West Virginia at Iowa State picks and predictions


Iowa State 70, West Virginia 66


ISU’s slide has been very real. WVU can struggle against a good inside game and is inconsistent, but the Mountaineers would be worth a look if this price got to +155 or better.

PASS otherwise.

Would want WVU +5.5 or more.


The Over has hit in 4 straight series meetings and by double-digits in the last 3, is 12-3-1 in WVU’s last 16 games against winning teams, is 27-8 in the Mountaineers’ last 35 road games and is 4-0 in ISU’s last 4 games against winning teams.

Both sides can pile up points off turnovers and on put-backs. WVU got to the free-throw line 31 times in meeting No. 1 and has been solid of late from beyond the perimeter.

TAKE THE OVER 134.5 (-105).
