The Oklahoma State Cowboys (13-15, 6-10 Big 12) visit the Iowa State Cyclones (20-9, 7-9) Wednesday at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa. Tip-off for the Big 12 bubble battle is set for 7 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Oklahoma State vs. Iowa State odds and lines, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.
Oklahoma State has played in three consecutive overtime games. The Cowboys beat Kansas State 82-79 in OT Feb. 19 and then dropped extra-session affairs versus Baylor Feb. 21 (66-64) and at Oklahoma Saturday (66-62). OSU is just 3-8 since Jan. 22.
One of those eight recent losses came against these Cyclones. Iowa State defeated OSU 84-81 in overtime Jan. 26. ISU went on a four-game losing skid shortly thereafter from Feb. 1-12 but has rebounded by winning each of its last four.

Oklahoma State at Iowa State odds, lines, picks and predictions
Iowa State 69, Oklahoma State 65
Both teams figure to be on the edge when it comes to getting an NCAA Tournament at-large berth if they don’t win a Big 12 tourney title. Iowa State certainly has the edge in that pursuit, but both fives are vying to have their seasons continue into the back half of this month.
Give Iowa State the nod as the better team and a near-two-thirds win probability for a home contest against Oklahoma State side coming off an emotional loss to Oklahoma and three overtime games in a row. Will OSU have the resiliency to bang around the paint for points in this one? That’s where any Cowboy success will come because ISU plays lockdown perimeter defense.
Consider a line watch here: take Iowa State at at price under -185.
Against the spread
In this series, the favorite is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. Peg just a sliver of a lean on the CYCLONES -3.5 (-120). Waiting out a better price on the 3.5 points would be wise.
The Over is 5-1 in Iowa State’s last six overall, and that’s the best play in this Wednesday tilt between the Cowboys and Cyclones. The prospect for turnover/transition buckets is especially high.
TAKE THE OVER 130.5 (-115).
