Click Here for the Latest Odds

The West Virginia Mountaineers will play the Iowa State Cyclones in a Big 12 Game on Saturday afternoon at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa.

The West Virginia Mountaineers are 3-5 (1-4) this season after they lost to TCU by a score of 41-31 in their last game. West Virginia allowed 494 total yards and turned the ball over twice in the loss. The West Virginia offense is averaging 34.1 points per game with 263.8 passing yards per game and 172 rushing yards per game. JT Daniels has thrown for 1,961 yards, 12 touchdowns, and seven interceptions for the Mountaineers this season. Tony Mathis Jr. (questionable) has rushed for 492 yards and five scores, while Bryce Ford-Wheaton has caught 48 passes for 567 yards and five touchdowns for West Virginia. The West Virginia defense is giving up 34.6 points per game and 416.9 yards per game.

The Iowa State Cyclones are 3-5 (0-5) this season after they lost to Oklahoma by a score of 27-13 in their last game. Iowa State out gained Oklahoma by a total of 374-332, but turned the ball over three times in the loss. The Iowa State offense is averaging 21.6 points per game with 272.9 passing yards per game and 97.3 rushing yards per game. Hunter Dekkers has thrown for 2,151 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions for the Cyclones this season. Jirehl Brock has rushed for 420 yards and two touchdowns, while Xavier Hutchinson has caught 77 passes for 830 yards and five scores for Iowa State. The Iowa State defense is allowing 16.6 points per game and 295 yards per game.

West Virginia is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 conference games. The under is 4-1 in West Virginia’s last 5 road games. Iowa State is 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. The under is 4-0 in Iowa State’s last 4 games. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams have struggled in conference play, but Iowa State will have the home field advantage in this game. Iowa State is the much better defensive team, but their offense does not generate much. West Virginia is not good defensively, allowing over 34 points per game. I think this game will go the same way Iowa State’s last game went against Oklahoma and I like the under here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
