College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread: Iowa State vs. Kansas

Will No. 12 Kansas get back on track and cruise to a big win at home when the Jayhawks host Iowa State tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Kansas is favored at home in this game, as the Jayhawks are getting odds of -15.5 points against Iowa State. The over/under total for the game is listed at 155.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kansas and will air live on ESPN2.

Kansas is coming off a narrow 88-84 win at TCU this past weekend. The Jayhawks’ last home game saw them lose to Texas Tech, 85-73. Kansas is 12-3 overall, 2-1 in the Big 12 and 9-5 against the spread. Kansas has managed to cover in four of its last five games. The Jayhawks are averaging 86.9 points per game this season while allowing 69.5 per game. Devonte’ Graham is leading Kansas with 18.6 points and 7.4 assists per game while Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk is adding 16.5 points per game.

Iowa State has lost three straight coming into tonight’s game, including two straight in OT. The Cyclones are now 9-5 on the season, 0-3 in the Big 12 and 3-8-1 against the spread.

Bet on Iowa State vs. Kansas

Iowa State has actually won three of the last five meetings in this series and the Cyclones are 6-2 against the spread in the last eight encounters. Kansas hasn’t been able to really cruise to a lot of big wins as of late. While they are playing a number of road games over recent weeks, the Jayhawks still are a streaky team. They certainly have the capability of winning big tonight, but they have shown they could lay an egg and play down to Iowa State’s level. The public betting is behind Iowa State tonight and I will take the points as well.
