The Line: Oklahoma +1.5 -- Over/Under: 144.5
The Iowa State Cyclones and Oklahoma Sooners meet Monday in college basketball action at the Lloyd Noble Center.
The Iowa State Cyclones look for another win after winning five of their last six games. The Iowa State Cyclones are averaging 79 points on 48.4 percent shooting and allowing 65.3 points on 40.8 percent shooting. Marial Shayok is averaging 19.2 points and 1.9 assists while Talen Horton-Tucker is averaging 12.5 points and 5.4 rebounds. Lindell Wigginton is the third double-digit scorer and Michael Jacobson is grabbing six rebounds. The Iowa State Cyclones are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 73.3 percent from the free throw line. The Iowa State Cyclones are allowing 31.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.8 rebounds per game. The Iowa State Cyclones have split their last six road games.
The Oklahoma Sooners need a win here after losing five of their last eight games. The Oklahoma Sooners are averaging 72.6 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 67.6 points on 39.6 percent shooting. Christian James is averaging 16 points and two assists while Brady Manek is averaging 11.4 points and 6.5 rebounds. Miles Reynolds is dishing 1.4 assists and Kristian Doolittle is grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The Oklahoma Sooners are shooting 33.6 percent from beyond the arc and 68.2 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma Sooners are allowing 32.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.4 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma Sooners have won six of their last eight home games.
The Cyclones are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big 12, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sooners are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Monday games, 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games and 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Cyclones are 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings and the home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 9-3 in Sooners last 12 vs. Big 12. The over is 21-9-1 in Cyclones last 31 road games.
The home team has won nine of the last 10 meetings between Iowa State and Oklahoma. The Iowa State Cyclones are obviously the more talented team and playing better basketball, but Oklahoma is a solid 15-5-2 ATS this season overall and 7-3 ATS at home. The Oklahoma Sooners have also been on the wrong side of some close games, so I'm not as concerned about their recent results as some others may. At home, Oklahoma is also allowing just 37.7 percent shooting and winning by an average of 8.3 points. This is the time of year when teams are playing for their lives and you see upsets, as clubs are fighting for conference tournament positioning or a possible trip to the big dance. If they turn their season around, the Oklahoma Sooners need this game. I'll take the points.
