Could Iowa State overlook K-State?
No. 17 Iowa State will host Kansas State as a sizable home favorite this evening but could have issues covering the spread.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cyclones are a 9.5-point favorite versus the Wildcats for today's 6:00PM ET tip-off while the total is up to 148.5 after it opened at 148.
Iowa State should win tonight but its having issues covering the spread as a favorite of between 6.5 to 12 points (0-3 ATS). And while Kansas State hasn't posted eye-popping numbers as an underdog this season, the Wildcats are 7-5 at the betting window as a dog and 5-3 ATS in lined road games this season.
The Cyclones could easily overlook a Wildcats team that is 1-10 against ranked opponents this year. In fact, our Advanced Matchup Report indicates that ISU should be a 7-point favorite instead of a nearly double-digit fave, so take the value and the points in K-State.
