Iowa State comes in with momentum having won the B12 Tournament but they didn’t have to do a ton of heavy lifting to get the title.
Nevada won the Mountain West regular season and tournament. They have won nine in a row heading into the NCAAs.
Iowa State Cyclones
ISU comes in with momentum and from more than just winning the conference tournament. All told they have won nine of their last 10 games.
It helps to have what might be the best true point guard in college hoops in Monte Morris. Don’t be fooled by the fact he is also leading the team in scoring.
This season the Cyclones have no choice but to play small ball but they do it well. They have a lot of distance shooters and everyone knows it is their responsibility to rebound.
This one looks like it could be tight. The key for be is burly Deonte Burton. He has to be able to bully his way around a bit to vary things up offensively.
The Mountain West was down this season so it is hard to gauge the success of Nevada as regular season and postseason champs.
They have won 9 in a row though and covered in all of them so it appears they are better than most think.
Stylistically they should be just fine against ISU. They like to push the pace too, scoring 80ppg and are a good shooting team. They are also really good at defending the three – 30% allowed.
Leading scorer Marcus Marshall scores 19ppg. The transfer from Missouri State combines with Jordan Caroline, another MVC transfer, to form an experienced and productive backcourt.
PF Cameron Oliver is not a hulk but he could be the difference maker inside. He can score inside and out.
CBB Betting Trends:
- NEV are 38-15-2 ATS in their last 55 games overall.
- ISU are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
- Over is 16-5 in ISU last 21 overall.
- Over is 9-3 in ISU last 12 NCAA Tournament games.
Free Iowa State Cyclones vs. Nevada Wolfpack NCAAB Prediction:
ISU is capable of blowing out Nevada but I do not see the opposite as likely. I like the Cyclones to advance but there are probably better values on the board.
