Kansas Giving Bettors Headaches

Despite being one of the best teams in the country, the Kansas Jayhawks have been pretty porous for bettors lately. Kansas is just 1-5 ATS in their past six games, including dropping their past four for bettors. The Jayhawks will be taking on the Iowa State Cyclones Monday, a team they have only covered against once in their past four meetings.

Shark Bites
  • Kansas is 19-4 SU in their last 23 games against Iowa State.
  • Iowa State is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games in January.
  • Iowa State has allowed just 66.7 points per game over their past three games.

Kansas has struggled on the road as they have dropped their past two games away from Allen Fieldhouse by a combined 30 points. These two teams last met in the Big 12 Championship last season and the Jayhawks offense stalled with three of their starters failing to score double-digit points including Perry Ellis.

Georges Naing is second in the Big 12 in points per game with the senior knocking down 19.3 points per game on 52.8 percent shooting. The Cyclones enter the game on a three-game winning streak that included a victory over the No.1 ranked Oklahoma Sooners.
