The Iowa State Cyclones (12-16, CONF 5-10) and Oklahoma State Cowboys (14-14, CONF 4-11) face off in a Big 12 showdown at Gallagher-Iba Arena. Iowa State has won the last three games over Oklahoma State including an 89-82 victory earlier this season. 

Iowa State has been a major disappointment this season and coming into this game they have only won three of the last ten games. Over the last ten games, Iowa State has also only covered four spreads during that ten games stretch. 

The offense hasn’t been great for Iowa State, but the defense has really let them down. On the road this season the Cyclones are giving up 78.9 points per game and letting opponents shoot 49.5 percent from the field.

Cyclones leading scorer Tyrese Haliburton is out for the season and that has hurt their production. Guard Rasir Bolton is averaging 14.4 points per game and he is going to need to be good in this game. 

Oklahoma State has been playing a little better the last couple of weeks having won three of the last five games, but their last game they lost by 30 points to Kansas. 

At home this season Oklahoma State has an 8-6 record and usually, when they have success it’s because of the defense. At home this season the Cowboys are giving up 64.4 points per game.

Oklahoma State is led by Cameron McGriff who is averaging 11.6 points while shooting 43.5 percent from the field. In each of the last three games McGriff has scored at least 16 points, and he could be an x-factor for Oklahoma State. 

The over is 14-3 in Oklahoma State’s last 17 games played on Saturday. The over is 9-3-1 in Oklahoma State’s last 13 games overall. Iowa State is 11-5-1 in the last 17 meetings against Oklahoma State. 

Iowa State has dominated the series and it’s going to happen again in this game. They have struggled to score, but the Cowboys have also. Look for Iowa State to find just enough offense to cover the spread
