Why Kansas State can cover
Kansas State has proven it can win games by double digits, blowing out South Dakota and Missouri in its first two games.

Their defense has been fantastic, allowing just 6.0 points per game.
Senior quarterback Adrian Martinez has not had to do much, throwing just 35 total passes in the two wins.

Kansas State has covered the spread in four of its last five home games, while Tulane is on a seven-game road losing streak.
Why Tulane can cover
Tulane has taken care of business in its first two games of the season, beating UMass by 32 points and Alcorn State by 52 points. The Green Wave were able to play both of those games at home, so they are rested heading into this matchup.

Senior wide receiver Shae Wyatt leads the team with six receptions for 150 yards and a touchdown. Kansas State has been one dimensional offensively, so the Wildcats will have to showcase a new dimension to cover this spread. Tulane has covered the spread in six of its last seven games, while Kansas State has failed to cover in six straight games against AAC opponents.
