven-point spread against Virginia. Clemson is the most-wagered favorite of the week, bringing in 75% of the money to cover a 3.5-point spread against Notre Dame.
There is another interesting trend from the Big 12 as well, but this one is taking place north of the Red River. Baylor and Oklahoma are set to clash in Norman and bettors expect a high-scoring affair. 78% of the money coming in on the over/under are for the over, which is set at 61.5 points.
