College Basketball Betting: TEXAS LONGHORNS at IOWA STATE CYCLONES (1/26)


(GetThatBet Line: Iowa State -5, Total 142.5) — Texas has the ability to play a little tempo with its opponents; their games with Kentucky, UConn and Oklahoma have indeed produced some very low scores. But the Cyclones have also broken more than a few teams out of their desired patterns – they lost to Baylor, but still scored about 15 points more than the Bears normally give up on average. And the last four times they have faced each other, the ‘Horns haven’t necessarily forced them to slow up. SOMEBODY has shot below 40% in each of those encounters, but there have been totals of 161, 162, 175 and 144 points. Iowa State is hitting 50% at home. They have lots of quickness to get down the floor and great ball movement, with about eighteen assists per game.
