#13 Kansas Jayhawks (19-6; 12-11-1 ATS; 10-14 O/U) vs. Iowa State Cyclones (13-11; 8-13-1 ATS; 13-9 O/U)

The Kansas Jayhawks will head on the road to take on the Iowa State Cyclones in a Big 12 clash Tuesday evening from the James H. Hilton Coliseum. The Jayhawks were handled 80-64 by Baylor on Saturday, and the Cyclones are coming off an 88-80 home win against Oklahoma. Kansas defeated Iowa State by an 83-78 score earlier this season.

Jayhawks Crushed by Baylor

The Kansas Jayhawks were out of synch offensively in their rough 80-64 road loss to Baylor on Saturday to bring their Big 12 record to 8-4. The Jayhawks shot a poor 39.7% from the field, while Baylor was able to post a 56.6% shooting performance. Jayhawks’ top scorer Devonte’ Graham played well in the loss, recording 23 points on 8 for 17 shooting. The senior guard has now scored a combined 47 points in his last two games and is now up to 17.7 points on 41% shooting. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk struggled in the loss to Baylor, going 1 for 8 from the field for two points. The senior guard is in a rut, scoring a total of three points in his last two games, however overall he is having a strong season, standing second in team scoring with 15.8 points, and he features a stellar 44.8% efficiency from beyond the arc.

The Jayhawks have now dropped two out of their last three games which included a home loss to Oklahoma State. Their defensive play has looked vulnerable at times, and they are now 4-2 in their six conference road games. Kansas dropped from 10th to 13th in the country in this week’s Top 25 rankings. They are currently averaging 81.7 points per game, good for 34th in the country. They are allowing an average of 70.5 points, positioning them 133rd overall.

Wigginton Shines in Cyclones Upset Win vs. Oklahoma

The Iowa State Cyclones played outstanding defense in their 88-80 upset home win against #17 Oklahoma on Saturday to bring their Big 12 record to 3-8. The Cyclones converted on 46% of their field goals, and they were able to hold Oklahoma to a 42.8% clip from the field. Cyclones’ top scorer Lindell Wigginton led the way offensively with a 26-point effort on 8 for 22 shooting. The freshman guard has scored over 20 points in two of his last four games, and he is posting an average of 16.3 points on 40.9% shooting. Donovan Jackson played a key role in Saturday’s win with 19 points and four assists. The senior guard is shooting a dazzling 93% from the free-throw line and places second in team scoring with 15.5 points on 40.3% shooting.

The Cyclones own a 2-4 record in their last six games and they have notched a few upsets this season, posting a 3-4 record against ranked teams. They have recorded a win against Texas Tech and West Virginia this season, and two of their conference losses have come in overtime. Iowa State owns a 4-3 home record in Big 12 play, and are positioned at 91st in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Iowa State is scoring an average of 73.6 points per game, placing them 188th overall. They are conceding an average of 74 points, placing them 227th overall.

Trends:

The Kansas Jayhawks are:

  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against Iowa State.
  • 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games.
  • 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games.

The Iowa State Cyclones are:

  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog.

I am taking the points with Iowa State in this matchup. Iowa State has tallied three upset wins against ranked teams in three out of their last four home games. They defeated Texas Tech and West Virginia by double-digits, and just recorded an 88-80 win against Oklahoma. The Cyclones have scored 93 and 88 points respectively in their last two home games, and they are up against a Kansas team that just had Baylor shoot 56% against them in their latest action. Furthermore, Kansas is also only averaging 71 points in their last four road games, and they have not had success ATS against Iowa State.

Pick: Iowa State

Kansas has not been scoring as many points as of late, and the Cyclones are not a strong offensive minded club. The Jayhawks has scored 71 or fewer points in three out of their last four games, and the under is 4-1 in their last five games following an ATS loss. While I do expect some offensive success from the Cyclones, they are not a high-scoring team, and they are up against a solid defense, plus the under is 4-1 in the Jayhawks last eight conference games.

Pick: Under
