NCAA Basketball Betting – Iowa State Cyclones to Get Back To Winning Ways against Oklahoma State Cowboys
Written by North Shore Sports, Inc.
NCAA Basketball betting continues once again for basketball fans Wednesday night, and Bookmaker Sportsbook brings you our picks for this clash in the Big XII between the Iowa State Cyclones and the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
The James H. Hilton Coliseum in Ames, IA will be the site of Wednesday, January 18th’s NCAA basketball betting showdown between the Oklahoma State Cowboys (9-8, 7-8 ATS) and the Iowa State Cyclones (12-5, 7-6 ATS). This 9:00 ET tipoff will be televised nationally on ESPNU.
There hasn’t been a heck of a lot of respect for the Cyclones this year, and over the course of the last week and change, we can see why. They clearly weren’t the better team in NCAA basketball betting action against either the Missouri Tigers or the Kansas Jayhawks, but now, they get to take on a significantly different type of foe.
Iowa State might not be the cream of the crop in the Big XII, but this is definitely a team that is good enough to beat most of the average teams in the conference and should be good enough to go dancing. The Cyclones are led by Royce White. He is the team’s leading scorer at 13.4 points per game, and he is also a monster rebounder, ripping down an average of 9.6 boards per night.
White is also the team’s leading assist man, dishing out 4.3 assists per game. However, he has also committed 3.9 turnovers per game as well, and this is a big time problem for these Cyclones. About the only thing that is holding them back from being a dominating team on the NCAA basketball betting odds is sloppy play. An average of 14.0 turnovers per game just isn’t going to get the job done in conference play.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys have had a terrible time playing on the road early on the conference slate. They were crushed 106-65 by the Baylor Bears over the weekend, and that came just a week after getting blown away 58-49 by the Texas Longhorns in Austin. The last road game before the conference season was a 69-52 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide as well.
Keiton Page is the team’s leading scorer at 14.4 points per game, and he hasn’t been one to fault. In the last six games, Page has averaged 18.8 points per game, and he is going to have to keep that up to beat the NCAA basketball betting spreads moving forward.
NCAA Basketball Betting Prediction – We just don’t love the way that the Cowboys have played on the road this year. We’ll get a nice price with ISU and only have to lay a relatively short number, and if that’s the case, we just don’t know if the Pokes are going to be able to stick around.
