Iowa State Cyclones vs. Kansas State Wildcats

Where: Bramlage Coliseum, Manhattan, KS

When: Saturday, February 16, 4:00 PM. ET.

The Kansas State Wildcats will be trying to increase their lead in the Big 12 standings when they take on the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday afternoon.

Cyclones Going For Fifth Win In Six Games

The Cyclones had their four-game winning streak snapped by TCU in their last game and will be trying to rebound from the loss with a win over the Wildcats, which will give them their fifth win in their last six games.

Iowa State, which is currently projected to be a number four seed in the NCAA tournament, can also reduce its two-game deficit in the Big 12 standings with a win over the conference-leading Wildcats, which should also improve its NCAA tournament seeding.

The Cyclones have played well offensively, averaging 79 points per game. The team is shooting 48 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range.

Marial Shayok leads the way for the Cyclones with 19.3 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. Lindell Wigginton is averaging 12.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game, while Michael Jacobson is averaging 12.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.

The Cyclones have also done well defensively, holding opponents to 66.8 points per game. They gave up 92 points in their last game and will need a better defensive performance to get the win on Saturday.

Wildcats Going For 10th Win In 11 Games

The Wildcats have played well this season, winning 19 of their first 26 games, which allowed them to take the lead in the Big 12 standings. They will be trying to increase their lead in the division by picking up their fifth win in a row and 10th win in their last 11 games.

Kansas State is currently projected to be a number 5 seed and have a chance to improve their seeding with a season sweep of the 23rd ranked Cyclones, which will give them their fourth win in five games against ranked opponents.

The Wildcats have struggled offensively and are averaging 65.9 points per game. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 33 percent from three-point range.

Barry Brown Jr. leads the way for the Wildcats with 15.4 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Dean Wade is averaging 13.9 points and 6.7 rebounds per game, while Kamau Stokes is averaging 10.3 points and 3.5 assists per game.

The Wildcats have been exceptional on the defensive end and are holding opponents to 59.5 points per game, which is fourth in the country. They gave up 62.7 points per game in their last four games and need to continue playing well to get past the Cyclones on Saturday.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Wildcats have played well against the spread, winning their last four games and their last seven games against teams with winning records. The Cyclones have also played well against the spread and have won five of their last six games following a straight up loss. However, the Wildcats have the edge in this game because they have played better than the Cyclones in recent games and have only one home loss this season.

Prediction: Kansas State Wildcats

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Cyclones have played over the total in their last four games against teams with winning records and in five of their last six games. The Wildcats have played over the total in their last four games and in their last four games against Big 12 opponents.

Prediction: Over

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Wildcats will win the first half of this game because they have played a little better than the Cyclones in the first half of their last three games, averaging 32 points per game while the Cyclones average 31.7 points per game.

Prediction: Kansas State Wildcats

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Cyclones and Wildcats are averaging 63.7 combined points per game in the first half of their last three games and they will fall short of the first half total in this game if they maintain their current scoring pace.

Prediction: Under
