The Line: Oklahoma Sooners -8.5 -- Over/Under: 144.5
The Iowa State Cyclones and the Oklahoma Sooners meet in college basketball action from Lloyd Noble Center on Wednesday.
The Cyclones enter this one at 10-13 so far. After losing four straight versus Auburn, Baylor, Texas and West Virginia, Iowa State got back in the win column their last time out versus Kansas State.
In the win over the Wildcats, Iowa State’s Solomon Young led the team on 20 points and three rebounds. Rasir Bolton added 13 points with 13 points and four rebounds and Terrence Lewis had 12 points and three boards.
Over on the Oklahoma side, they’re 15-8 this year. The Sooners are 2-2 in their last four games, falling to Kansas State and Texas Tech while beating Oklahoma State and West Virginia otherwise.
In the win over the Mountaineers, Oklahoma’s Kristian Doolittle put up 27 points with 12 rebounds to lead the team. Brady Manek was also in double-digits there with 11 points and eight rebounds.
The Sooners are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 home games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 after a straight-up win. Oklahoma is 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall and the under is 5-1 in the last six overall.
Meanwhile, the Cyclones are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 0-7 ATS in their last seven Wednesday games. Iowa State is 1-7 ATS in their last eight after an ATS win and the over is 12-5 in their last 17 road games.
Iowa State has had some tough matchups lately, playing five ranked teams in their last eight games. The Cyclones were competitive in a couple of them—specifically the four-point loss to Auburn—but on the whole it’s been a tough run.
As for Oklahoma, they’ve had a few scoring duds lately but overall they’re doing pretty well, again against tough competition. I like the Sooners to come in strong here and bang out a cover.
