Iowa State Cyclones Betting Prediction

First, we have the Kansas State vs Iowa State Betting prediction for the Cyclones.

It has been a good season for the Iowa State Cyclones. They started the year unranked but have now won eight of their last nine games in the toughest conference in hoops and are ranked sixth by the AP. Their defense has been strong; it comes second in the country in terms of how well it works, giving up only 89.5 points per 100 possessions.

At the moment, they are one game behind Houston. If they win here and Houston loses to Kansas, they would tie for first place in the Big 12 Regular Season. The Cyclones beat BYU in their last game, and guard Tamin Lipsey led the way with 19 points and five steals.

They use a balanced scoring system, and four of their stars score between 10.6 and 13.6 points per game on average. 6’4 sophomore Keshon Gilbert scores the most points, 13.6 per game. He also gets 4.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game from outside the paint.

He can make a difference in many ways. In his last game, he only scored eight points but had three steals, five boards, and five assists. The 6’1 junior Tamin Lipsey is in the running for player of the year. He averages 12.5 points, 5.0 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.8 steals per game, which ranks fourth in the country.

The freshman forward Milan Momcilovic, who is 6’8″ and 210 pounds, scores 11.3 points per game and plays more like an outside shooter than a real big. Senior Curtin Jones, who is 6’4″, makes the most three-pointers on the team. He averages 10.6 points per game and has made 55 this season.

KenPom has Iowa State ranked 11th overall right now. Their overall efficiency is 69th, and their defensive efficiency is second. Their speed is the 177th fastest in the country. Bracketology says that the Cyclones will get a 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Kansas State Wildcats Betting Prediction

Second, we have the Kansas State vs Iowa State Betting prediction for the Wildcats.

On Senior Night, Kansas State doesn’t have an easy game against Iowa State. Even with the crowd behind them, it will be hard for them to win. The last two games Kansas State played, they lost to Cincinnati and Kansas, both on the road.

They are 10th in the Big 12, which means they probably won’t get an at-large bid. They’ll try to pick up speed here before the conference tournament. In their most recent game, a loss to Kansas, big man Will McNair Jr. led them with 17 points and 10 boards.

The Wildcats’ top three scorers have been on fire all year. Tylor Perry, a 5’11 senior, leads the group with 15.5 PPG. With 4.5 assists per game, he also makes the most plays on the team and has made the most threes this season with 83. It was Perry’s worst game of the year so far, going 0-6 with only two points against Kansas.

He wants to get back on track. Also in the backcourt, Cam Carter scores a lot. The 6’3 junior gets 14.7 points per game and 5 rebounds per game. Carter couldn’t score either because the KU wings stopped him. He only made 1-7 shots and ended up with 3 points.

Arthur Kaluma, a 6’7″ forward, is their third scorer. He plays bigger than his height and averages 14.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. Will McNair Jr., a 6’11”, 265-pound senior center, scores 7.9 points per game and grabs 5.4 rebounds per game.

KenPom currently ranks Kansas State as the 70th best team in the country. They are 145th in how well they attack and 23rd in how well they defend. They rank 194th in terms of how fast they play, which is the same as the Cyclones. To get into the Big Dance, Kansas State would probably have to win the Big 12 Tournament.

Wildcats vs Cyclones Betting Pick

There is one big problem with this game that Senior Night can’t fix: Kansas State’s offense is having a hard time against the nation’s second-best defense. Kansas State has three scorers, but things quickly go badly when strong defenses take away some of their choices.

They took Perry and Carter away and tried to make the other Wildcats beat them. This is how Kansas did it. Still, Kansas won by 22 points because they only let Perry and Carter score five points between them. McNair scored 17 points and three other players scored 10.

There are some K-State players who could score in the halfcourt, but Iowa State’s defense is better than Kansas’s. Kansas State hasn’t been very good at home this season. They’ve lost straight up to TCU, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. Iowa State, on the other hand, has been beating every Big 12 team, no matter where they played, and their only loss in league play was to a top-20 team.

Iowa State gives and takes the ball well, and their defense will lock down. They will be able to cover this spread.
