VEGAS: The experts in the desert originally tabbed Iowa State as a 6.5 point favorite over the Wolfpack. Vegas has also giving Iowa State 65-to-1 odds to win the national title.

KENPOM: The popular statistics website projects Iowa State to win by an 81-74 final. It also tabs Iowa State at a 73 percent chance to win the game.
