West Virginia vs. Iowa State Prediction
Will the under cash for bettors when West Virginia visits Iowa State at 3:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cyclones are 7-point home underdogs versus the Mountaineers while the total is sitting at 58 points. Both the point spread and over/under have moved off the original numbers posted by oddsmakers, with Iowa State moving from +9 down to +7 and the total moving from 57 up to 58.
WEST VIRGINIA KEY NUMBERS: The Mountaineers are 13-2 at the betting window in their last 15 road games versus an opponent with a losing home record. That said, they have failed to cover in seven of their last 10 road games and are just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games coming off a failed cover in their previous game. West Virginia is 3-13 against the spread in its last 16 games coming off a loss as well.
IOWA STATE KEY NUMBERS: The Cyclones have covered in all five of their last five home games and are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games versus a team with a winning record. They're also 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games overall and are 6-2 against the number in their last eight conference games.
OUR PREDICTION: The under is 19-7 in the Mountaineers' last 26 conference games and is 23-9 in their last 32 games overall. The under is also 7-3 in their last 10 games versus a team with a losing record, is 11-5 in their last 16 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game, and is 8-3 in their last 11 games in the month of November. West Virginia is coming off a high-scoring game against Oklahoma, but this one should fall under today. The Mountaineers won't be very motivated for this one, but their defense should still hold the Cyclone offense somewhat in check.
