Now I don’t like to be the bearer of bad news for the Hypnotoads, but I don’t see them coming out on top in this matchup. Iowa State is both the higher-ranked seed and the better team. I know they just got beat down by Georgia, and by no means do I see this game being a repeat of that trainwreck. But TCU should not have high hopes of winning this game.
Now TCU is not a bad team. They’re 22nd ranked in the country and have some great wins against some solid teams. I will also say I love the way that Damion Baugh has been playing. He’s been running the team with 13.2 points per game, 5.5 assists per game, and 1.8 steals per game. However, this team has been going through a tough patch, and I don’t think running into a great team like Iowa State is going to do them any favors. Especially not with the wins that Iowa State has under its belt.
Iowa State has had a very solid season moving into this game. Just to list a few of the teams they have beaten: Kansas, Kansas State, Texas, and, oh look at that, TCU earlier in the year. Leading the charge for this team in the points category has been Jaren Holmes, with 13.5 points per game, but I believe the unsung hero for the Cyclones had been their guard Tamin Lipsey. His 4.7 assists per game and 1.9 steals per game have rallied his team more than once. His crucial defensive minutes are incredibly needed, and when you pair him up with the shooters that Iowa State has, it can be an absolutely deadly combination.
As much as I see this being a good game, there is no doubt in my mind that the Cyclones come out on top. They have a more well-rounded roster with wins against much better teams. Plus, it never hurts that TCU has already been beaten by them once this season. Bet on Iowa State and get $150 in bonus bets if you pick the winner with DraftKings.
