Week 6 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Big 12 showdown between the No. 20 Kansas State Wildcats and the Iowa State Cyclones. Kanas State's winning ways continued last week, bringing the Wildcats up to 4-1 following their 37-28 win over Texas Tech.
Meanwhile, the Cyclones have now suffered back-to-back losses, the most recent of which was a 14-11 defeat at the hands of Kansas. Iowa State just couldn't get any offense going in the loss, recording only a field goal in the second half.

Kansas State vs Iowa State Prediction & Pick
Kansas State and Iowa State have collided 105 times since 1917, resulting in 52 victories for the Cyclones. While there was a time that Iowa State lost 10 straight comes to its rival, things have changed recently as Matt Campbell's squad has won three of the last four games against the Wildcats.
That said, I don't expect that trend to continue. First of all, Kansas State is 10-1 against Iowa State when the former is the only ranked team. Secondly, the Wildcats are a perfect 2-0 against the Big 12 so far, whereas the Cyclones are winless in two tries this fall.
Even with Iowa State's world-class defense, the Cyclones' offense hasn't been consistent this year, scoring 11 or fewer points twice already. While the Wildcats should be challenged when it comes to moving down the field, Kansas State's offense has been reliable and will likely get the job done in the end.
Final Score Prediction: Kansas State: 23 | Iowa State: 17

If you're expecting a lot of points here, you might be disappointed. Even though I project a Kansas State victory, Iowa State's defense (especially at home) is good enough to prevent things from turning into a shootout. A 40.5-point total may not seem like a lot, but I'm more comfortable backing the under here.
Bet: Under 40.5 Points (-115)
