Kansas Jayhawks (19–6, 12–11–1 ATS) at Iowa State Cyclones (13-11, 8-12-2 ATS)

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018, Hilton Coliseum

On Tuesday, the Big-12 will have a few good games on their schedule. Our game, Kansas versus Iowa State, is the best game of the day and one you won’t want to miss. Tip-off is set for 7 P.M ET and will be aired nationally on ESPN2.

This is the second meeting of the year between them, with KU winning 83–78 in Game One.

Kansas Itching To Get Back On Track

The Jayhawks have had a very good performance this year through 25 games. They started the year with an 11–2 non-conference record and now have gone 8–4 in conference play. Most recently, though, the program has lost two of their last three which includes a tough, 16-point loss on the road against Baylor in their last game.

With all that said, the Jayhawks have a lot going for them. So far, they rank third among Big-12 teams in points per game, highlighted by Devonte’ Graham — their leading in scoring (17.7 PPG) and assists (7.3 APG). 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.

Unfortunately, they have two players on Tuesday’s injury report that are ruled out. Nick Weiler-Babb and Hans Brase, two key rotation players, have both gone down with knee injuries this month.

Trends:

KAN:

  • 9–3 ATS in their last 12 road games.

ISU:

  • 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.
