This is a Free basketball prediction on the Iowa State Cyclones.
The Cyclones defeated Oklahoma Thursday, and they will face Big 12 rivals Kansas in the quarterfinals in Kansas City Friday. These two teams have played a couple of tight games earlier this season, but the Cyclones lost both of those both on their home court, as well as at Kansas.
They went down fighting though, sending each of those games to overtime, only to lose in the extra frame.
While Kansas has won nine of the last 10 meetings straight up, they haven’t been able to cover the points in a lot of those victories. The Cyclones are 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings with the Jayhawks. Iowa State has also covered the number in six of it’s last eight games overall.
The Jayhawks have won eight of their last 10 overall, and they have covered the spread in eight of those previous 10 games as well. If you take away their home games however, we see a totally different trend emerge. Four of their last 10 game were on the road, and they lost two of those four, failing to cover in each of those losses. The other two games were both close, each of those requiring overtime to decide a winner.
The Jayhawks didn’t have any trouble with Texas Tech playing at a neutral site, but the Red Raiders are bottom feeders in the Big 12. We should see the Cyclones give them all they can handle today, and we will be getting plenty of points considering the previous two meetings between these teams each went to overtime.
Take Iowa State.
