10* Kansas State (9:30 ET): Arkansas is yet another team that my own personal power ratings do not believe should be in the Top 25. The Razorbacks are 3-0, so give them credit for that, but they are 1-2 ATS with the lone cover coming last time out in a 93-80 win over Northern Iowa. Even that game, which took place last Wednesday, was close as the teams exchanged the lead 18 times and the Hogs were only up one (79-78) with under three minutes remaining. I think it’s a good idea to take the points here.

A major area of concern right now for Arkansas is that they are one of the worst teams in the country at defending the three-point line. They let Northern Iowa sink 17 of 37 attempts, so the first three opponents are hitting 43.4% from behind the arc. Kansas State happens to be shooting a very similar percentage from three-point range as the Wildcats are 2-0, having beaten Florida A&M and Nebraska-Omaha. Despite winning those games by a combined 25 points, KSU is 0-2 ATS. But here, we obviously don’t need to worry about laying points.

Though this is technically a neutral site game in Kansas City, part of the Hall of Fame Classic, I think there’s a bit of an edge towards Kansas State in terms of the venue. There is also a lot of turnover on the Arkansas roster compared to last season. I don’t think they can count on Miami FL transfer Chris Lykes scoring 26 points (a career-high) again, like he did vs. Northern Iowa. Kansas State is 5-2 ATS its last seven games as a neutral site underdog. 10* Kansas State
