BYU is Heating Up

BYU is heating up heading into this game and they have won two games in a row. Two games ago against Kansas they won 76-68 and in the last game against TCU they scored 87 points on the way to the 12 point victory. Treven Knell had a strong game putting up 20 points, two rebounds, and one assist. BYU on the season is averaging 82.7 points while their defense is giving up 69.4 points per game. Jaxson Robinson is averaging 13.9 points while shooting 42.3 percent from the field. 

Iowa State Needs to be Careful

Iowa State has a ton of confidence when they play at home, but this isn’t a game they can overlook, or they will be beaten. In the last game against UCF, it wasn’t a good game but Iowa State was able to secure the 60-52 victory. Tre King had a strong game putting up 16 points and six rebounds. Iowa State is averaging 76.6 points while their defense is giving up 61.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 91st in the league while the defense is ranked 6th.

BYU vs Iowa State Betting Prediction

BYU has a ton of confidence heading into this game and they are going to give Iowa State a run for their money here. BYU is averaging 82.7 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Iowa State is going to struggle to slow down the Iowa State offense. Iowa State probably still comes out on top, but it wouldn’t shock me if BYU came out with a win here. Back BYU against the spread.
