The Daily Gambling Fix 12/30/11 — Briana Lee
The Game: Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Iowa State Cyclones
The Reason: Rutgers may have “home-field advantage,” with this game taking place at Yankee Stadium, but Iowa State comes in as the hotter team, despite having lost their last two games. The Cycloness have lost six games all season, but five of those were against ranked teams, including their last two losses against Oklahoma (26-6) and Kansas State (30-23). Prior to that, Iowa State won three in a row, including a big upset against then No. 2 Oklahoma State. The Cycloness have also covered the spread in each of their last three games. Rutgers, on the other hand, played only one ranked team all season – a 41-31 loss to West Virginia. With more big-game experience this season, look for the Cyclones to come away with the win at the Pinstripe Bowl.
The Game: Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Oklahoma Sooners
The Reason: It was supposed to be a big year for the Oklahoma Sooners. It has turned out to be anything but that. Entering the season as the AP’s No.1 ranked team, Oklahoma will now be playing for nothing more than the Insight Bowl and a bid to remain in the Top 25. Since losing star wideout Ryan Broyles, the Sooners’ passing game has struggled mightily. The Hawkeyes are not a great team, but we expect the Sooners’ recent struggles and a lack of motivation to be enough to keep Iowa close, as they cover the 14-point spread.
2011 Record: (233-229-9), This Week: (2-2), Last Week: (5-5)
