Iowa State Cyclones vs. Oregon State Beavers

Where: Gill Coliseum, Corvallis, OR

When: Saturday, November 9, 4:30 PM. ET.

The Oregon State Beavers will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday afternoon.

Cyclones Going For Third Consecutive Win Over Beavers

The Cyclones have won the only two meetings between the two teams and will try to add to their total with a win on Saturday, which will give them their third straight win in the series. They will also be trying to pick up their second win of the year when they play the beavers on Saturday.

Iowa State looked impressive offensively in their last game, scoring 110 points on Mississippi Valley State. The team will be hoping for a similar output on Saturday but will have a harder time scoring against the Beavers, who looked good defensively in their last game.

The Cyclones are shooting 51.7 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from three-point range. Michael Jacobson led the team with 20 points and nine rebounds. Prentiss Nixon finished with 16 points, five rebounds, four assists, and four steals, while Tyrese Harliburton added 12 points, seven rebounds, 14 assists, and six steals for the Cyclones, who finished the game with seven players in double figures.

The Cyclones weren’t as sharp on the defensive end, giving up 74 points in their last game. They will have their hands full with the Beavers, but they will give themselves a good chance of winning this game if they play better on defense than they did in their last game.

Beavers Trying To Make Statement

The Beavers didn’t get a lot of offseason respect despite having one of the best players in the country on their team. They looked impressive in their season-opening win over CSU Northridge but will be trying to make a statement with a win over a Power 5 conference team on Saturday afternoon.

Oregon State played well offensively in their first game, scoring 87 points against the Matadors. The team shot 46 percent from the field and 35 percent from three-point range.

Tres Tinkle led the way for the Beavers with 25 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists. Kylor Kelley finished with 18 points and eight rebounds, while Ethan Thompson added 14 points, five rebounds, and four assists.

The Beavers also played well on the defensive end, holding the Matadors to 67 points. With the Cyclones scoring 110 points in their last game, the Beavers will have to be at their best defensively to get past the Cyclones.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


The Cyclones and Beavers took care of business in their season openers, but both teams will be facing their first real test of the season on Saturday. The Beavers have the edge in this game because they are a veteran team that can score and play well on defense. Oregon State held CSU Northridge to 67 points in their last game and will be able to keep Iowa State’s offense in check after the Cyclones went off for 110 points against Mississippi Valley State. If the game ends up turning in to an offensive shootout, the Beavers have enough talent to keep up with the Cyclones, led by Tres Tinkle, who scored 25 points in their season-opening win. With the Cyclones going 0-4 ATS in their last four games against Pac-12 teams, the Beavers are the best bet here.

Prediction: Oregon State Beavers

Full-Game Total Pick

Half-Time Total Bet
