Two of the top teams in the country will face off here on Monday night in a massive conference matchup.

Both of these teams are having incredible seasons, and both of them have all, but officially secured their spot in the NCAA tournament. Now they will push for a top seed in the tournament with a strong finish to the regular season and push for a Big 12 regular season championship as well. The winner of this game will put themselves in first place of the conference heading into the last couple weeks of the regular season.

Iowa State has been tremendous this season winning 20 out of their first 25 games on the year. They will look to keep the momentum rolling when they face one of their toughest tests of the regular season here on Monday night in Houston.

Houston has consistently been one of the best teams in the country over the last several seasons. However, they have yet to win that elusive national championship, and this year may be their best shot of all. They come into this game sitting at number three in the country as they have put together an incredible regular season, and they will look to finish it on a strong note. A victory in this game would put them in possession of the top spot within the conference, and put them as the favorite to win the regular season championship and arguably the conference tournament as well. 

They will need to play a game here at home against a tough Iowa State team if they want to keep the momentum rolling. Their defense is only about 55 points per game this season which is one of the best in the country and they will need a similar type of game in this one if they want to be successful here on Monday night. They have built up quite the résumé, despite all three of their losses coming within conference play, and they will look to extend their three game-winning streak when they quality performance here in this one. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Houston is 14-0 at home 

- Iowa State is 4-3 on the road 

- Iowa State is 3-4 against ranked opponents 

I expect this to be a close, and competitive contest throughout the majority of the game. In the end, I do look for Houston to pull away and grab a crucial victory over Iowa State here on Monday night at home. Houston has just been so tough at home this season and I look for that to carry them and I look for their incredible defense to lead the way in this game as well. Not only do I look for Houston to pick up a solid victory over Iowa State here on Monday night but I also look for Houston to cover the spread in the process.
