College Basketball Betting Trends

Texas

The Longhorns are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall. Texas is 0-4 ATS in its last four Saturday games.

Iowa State

The Cyclones are 4-0 ATS in their last four Big 12 games. Iowa State is 4-1 ATS in its last five home games.

Prediction:

The Cyclones are ranked 11th nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency and 22nd in defense, while Texas is 38th in offense and 35th in defense. Iowa State is arguably better than any of the teams Texas played while losing five of seven, including Kansas. Being on the road and perhaps in a letdown situation after the win over the Jayhawks, I'm going with a Cyclones squad that has looked fantastic their last two games.
