 NCAA CBB Thursday Cash-In
Xavier Musketeers @ Iowa Hawkeyes
Line: Iowa -6

The Match-Up

Two undefeated teams will face off on Thanksgiving day as the 5-0 Xavier Musketeers take on the Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa comes into the game ranked and unbeaten, but who they have really played this season? No one you or I have likely heard of. That said, they are one of the better shooting teams in the country, a stat that generally translates well. They are averaging over 90 points per game, a stat that may be skewed a bit by the competition, but worth mentioning nonetheless. This team can score and when they get it going watch out.

Xavier comes in also undefeated, but like Iowa, really have yet to face any stiff competition. While they do not score at nearly the same clip that Iowa does, they do have the 12th best shooting percentage in the NCAA at 52.5. The strength of the Musketeers is their guard play. They are small, quick and really have a knack of controlling the flow of the game. That could be very disruptive to the fast paced Iowa attack.


IOWA are 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games overall.
XAV are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Big Ten.
Under is 10-3 in XAV last 13 Thu. games.
XAV are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall.

The Verdict:

Iowa is the sexy pick this their high scoring offense but Xavier is the much more well rounded team. Guard play with inevitably decide this one and the Musketeers hold a distinct edge. We'll take the points in this one.

Pick: XAVIER +6
