The 11th seed-Iowa State Cyclones are on a surprising win over the LSU Tigers in the first round of the tournament. Although the Tigers had to fight them a lot, that won’t take anything away from the Cyclones after controlling the majority of the game. The defense kept LSU at a 19-point season low and managed to keep things going Sunday against the Wisconsin Badgers. 3rd seed Badgers struggled in their first game against Colgate with a goal in the end.
Luckily, the Badgers have one of the nation’s best players Johnny Davis. He took over the game and scored the final 14 points for Wisconsin. He ended the night with a 25, but also deformed his ankle. Can Davis put this team behind him again or will the Iowa State defense rob another of their poor win? Here are the odds for this second match, with the help of WynnBET Sportsbook.
Total: 155 (Over -110/Under -110)
The Cyclones will be in full force Sunday with Davis. They are the 10th ranked team for adjusted defensive effectiveness and will be more tested than the first game against LSU. However, Davis is not the only talented superstar on the field. The state of Iowa has its own bell in Izaiah Brockington. He’s been at the heart of this offense and has led Team Clone to some tough wins this year against Xavier and Iowa. Even so, Cyclones still tried to attack. They ranked 277th in terms of scoring ability and sometimes rely too much on the defense.
Badger’s offense is better and play is more stable. They also have more weapons than Davis that can advance the hard way. It was sad for the State of Iowa yesterday but I don’t see them stealing this game from Wisconsin. Cyclones’ offense is just too one-sided.
Lean: Wisconsin -4.5 (-110)
