Against The Spread Pick
The Iowa State Cyclones and the West Virginia Mountaineers face off on Wednesday and in this game, the value lies with the home squad. This is a down Cyclones team and they have some work to do, to even make the tournament. Two games ago the Cyclones lost by 14 points to the Baylor Bears at home, and this game is going to be harder going on the road. In that game they only scored 53 points, and the Mountaineers defense is elite giving up only 59.1 points per game at home. The Mountaineers are 7-3 against the spread in their last ten games overall. Back the Mountaineers to get the job done.
Over Under Pick
This is a total I would stay away from, just because of the Mountaineers offense. They could score 70 in this game or they could score 85 and neither would be all that impressive. The one area to point for this total is with the trends. The over is 8-0-1 in the last nine games played between the two teams. Back the over to cash as a lean.
