Betting on the Kansas Jayhawks (odds)
Record: 13-7 Overall / 7-5 Conference
The Jayhawks are back in the win column after scoring a 78-66 win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys last Monday. Kansas also covered the spread as a 6.5-point home favorite. Dave McCormack led the Jayhawks with 23 points, while Marcus Garrett had 17 points. All Kansas starters scored in double figures, but the bench put up just two points. Kansas doesn’t really give its bench players lots of playing time, as the Jayhawks are just 298th in the nation in bench minutes. Kansas is averaging 73.3 points per game and is allowing 69.2 points per contest. Ochai Agbaji and company should be able to find success scoring against Iowa State’s defense that is 312th in the nation with 77.2 points allowed per game. Iowa State has yet to win a game in Big 12 play and its pathetic defense is one of the main reasons why.
The over is 3-1 in Kansas’ last four games overall.
Betting on the Iowa State Cyclones (odds)
Record: 2-12 Overall / 0-9 Conference
Iowa State just couldn’t get a break. In their ninth try to get a win in Big 12 play, the Cyclones found themselves on the losing end again, falling prey to the TCU Horned Frogs on Feb. 9, 79-76. Despite the loss, Iowa State has been delivering the goods for its spread bettors of late, as the Cyclones have covered in all of their last three games. Iowa State could check its outside shooting early against the Jayhawks. The Cyclones have been hot from deep of late, as they have shot 42.6 percent from behind the arc in their last three games. That’s skewed by an insane 16-of-31 shooting from long range in a 79-72 road loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater on Feb. 6, but the Cyclones also went 9-of-21 on 3-pointers in a 76-72 home loss to the West Virginia Mountaineers on Feb. 2.
Iowa State is 4-2 against the spread in its last six home games against Kansas.
Kansas wins, 77-67.
