Oklahoma State at Iowa State -3 O/U 162.5
We're in the dog days of power conference play with many teams wrapping up the regular season this weekend. That of course means a lot of second meetings and plenty of familiarity. Iowa State and Oklahoma State last saw one another back in mid-January with the Cyclones winning a high scoring affair, 96-86 in Stillwater. While ISU hasn't changed its stripes much that same cannot be said for the Cowboys who completely overhauled their defensive philosophy. Rather than run up and down and press, OSU is playing a much more controlled brand of basketball. They've ditched the high-pressure defense and instead focused on containment. It's paid off in a big way as Oklahoma State has won 10 of 11 with seven of those games going under the total. This has also led to a slower pace with seven of those games failing to top 70 possessions. If tonight's game hovers around that 70-possession mark there's a good chance we can cash in on the under. Note that the first meeting closed 158.5 and that was with Oklahoma State playing crazy fast and next to no defense.
