Iowa State vs Kansas State Betting Prediction

Iowa State comes into this matchup with a 13-4 conference record and they are second in the Big 12 standings, just one game behind Houston. The Cyclones have won four games in a row and their defense has been elite. Iowa State has allowed 63 points or fewer in four straight games and they are only allowing 62 points against per game this season. Kansas State has lost two games in a row and they are 7-10 in conference play, but they will be at home here. Kansas State plays their best basketball at home, but they are only shooting 43.6% from the field. I think Iowa State is going to really clamp down on Kansas State in this game and I think we will see a lower scoring game. Take the under here.
