NCAA Tournament Iowa State Cyclones vs Nevada Wolfpack Start Time, Betting Odds

The Iowa State Cyclones and Nevada Wolfpack meet up in NCAA Tournament play on Thursday night as the final game to tip-off. The game is scheduled for a 9:57 p.m. start time and it will be televised nationally on truTV. The college basketball odds for the game have the Cyclones favored to pick up the win and advance.

College Basketball Odds
Iowa State -6.5
Total: 156.5 points

This should be a solid matchup between a couple of really good point guards. Monte Morris at Iowa State leads the Cyclones in scoring at 16.3 points, plus hands out better than six assists per game. Nevada features Marcus Marshall, who averages 19.8 points to lead the Mountain West and shoots it better than 38 percent from the 3-point line. 

Nevada scored a ton of points this season, averaging 80 per contest as they are back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 10 years and only the seventh time in program history.

The Cyclones come into this one having won nine of the last 10 overall, including a Big 12 title win. They’ve been in each of the last six tournaments and this one will feature a regional flair as they are playing in Milwaukee, not that far from home. 

Deonte Burton will look for a big game. He’s averaging 15 points per game and has labeled this as a business trip for the Cyclones.
