The Oklahoma State Cowboys and Iowa State Cyclones meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Hilton Coliseum.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys look for a big road win to get back to a .500 record. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are averaging 70.4 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 69.6 points on 40.5 percent shooting. Cameron McGriff is averaging 13.4 points and 8.2 rebounds while Lindy Waters III is averaging 11.5 points and 2.9 assists. Thomas Dziagwa is the third double-digit scorer and Michael Weathers is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are shooting 38.6 percent from beyond the arc and 67.9 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are allowing 32.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma State Cowboys have lost three of their last four road games.

The Iowa State Cyclones look for a victory after winning six of their last eight games. The Iowa State Cyclones are averaging 79.1 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 64.5 points on 40.4 percent shooting. Marial Shayok is averaging 19.4 points and two assists while Michael Jacobson is averaging 13.6 points and 6.3 rebounds. Talen Horton-Tucker is the third double-digit scorer and Lindell Wigginton is dishing 2.7 assists. The Iowa State Cyclones are shooting 35.6 percent from beyond the arc and 71.9 percent from the free throw line. The Iowa State Cyclones are allowing 31.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.1 rebounds per game. The Iowa State Cyclones have won eight of their last nine home games.

The Cowboys are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Cyclones are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Iowa State and the road team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Cyclones last 5 overall. The under is 18-7-1 in Cowboys last 26 overall.

The Iowa State Cyclones just beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys by six points on the road last week, and they now return home where they're shooting 50.3 percent, allowing 38 percent shooting and outscoring teams by an average of 22.7 points. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are usually a tough defensive team that can keep games close, but they've failed to cover nine of their last 11 games and are shooting just 38.9 percent from the field in their last five games. Iowa State is a team I'm not trying to step in front of at the moment. I'll lay the chalk with the Cyclones at home.

Pick:
Iowa State -13
