Point Spread: +2/-110 Iowa State
NCAAB FREE PICK: Iowa State +2
The Iowa State Cyclones are one of the most underrated teams in the country. The fact that this team wasn't ranked in the Top 25 once this seasons is a shame and so is their No. 8 seed in the tournament. They finished with the same conference record as Baylor, yet they get a No. 3 seed. Now they come into their game against Connecticut, who went just 8-10 inside conference play, and are underdogs to win this game.
