The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I am taking the points with Oklahoma State in this contest. Oklahoma State has won two out of their last three games which included a win over Texas, and their defense should keep them in this game. The Cowboys are holding opponents to 40.5% shooting on the season, and they limited Iowa State to only 69 points earlier this month.

Furthermore, Iowa State has lost two out of their last three games, and they have not been nearly as productive in conference play, averaging only 68.2 points in their last five games overall.

Prediction: Oklahoma State Cowboys

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I am opting with the under in this matchup. These two teams played to a low-scoring 69-63 decision on January 2nd, and I expect a similar result in this contest. OK State is allowing an average of only 69 points on the season, and they are a defensive minded team, plus the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.

In addition, Iowa State has consistently contained their opposition, conceding 64 or fewer points in four out of their last five games, and the under is 4-1 in their last five games overall.

Prediction: Under

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

I am confident Oklahoma State can neutralize the Cyclones scoring. Iowa State has only averaged 62.5 points in their last two games, and as mentioned they only managed 69 points against the Cowboys earlier this month. OK State also defends the three well, and they held Iowa State to 33% shooting in the meeting on January 2nd.

Prediction: Iowa State Team Total: Under

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

I am going with the over on the halftime total. Iowa State stands 29th in the country with an average of 38.5 points in the first half. Oklahoma State is also very productive in the opening half where they are averaging 37.7 points in their last three games.

Prediction: Over
