Iowa State has looked very solid in their first two games of the year and they have won by 41 and 55 points, while Idaho State dominated their non-Division 1 opponent and barely lost to St. Thomas. Iowa State is the better team by far in this matchup, but both teams have started the season shooting at least 53% from the field. I think Iowa State is going to dominate this game on both ends of the floor and I like them to cover this massive spread. Take the Cyclones here.
