Red-Hot Kansas Has Been Fade Material Recently

Kansas have been on a mission since losing its season opener, as the Jayhawks have won their past 16 games. However, this dominance has come at the downfall of bettors, as Kansas has gone just 5-9 ATS in that span (a couple of games did not have a listed spread) with an average closing spread of -15. The Jayhawks will try to cover for just the second time in their past seven when they visit the Iowa State Cyclones on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • Kansas is 20-5 SU in its last 25 games against Iowa State.
  • Iowa State is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games as home underdogs.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Kansas's last 9 games on the road.

Frank Mason has firmly cemented himself in the national player of the year conversation, as the senior is averaging a conference-high 20.5 points while shooting 52.1 percent from the floor and 53.3 percent from deep. Mason has scored 20-plus points in 10 games this season, including four of five Big 12 games so far.

Iowa State’s deep squad struggled in its last outing against TCU, with the duo of Monte Morris and Deonte Burton combining for 14 points while shooting 5-for-24. The past two outings have seen the Cyclones struggle defensively, something we are not used to, as they have surrendered a combined 170 points against Oklahoma State and TCU. Morris has been one of the most versatile players in the country with the senior averaging 15.5 points, 5.8 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game.
