The Iowa State Cyclones and Oklahoma State Cowboys meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Gallagher-Iba Arena.

The Iowa State Cyclones look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Iowa State Cyclones are averaging 83.6 points on 49.4 percent shooting and allowing 64.9 points on 40.5 percent shooting. Marial Shayok is averaging 20.1 points and 2.2 assists while Michael Jacobson is averaging 15.4 points and 6.4 rebounds. Talen Horton-Tucker is the third double-digit scorer and Lindell Wigginton is dishing three assists. The Iowa State Cyclones are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 72 percent from the free throw line. The Iowa State Cyclones are allowing 31.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.2 rebounds per game. The Iowa State Cyclones have lost their only road game this season.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys look for a third straight victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are averaging 71.2 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 69.4 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Cameron McGriff is averaging 13.4 points and 7.6 rebounds while Curtis Jones is averaging 12.3 points and 1.3 assists. Lindy Waters III is the third double-digit scorer and Thomas Dziagwa is dishing 1.8 assists. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are shooting 39.4 percent from beyond the arc and 65.7 percent from the free throw line.

The Cyclones are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win, 4-12 ATS in their last 16 road games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Cowboys are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Big 12 and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Cyclones are 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Oklahoma State. The under is 15-5-1 in Cowboys last 21 overall. The under is 10-4 in Cyclones last 14 overall.

The Iowa State Cyclones are starting to heat up at the right time, as they're shooting 53.4 percent from the field and outscoring teams by 20.2 points in their last five games. The Oklahoma State Cowboys have been a bit hit or miss this season, but they've spent a lot of time on the road. At home, OK State has a history of being a really tough team and always wins two or three games like this when few expected. In five home games this season, Oklahoma State is outscoring teams by 8.6 points while allowing just 37.9 percent shooting. The home team has won four of the last six meetings between Iowa State and Oklahoma State. Give me the points.

Pick:
Oklahoma State Cowboys +5
