Predictions Recap (2/3)

#16 Iowa State @ #19 Oklahoma State:  OK State +1
Just the barest advantage to the home team.

A game that Iowa State won by 1 point ... in triple overtime.  I should have picked this as the TOSSUP OF THE WEEK.
 
Ohio State @ #17 Iowa:  Iowa +4

I wouldn't trust tOSU to live up this number.  But given the way the B10 has been going, they might win by double digits.

The B10 continues to be a bit of a jumble ... tOSU wins by 7.  (Okay, not double digits ;-)
 
#13 Saint Louis @ St. Joseph's:  St. Louis +5

The Billikens almost lost at home to dreadful GMU, so this will be an important road test.

St. Louis won this one handily (+16) so maybe the GMU game was just a one-off fluke.
 
#22 Connecticut @ #7 Cincinnati: Cincy +5

A traditional American conference matchup.

Cincy +5.
 
#4 Wichita State @ Northern Iowa:  Wichita State +6

WSU +9.  UNI closed it to one point at the beginning of the second half, but ran out of steam and just got overpowered down the stretch.
 
#10 Michigan @ #17 Iowa:  Iowa +2

A good chance for Michigan to get an important road victory.

Or not.  Iowa +18, after losing at home to tOSU?!  The B10 is seriously schizophrenic.
 
#23 Gonzaga @ #24 Memphis: Gonzaga +2

Memphis +6.  This was a tight game most of the way, and really could have gone either way.
 
BLOWOUT OF THE WEEK
TCU @ Iowa State: ISU by 24

ISU +15.  They may have been a little tired after the 3OT thriller.
 
TOSS-UP OF THE WEEK
Northern Arizona @ Sacramento State

I'm sure you all tuned in to this Big Sky matchup.  Sac State won easily, +17.
