The Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Iowa State Cyclones meet in college basketball action from Hilton Coliseum on Wednesday night.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys will look to bounce back from back-to-back losses after a 66-62 OT loss to Oklahoma in their last game. Avery Anderson III leads the Cowboys in scoring with 12.2 PPG while Bryce Thompson has 11 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Oklahoma State so far this season. Bryce Williams has got 8.6 PPG while Isaac Likekele has 7.3 PPG with 5.6 RPG and a team-high 3.4 APG to lead the Cowboys in assists this season. Moussa Cisse also has a team-high 6.2 RPG to lead the Cowboys on the glass this year. As a team, Oklahoma State is averaging 69.5 PPG on 43.8% shooting from the field, 30.1% from three and 66.7% from the foul line while allowing 67.3 PPG on 39.6% shooting from the field and 32.9% from three this season.

The Iowa State Cyclones will try to build on their four-game win streak after a 74-73 road win over Kansas State last time out. Izaiah Brockington leads the Cyclones in scoring and rebounding with 17.9 PPG and 7.4 RPG while Tyrese Hunter has 11.1 PPG with a team-high 4.8 APG to lead the Cyclones in the assist department as the only other double-digit scorer for Iowa State so far this season. Gabe Kalscheur also has 9.3 PPG as well this season for ISU. As a team, Iowa State is averaging 68.3 PPG on 44.6% shooting from the field, 33.4% from three and 69.1% from the foul line while allowing 62.6 PPG on 42.4% shooting from the field and 29.6% from three this season.

Oklahoma State is 0-3-2 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the over is 9-3-2 in their last 14 Wednesday games. Iowa State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a losing road record and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 Wednesday games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.

I get the case to be made for the Cyclones at home in this one but the Cowboys have been involved in a ton of close games as of late and as good as Iowa State has been at times, this just has the feels of a one possession game. Give me the Cowboys plus the points here.
