The Iowa State Cyclones and Miami Hurricanes face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown in the Sweet 16 at the United Center. This is almost a home game for Iowa State and they should have an advantage in terms of fans at this game. 

Iowa State comes into this game with a 22-12 record overall and they have gone 19-15 against the spread. There weren't a whole lot of expectations heading into the NCAA tournament, but they have knocked off LSU and Wisconsin so far. In the last game against Iowa State, the defense was elite giving up only 49 points and that led to the five point victory. Iowa State is averaging 65.9 points while their defense is giving up 62.3 points per game. Izaiah Brockington has been the top player for Iowa State averaging 17.1 points while shooting 45.1 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from behind the three point line. Iowa State is averaging 65.9 points while their defense is giving up 62.3 points per game. In this game if Iowa State wants to win the offense is going to need to find a way to get going.

On the other side of this matchup is the Miami Hurricanes who sit with a 25-10 record overall and they have gone 20-14-1 against the spread. Miami has beat USC and Auburn so far in the NCAA tournament. In the last game against Auburn the defense was elite giving up only 61 points and the offense scored 79 points on the way to the victory.

Miami is 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games played on Friday. Iowa State is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games played on Friday. The under is 4-0 in Iowa State’s last four games played on Friday. 

Iowa State’s offense is an issue and their lack of scoring is going to let them down in this game. I expect Miami is going to score 70 or 75 points and that is going to be enough for Miami to cover the spread. Back Miami against the spread.
