Cyclones Have Had Mountaineers Number

The Iowa State Cyclones and West Virginia Mountaineers are both a step behind the pack in the Big 12, but a win Monday will go a long way for either team. Iowa State has held the advantage in recent meetings between the two teams as the Cyclones are 3-1 SU and ATS in their past four games against WVU.

Shark Bites
  • West Virginia is 7-2 SU in their past nine games following a SU loss.
  • Iowa State is 5-2 ATS in their past seven games as underdogs.
  • The UNDER is 8-1 in West Virginia’s past nine games at home.

When WVU and Iowa State met less than three weeks ago it was a competitive affair that saw the Mountaineers squeak out an 81-76 victory. Devin Williams was a huge factor in the victory as the junior scored 17 points and 18 rebounds in that game.

West Virginia comes into this game with three losses in their past four games, which now has them on the outside looking in within the Big 12. The Mountaineers were up in each of their past two games, but ultimately poor shooting and rebounding led to them losing both of those affairs.

If Iowa State wants to beat WVU and attempt to surge into the Big 12 discussion, they will need to fix their rebounding. The Cyclones have the worst rebounding margin in the conference and will be facing the third and fifth best rebounders in the Big 12 Monday.
