Iowa State vs Kansas State Prediction & Pick

This is must-see television for Big 12 fans and college basketball fans alike. Playing at James H. Hilton Coliseum gives Iowa State one of the best home-field advantages in the country as 13,000 rowdy fans give it all they got. However, this Kansas State team has shown it does not get fazed on the road.

The Wildcats have already taken down both Baylor and Texas in crucial Big 12 road wins. Head coach Jerome Tang's team shoots 36.9% from three-point range (No. 2 in Big 12) in away games and forces 15.6 turnovers per game (No. 33 in NCAA) on the season. That's a flat-out dangerous combination.

Kansas State is also 4-1 straight up in its last five games against Iowa State, so give me the Wildcats.

Final Score Prediction: Iowa State: 67 | Kansas State: 69

Iowa State vs Kansas State Best Bet

Bettors that have continually trusted Kansas State have been cashing one bet after another this year. The Wildcats are 14-5 against the spread (ATS) overall and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games. Keep in mind they are also 4-1 ATS in their last five road games against Iowa State. Those are strong trends.

Iowa State is on an undeniably powerful run right now as well, but it's worth noting the Cyclones have not beaten the Wildcats by at least 6 points since February of 2020. Nowell and Keyontae Johnson are the best players on this court tonight, which makes siding with Kansas State the best option.

Bet: Kansas State Wildcats +5.5 (-118)
