NCAA football betting respect is also returning to the Kansas State Wildcats as they are also coming back into national and post season prominence with the NCAA football odds.
Yankee Stadium at the Bronx, NY will host its second college football game of the season with the New Era Pinstripe Bowl between the Syracuse Orange and Kansas State Wildcats.
ESPN will televise the matchup on Thursday, December 30 with a kickoff time of 3:20 PM ET. New Era Pinstripe Bowl odds at Sports Gambling opened with Kansas State as a 3 point favorite.
The Syracuse Orange have a NCAA football gambling record of 7-5 both straight up and against the spread. The Orange finished in 4th place in the Big East Conference behind West Virginia, Connecticut, and Pitt. Syracuse went under the total in 8 of their 12 games.
Third year coach Doug Marrone has made outstanding progress after inheriting a mess from Greg Robinson. The Orange were sparked by a defense that ranked 5th in the nation overall which compensated for an offense that continues to struggle and rank 106th nationally.
Syracuse is somewhat limping into this bowl as they lost their final two games of the season at home to UConn and Boston College respectively.
The Kansas State Wildcats are back in a bowl in Bill Snyder’s second year of his second tour of duty as head coach as they finished with a record of 7-5 straight up and 6-6 with the NCAA football odds. K- State went over the total in 9 of their 12 games and finished 3rd in the Big 12 North Division behind Nebraska and Missouri.
The Wildcats lost 4 of their final 6 games and needed a season finale 49-41 win at North Texas to clinch a winning season. Kansas State ranked an abysmal 104th overall for defense while the offense ranked a solid 25th in the nation for scoring. Running back Daniel Thomas is one of the best and had 1495 yards on the ground with 16 touchdowns.
