How To Bet the Iowa State vs Kansas Lines
Every team in NCAA basketball dreams of making it to the #1 spot in the national rankings during the regular season, but reaching that pinnacle has turned into a nightmare for just about every team that has landed there this season. It has certainly been a strange kind of season, as it appears that no-one wants the top spot, especially since getting there usually resulted in losing the very next game to a lesser opponent. The Kansas Jayhawks have bucked that trend, and enter the final game of the regular season looking as though they are not going to relinquish that number 1 ranking. They have been nothing short of brilliant for a while now, but will have one more tough test before they head into March Madness. They will host the Iowa State Cyclones, and know that a win will leave them at #1 heading into the Tournament. If you believe the Jayhawks can pull off one more win, why not put your money where your mouth is in our own College basketball betting page.

Why bet on Iowa State Cyclones
Iowa State (21-9, 10-7) have performed admirably in what has been an incredibly tough Big-12 Conference this season. They have had some signature wins in conference play this season, but perhaps none bigger than their 85-72 win over the Jayhawks in their last meeting. That win came on home court, and it’s fair to say that the Cyclones have been much better in their own building than on the road. They are coming into this one having lost their last 4 games away from home, which is not a trend you want to bring with you when facing the best team in the nation. The last time the Cyclones went on the road to face the #1 team was when they went against Oklahoma in mid-January. It was Iowa State who got the win there, so this is not a foregone conclusion by any means. The Cyclones are averaging 82.2 PPG, and are giving up 74.5 PPG.
Why bet on Kansas Jayhawks
Rather than sulking after their loss to the Iowa State Cyclones earlier this season, the Kansas Jayhawks (26-4, 14-3) used it as a wake-up call. Since that defeat, Kansas have reeled off 10 straight wins, and have locked up the Big-12 regular season championship. They now look very much like the team to beat heading into March Madness, as they are simply sweeping aside anyone who gets in their way. This is a team that has not lost a game at home all season long, and it’s hard to imagine them losing one now, especially with their #1 ranking on the line. Kansas are averaging 81.7 PPG, and are giving up 67.5 PPG.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
You can bet that Allen Fieldhouse is going to be rocking this coming Saturday, and you can also bet that the Jayhawks are going to be a fired up bunch. They have the chance to make a real statement to end the regular season, and I think they will take it.
