Iowa is currently the second-favorite in the national-championship odds, but at +700, is miles behind 36-0 South Carolina (-200), which advanced to the Final Four with a 70-58 win over #3 Oregon State in the Albany Regional 1 yesterday.

The Gamecocks will face NC State, the #3 seed in Regional 4 in Portland, which knocked off #1 Texas in the Elite Eight (76-66) as 6.5-point underdogs.

Hawkeye Offense Humming in Sweet 16

After failing to cover against #16 Holy Cross (91-65) as 38.5-point favorites and #8 West Virginia (64-54) as 14.5-point chalk, the Hawkeyes finally covered their first game of the NCAA Tournament with an 89-68 rout of #5 Colorado as 6.5-point favorites. Clark (31.7 PPG, 8.9 RPG, 7.3 RPG) was in distribution mode with 29 points and a season-high-tying 15 assists along with six rebounds, one steal, and one block.

All five Iowa starters finished with at least 11 points led by 15 from junior guard Sydney Affolter. As a team, the Hawkeyes shot 53.8% from the field and 40.9% from three.

Hannah Stuelke, Iowa’s 6’2 sophomore forward, is likely to have the task of guarding Reese in the post for the bulk of Monday’s game. Stuelke (14.0 PPG, 6.8 RPG) has been a beast on the boards the past two games, grabbing 21 rebounds combined along with four blocks.

LSU outrebounded Iowa 37-26 in the title game last season including doubling-up the Hawkeyes on the offensive glass (14-7).

LSU Not the Same Team as Last Year

Though leading scorer Reese (18.7 PPG, 13.2 RPG, 2.3 APG) is back in the fold as a junior, four key players from last year’s championship team either graduated or transfered, including Alexis Morris (15.4 PPG, 4.1 APG), Ladazhia Williams (9.9 PPG, 6.0 RPG), Jasmine Carson (8.8 PPG, 2.3 RPG), and Kateri Poole (4,5 PPG, 2.6 RPG).

Embattled head coach Kim Mulkey added DePaul transfer Aneesah Morrow (16.5 PPG, 9.9 RPG) while bringing in freshman guard Mikaylah Williams (14.4 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 2.9 APG).

LSU advanced to the Elite Eight with a 70-60 win over #14 Rice as 28.5-point favorites, an 83-56 win over #11 Middle Tennessee as 16.5-point chalk, and a 78-69 win over #2 UCLA as three-point favorites, going 2-1 ATS so far in the Tournament.

Reese is averaging 15.3 points and 13.6 rebounds in the three Tournament games, while Flau’jae Johnson (14.7 PPG, 5.5 RPG) has picked up the scoring load, averaging a team-high 19.7 PPG through the three games so far.

Clark has a massive point total of 32.5 O/U, which is 14 points higher than anyone else on the board. Despite failing to lead her team in scoring in the first three games of the Tournament, Reese is listed with the highest point total for LSU at 18.5, plus a game-high rebound total of 12.5.

LSU vs Iowa Prediction

Clark gets all the headlines, but Iowa is more than just its leading scorer. That said, LSU is still the deeper (and bigger) team. The Tigers only loss in the last 14 games came against unbeaten South Carolina (79-72).

This spread and moneyline are a stay-away for me but there are some player props I like. Clark’s point total of 32.5 is too high against an LSU defense that’s held 13 of its last 14 opponents under 70. Stuelke, who’s grabbed 10 and 11 rebounds in her last two games, is going to have to be a monster on the glass again if the Hawkeyes are going to stay competitive on the boards.

LSU vs Iowa picks:

  • Clark under 32.5 points (-105)
  • Stuelke over 6.5 rebounds (-135)
