Iowa State vs Kansas State Expert Analysis and Prediction
Maybe it’s me, but I’m completely stunned that K-State isn’t favored at home against an Iowa State team that has an identical 7-4 record coming into this matchup. I know the Cyclones have gone 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings, but Iowa State is also an uninspiring 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while Kansas State has gone a blistering 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win and an equally impressive 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games. Again…I’m shocked Iowa State is even favored in this week 14 Big 12 battle, but that just makes Kansas State that much more attractive as a home dog. I’m going with the Wildcats to hold it down at home.
