The Oklahoma State Cowboys (17-14, CONF 7-11) and Iowa State Cyclones (12-19, CONF 5-13) face off in the Big 12 tournament at the Sprint Center. Oklahoma State beat Iowa State 73-61 earlier this season. 

It has been a down year for Iowa State and coming into this game they have only won 12 games, and five during conference play. Coming into this game Iowa State has lost three games in a row and seven of the last ten. Over the last six games, Iowa State has only covered one of the spreads.

Over the last five games Iowa State is averaging 63.4 points per game while the defense is giving up 78.4 points. The Cyclones have been without their leading scorer for the last month, and their second-leading scorer Rasir Bolton is questionable for this game as he deals with a concussion.

The team’s third-leading scorer is Solomon Young who is averaging 10.1 points while shooting 54.3 percent from the field. 

Oklahoma State has been up and down this year, and coming into this game they have won three games in a row. In the Cowboys last game they were underdogs on the road against Texas, but the offense was elite putting up 81 points and that led to an easy victory. 

Overall this season Oklahoma State hasn’t been considered elite, averaging only 67.5 points per game while the defense is giving up 65.9 points. 

Oklahoma State is led by forward Cameron McGriff who is averaging 12.2 points while shooting 45.2 percent from the field. 

Iowa State is 0-8 against the spread in their last eight games played on Wednesday. The over is 7-2 in Iowa State’s last nine games overall. Oklahoma State is 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games overall and against the Big 12. 

Iowa State is banged up heading into this game and have zero confidence. The Cowboys defense is confident after what they did to Texas and the defense is going to lock down in this game and that will be the difference. Back Oklahoma State to win this game and cover the spread.
