Let’s take a closer look at these two teams and we’ll start with the underdog Iowa State Cyclones.

Kansas State Wildcats

The Wildcats are 25-7 overall and 19-12-1 ATS.  Kansas State is already a tournament team after winning the Big 12 regular season championship as well as winning 25 games on the season in a power 5 conference, but can improve their seeding by making a deep run in the Big 12 tournament. Kansas State is 19-12-1 ATS overall, 16-8 ATS after a win, 15-10-1 ATS as a favorite and 14-4-1 ATS in conference games.

Barry Brown Jr leads the team in scoring and steals with 468 points and 63 steals. Kamau Stokes leads the team in assists with 102. Xavier Sneed leads the team in rebounds with 161. Makol Mawien leads the team in blocks with 19.

Kansas State gets the win to advance

Both of these teams should be NCAA tournament teams this season, but the Wildcats are playing better and have all season as they are the Big 12 regular season champions and are two wins away from becoming Big 12 tournament champions as well. The teams split the series this season with both teams winning on the road and the Cyclones winning the most recent game by a score of 64-78. I still look for the Wildcats to get the win and cover in the game on Friday against the Cyclones. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
