Texas vs. Iowa State Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Texas vs. Iowa State 1/1/18

Which team will grab its first Big 12 win of the season tonight when Iowa State plays host to Texas at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Texas is the slight favorite on the road, as the Longhorns are getting odds of -3 points against Iowa State. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 137 points. Today’s contest takes place from Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa and will air live on ESPNU.

Texas is coming off a 92-86 loss at home to Kansas on Friday to open up Big 12 play. The Longhorns are 9-4 overall and 3-6 against the spread. Texas has covered in just two of its last eight lined games. The Longhorns are averaging 73.2 points per game this year while allowing 62.8 per contest. Dylan Osetkowski is putting up 14.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game this season while Mohamed Bamba is adding 11.8 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4.6 blocks per contest.

Iowa State is coming off a 91-75 loss at home to Kansas State on Friday. That snapped a nine-game win streak for the Cyclones. Iowa State is now 9-3 overall and 3-6-1 against the spread. The Cyclones are putting up 75.5 points per game while giving up 71.2 per contest. Lindell Wigginton is averaging 16.2 points per game to lead Iowa State while Nick Babb is adding 12.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.1 assists per contest.

Bet on Texas vs. Iowa State

The home team has won four straight meetings in this series, but Texas is 3-1 against the spread in those four games. However, Texas is just 2-7-1 against the spread in their last 10 conference games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine after a loss. Iowa State is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 conference games and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 at home. The public betting is with Texas, but I like Iowa State at home.
