Kansas vs. Iowa State odds: College basketball picks from data scientist who's undefeated on Cyclones games

The Kansas Jayhawks visit the Iowa State Cyclones on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET in a nationally televised game. The Jayhawks are favored by 6.5 points, unchanged from the opening line. The over-under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 151, also unchanged from the open.

In this conference battle that could have major implications on both Big 12 and NCAA Tournament seeding, you need to see what SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh has to say.

Oh, who specializes in sports data and simulations, has been crushing his recent college basketball picks. He's at his best when analyzing the Cyclones, as evidenced by his blistering 7-0 run when he makes any kind of pick on Iowa State. Anybody following him is way, way up.

Part of his success: He co-founded AccuScore and specializes in unbiased sports simulations, projections and statistical analysis.

Now, he has analyzed Kansas vs. Iowa State on Tuesday from every possible angle and locked in his pick. We can tell you he's leaning to the under in this matchup, and he has a strong point-spread pick he's sharing only at SportsLine.

Oh has taken into account that Kansas is coming into this matchup fresh off a stinging loss against Baylor over the weekend, while Iowa State is riding high following a big-time upset over Oklahoma.

Those outcomes broke recent trends for both teams. Kansas had won three of four, while Iowa State was on a major slide with just one win in its previous five games.

But just because Iowa State had the better performance over the weekend doesn't mean the Cyclones will play well at home against the Jayhawks.

There are some large statistical gaps between these teams in major categories that favor the Jayhawks. Kansas averages nearly nine more points than Iowa State and the Jayhawks are also the better defensive squad, giving up 3.5 fewer points.

And with March just around the corner, Kansas has a lot more to play for. The Jayhawks are still in contention to win the Big 12 regular-season crown and are in play for a high seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Oh has evaluated all of these circumstances and quickly locked in a confident pick based on a major statistical trend only a data scientist would see. You can find out which side he's all over only at SportsLine.
