Kansas Itching To Get Back On Track

On the flip side, they’ve struggled a bit on defense, having allowed 80-plus points in all four conference losses.
Luckily, the Jayhawks have zero players on Tuesday’s injury report.
ISU Has Some Rough Injury Issues
The Iowa State Cyclones have had a wacky performance this year through 24 games. They started the year with a 9–2 non-conference record, including a nine-game winning streak, but have since struggled in conference play (4–8). Most recently, though, they’ve been pulled themselves up a bit with a huge 88–80 win against №17 Oklahoma.
With all that said, the Cyclones have struggled on offense for most of conference action. They currently are scoring just 73.6 points per game and shooting 43.1 percent from the field, place them at №8 and №9 in the Big-12, respectively.
- 9–3 ATS in their last 12 road games.
- 2–6 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games.
Although there are a bunch of games to choose from on Tuesday’s schedule, you can’t forget about Kansas versus Iowa State. The Jayhawks are ranked nationally (№13) and despite their record, the Cyclones are coming off a huge win in their last game. It will air on ESPN2 at 7 P.M ET.
Betting-wise, the best way to go is with the Jayhawks. They will benefit from having the healthier team, as well as the fact that they’re laying a small number and are hungry after two losses in their last three games.
