Prediction

Iowa State 45, Kansas 30

Moneyline (ML)

There is currently no moneyline available at the time of publishing.

Against the Spread (ATS)

KANSAS (+24.5, -110) has some decent skill position players like RB Pooka Williams Jr. and WR Andrew Parchment, so the Jayhawks are more than capable of hanging in a shootout. Make no mistake, Iowa State (-24.5, -110) is the better team here, but the Jayhawks have the tools to get involved in a shootout. Just ask the Texas Longhorns.

Over/Under (O/U)

The OVER (58.5, -106) is a tremendous play, as Iowa State’s pass attack is outstanding and Kansas has a very leaky defense. The best thing for over bettors will be Iowa State jumping out to a big lead and Kansas passing its way back into the game. It is surprising this line wasn’t in the sixties. Get in before it rises.
