The Cyclones knocked off Oklahoma State 92-83 as a 1.5-point underdog in the first-round of the Big 12 tournament and then routed TCU 84-63 as a 4.5-point favorite on Friday. Iowa State is now 8-2 over its last 10 games and 7-3 against the spread during that same stretch.
After beating Texas 63-53 as a 10.5-point favorite in the first-round of the Big 12 tournament, the Mountaineers earned a last-second victory against Kansas State 51-50 last night as a 6-point favorite. The Mountaineers have won eight of their last 10 games but are just 4-5-1 against the spread during that span.
OUR PREDICTION: The Cyclones are winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games versus the Mountaineers but they're essentially playing home games in the Big 12 tournament thanks to the amount of ISU fans that made the trek to Kansas City, MO. The Cyclones have fed off that energy and should continue to do so. They're 4-1 against the spread in their last five neutral site games, are 7-2 against the number in their last nine games overall and are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games coming off a win. The Mountaineers, meanwhile, are just 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven games, all conference matchups, and are 0-4-1 against the number in their last five games coming off a win.
