Kansas State 2012 College Football Predictions and 2013 BCS Odds

Kansas State was a huge surprise last season, finishing 10-3 overall and 7-2 in conference play to take second place in the Big 12. Despite the Wildcats strong 2011 performance, the odds makers are not sold on the team putting together another 10 plus win season. In fact, the latest 2012 College Football Predictions at 5Dimes.eu would suggest Kansas State has little to no chance of matching last year’s unexpected production. The Wildcats are drawing -160 odds ($160 to win $100) to win fewer than 7.5 games (Over 7.5 wins is lined at +120 odds) and they are a +2200 play to win the 10 team Big 12 Conference. 2013 BCS Odds at the offshore book maker have K-State listed at +16000 odds to win the national championship.

Kansas State would appear to have a respect issue on its hands, but those familiar with the program are probably used to being dismissed. The latest odds are just another feather in the school’s Rodney Dangerfield cap as most teams returning 14 starters, including its two best players (Collin Klein, Arthur Brown), from a unit that won 10 games are rarely expected to take a big step back.

Those who doubt the Wildcats seem to focus on three key areas, which are: health, close wins, and schedule. There are those who believe quarterback Collin Klein, who is the heart and soul of the team, will have difficulty staying healthy given the number of hits he takes. Some believe last year’s win total was a bit of fool’s gold with Kansas State taking three key games (Baylor, Texas A&M, and Texas) by a total of eight points. And finally, the 2012 schedule is a grinder with the Wildcats facing Oklahoma, West Virginia, and TCU on the road while welcoming Oklahoma State and Texas to Manhattan.

Granted, these things could be cause for concern, but if Head Coach Bill Synder has proven anything during his tenure at Kansas State it is this: he is a master at outperforming expectations.
