Kansas? quest for a Big 12 victory continues this evening as the Jayhawks play host to conference rival Iowa State (7:00pm ET start time). The latest Saturday College Football Iowa State at Kansas Odds are not digging the ?Hawks chances, though, as the Cyclones are presently listed as a -5 against the spread road favorite. The Over/Under in this Big 12 skirmish is set at 48 points.
Despite its ugly 1-9 record, most would contend Kansas is a better team under the direction of Charlie Weis. The Jayhawks have not lacked for effort all season, and they have been competitive in a number of games, especially at home.
For those reasons, many feel Kansas has an excellent opportunity to secure its first conference win of the season this afternoon. Iowa State, as evidence by its 5-5 record and league wins over TCU and Baylor, is the better team; however, the Cyclones are slumping down the stretch and their last two road outings were hardly impressive.
Paul Rhoads? squad has dropped four of its last five games and it was outscored 65-17 in its two most recent road trips (Oklahoma State, Texas).
Kansas has lost nine straight since opening the season with a 31-17 win over FCS school South Dakota State, but it has been a handful for almost every team it hosted. The Jayhawks four home loss came by a combined 25 points, despite the team facing spreads of 18, 27, and 19.5 points in three of those games.
Kansas has also won five of its last seven meetings with the Cyclones and it covered the spread in five of those games as well, including the last two, which it played in as a double digit underdog.
Free Pick: Take Kansas +5.
