Kansas State Texas A&M Betting – Renewed Wildcats Face A Measuring-Stick Moment

The Kansas State Wildcats have their main starting lineup back after the disruptions caused by NCAA suspensions. We’ll see how good they are when they go on the road this Saturday.

Why To Bet On Kansas State

Collections of Super Bowl betting gurus know that you have to trust prime-time players to make prime-time plays in big games. The same is true in college basketball. Kansas State has struggled massively without big man Curtis Kelly. The active and powerful forward gives the Wildcats a desperately-needed ruggedness and toughness near the basket. Kelly makes KSU a quality rebounding team and a force to be reckoned with in a cluttered and competitive Big 12 Conference. Unfortunately for the Wildcats and coach Frank Martin, Kelly missed six games recently due to accepting improper benefits according to NCAA rules. Kelly took free clothing as a gift, thereby committing a violation that has cost this team dearly.

Kansas State lost at Oklahoma State and then fell at home to Colorado in Kelly’s absence, but as soon as big No. 24 returned to the lineup, KSU drilled Texas Tech by more than 30 points this past Saturday. The Wildcats looked like a top team once again, and now they can get to work against a Texas A&M squad that will find it hard to match Kelly’s aggressiveness near the basket. The fact that Kelly missed six games in a row means that he’s going to be very fresh and rested. An active and healthy Kelly – spurred on by a bit of anger as well – will be a force of nature, a beast that A&M might not be able to handle.

Why To Bet On Texas A&M

The sports betting world is very much aware of Curtis Kelly’s return, but it also knows that this change to Kansas State’s roster will still involve some transition time. Texas A&M is a deep and balanced team without one superstar. The Aggies received contributions from several sources in a stirring 91-89 overtime win over a very good Missouri squad this past Saturday. Coach Mark Turgeon’s Aggies are a team that plays fluid, integrated half-court basketball. Kansas State might have more raw power and athleticism than Texas A&M, but the Aggies have more cohesiveness and flow at the moment. KSU will surely find a few games over the next two weeks in which Kelly’s return could actually disrupt the way the Wildcats play. Kelly’s presence is a net-plus, but the larger point of Kelly’s return is that the mixture is being reconstituted for the Wildcats. A&M is more unified and on the same page in terms of executing at both ends of the court. This is something that should definitely come into play in College Station, Texas. Playing this game at home should matter for the Aggies (and the Wildcats as well).

How The Game Will Play Out

Kansas State will show great energy and passion with Kelly back in the lineup, but one should expect A&M to execute better and play with more precision in its half-court sets. This will be a close game, but when either team needs a basket, the Aggies should be trusted to work for better shots and deliver production in the clutch. Take Texas A&M in this one.
