    Crew’s Pick To Cover The Spread

    KSU looked pretty good in their last three going 1-2 straight up and 2-1 ATS with the outcome of both losses coming in the final minute of the games. They’ll face a Longhorns team that were completely outmatched in Houston losing by 21 points. Texas certainly shouldn’t lack motivation needing the win with some tough road games and a big win tonight may keep them from dropping seeds. Kansas State has played a lot of close games recently, so mentally that’s tough to play at that level game in and game out, especially on the road. Take the Texas Longhorns -8.5
