The under is 10-4 in Cyclones last 14 home games. The Wildcats are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Iowa State and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
I’m not ready to give up on the Iowa State Cyclones just yet, as they usually show up at home and their defense is still arguably the best in the conference. However, Iowa State still has issues offensively and the Kansas State Wildcats have far and away been the more impressive team. Not only did Kansas State beat Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago, but it has the fourth best rushing attack in the country, and that’s how you win on the road. We’re not being asked to lay anything crazy. Give me Kansas State and the small chalk.
