According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Jayhawks are 9.5-point home favorites versus the Cyclones while the over/under is sitting at 159 points. Neither the side nor the total has moved in this matchup but you can compare lines for today's matchup at our NCAA Men's Basketball Odds page.

Iowa State has been an awful play for bettors of late, going 1-4 against the spread in its last five games overall and failing to cover in four of its last five road games. Kansas, meanwhile, is red-hot against the spread, covering in nine of its last 10 games and going 8-1 against the number in its last nine Big 12 matchups.

Over 60% of betting tickets are on Kansas to cover today vs. Iowa State

But those numbers are also one of the reasons why the line appears inflated today. The Cyclones are 4-1 against the spread and have won three of their last four games. Abdel Nader and Georges Niang combined for 36 points in a 58-50 win over Oklahoma State and ISU isn't going to concede anything, even after losing 10-straight at Kansas.

The Jayhawks should win but look for a rare non-cover for them today at home.
