Against The Spread Pick

Two sub-par Big-12 teams will be trying to gain some sort of momentum as we near the end of the regular season. Neither team are being considered for the NCAA tournament and rightly so as they have 9 conference wins combined. Do note that the Cyclones are 0-9 on the road this season and just 3-9 ATS. The Cowboys are only 5-9 ATS at home and are laying about 7 points at home. Iowa State beat the Cowboys in the first meeting 89-82, and I believe the Cyclones can keep this one close enough to cover. This game will not be one I will be betting, but it would still be a lean to the Cyclones.

Over Under Pick

Given these two defenses, the over is the only place I can look. The Cyclones allow about 72 points per game, but this number increases to 78 points per road game. The Cowboys play better defense, but the last time they played this Iowa State squad, they allowed 89 points. The over is 9-3-1 in Oklahoma State’s last 13 overall and 8-3-1 in their last 12 against the Big 12. Iowa State have played to the over in 9 of their 12 away games, and that is where I lean in this game. Much like the side, this is is not a total I will be betting, but expect points to be scored in bunches.
