Kansas State vs Iowa State Betting Prediction

Kansas State was able to pick up a huge win against Texas on Wednesday to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive, but they will need to upset Iowa State for the second time in less than a week to stay alive. The Wildcats just beat Iowa State by a score of 65-58 on March 9th and they have won four of their last six games. Iowa State finished second in the Big 12 standings and they have won eight of their last ten games. Iowa State did win the first meeting between these teams by a score of 78-67. Kansas State is showing a lot of fight, but I think asking them to hang with Iowa State for the second time in a week is a bit much. I like Iowa State to win with ease here.
