Score: 108 - 96
Point Spread: +1/-110 Iowa State
The Cyclones are a solid 15-0 straight up on their home court. They are also 7-3 ATS their last 10 when playing at Hilton and have a history of playing the Jayhawks in some tough games. Iowa State is 8-2 ATS versus teams allowing 64 points per game or less 15+ games this season.
The Jayhawks have also struggled on the road against good three point shooting teams. They are 0-7 ATS in road games vs. teams making 8 or more three point shots per game over the last three seasons. The Cyclones average 10 of 26 (38.3%) from beyond the three point line on their home court.
We already know this Kansas team has struggled on offense in tough conference games. They had a three game losing streak to start the month and their head coach announced this was the worst Kansas basketball team he has seen in years. The inconsistent offense for Kansas could be big trouble tonight since the Cyclones average 83.5 points per game on their home court.
This is also a revenge game for the Cyclones. Iowa State had a chance to beat Kansas in Lawrence until a last second three put the game into overtime and the Cyclones could not hold on. A change in venue should also give us a change in outcome with the Cyclones picking up a big win tonight.
