The Iowa State Cyclones are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33 rebounds per game. The Iowa State Cyclones have lost all four road games.
The Auburn Tigers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Auburn Tigers are averaging 79 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 67.4 points on 41.2 percent shooting. Samir Doughty is averaging 14.4 points and 3.7 rebounds while Isaac Okoro is averaging 12.6 points and 2.1 assists. J'Von McCormick is the third double-digit scorer and Austin Wiley is grabbing 9.2 rebounds. The Auburn Tigers are shooting 31.3 percent from beyond the arc and 66.3 percent from the free throw line. The Auburn Tigers are allowing 30.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.5 rebounds per game. The Auburn Tigers have not lost a home game this season.
The Cyclones are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win. The under is 4-1 in Cyclones last 5 overall. The over is 10-4 in Cyclones last 14 road games. The under is 5-1-1 in Tigers last 7 home games and 3-0-1 in Tigers last 4 overall.
The Iowa State Cyclones have failed to cover three of their four road games where they lose by an average of 10.3 points and shoot 41.2 percent from the field. The Auburn Tigers win at home by an average of 17.1 points and shoot 47.8 percent from the field. The Iowa State Cyclones are not the same team from past years and they're shooting just 41.7 percent from the field in their last five games. That's not getting it done against an explosive Auburn squad. I'll lay the number with the Tigers at home.
