West Virginia hasn’t been playing well, but Iowa State isn’t either. The Cyclones are only 2-4 against the spread after a loss this season and their offense should struggle to keep pace with what West Virginia can do. The Mountaineers have the capability to be an elite team, which is something we haven’t seen from the Cyclones. Look for WVU to put it together tonight.
