An emergency bill to legalize sports wagering within Washington state’s Native American tribal casinos is now one step from a full Senate vote on sending it to the governor’s office. The Washington Senate’s Labor and Commerce Committee voted on Monday 5-2 to move EHB 2638 on to a fiscal review. The bill is expected to pass and then move on to a full Senate vote in time before the end of the current legislative session, which is March 12.
The bill has already passed in the House earlier this month. If it makes its way through a full Senate vote, the bill will move to Governor Jay Inslee’s desk for a signature.

TCU vs Iowa State (-2.5) – 7:00 PM
The TCU Horned Frogs (15-12) take on the Iowa State Cyclones (11-16) in a battle between two teams near the bottom of the Big 12. TCU is coming off of an upset of #17 West Virginia 67-60 on Saturday. Iowa State has now lost its last two games after falling to Texas Tech 87-57 on Saturday.
TCU has been an offensive nightmare this season. The Horned Frogs are scoring just 65.5 points per game (315th). Their shooting numbers aren’t much better as they are 261st in FG%, 162nd in 3PT% and 336th in FT%. The Horned Frogs’ defense is the reason for their moderate success this season. However, while they do allow the 45th-fewest points per game, they have allowed high shooting percentages to their opponents. TCU is 203rd in opponent FG% and they are one of the worst teams at defending the three, ranking 325th.
Iowa State’s numbers haven’t been anything to be excited about either, which is evident in their sub .500 record. The Cyclones offense is decent as they are scoring 73.1 points per game (121st). While they are a solid free-throw shooting team (85th), they are about average in FG% (153rd) and terrible from three (228th). The Cyclones defense has been a disaster all season. They are 283rd in points allowed per game. Opponents have been shooting lights out against them most of the season as their defense is 281st in opponent FG% and 324th in opponent 3PT%.
TCU did have an impressive win in their last game against West Virginia, but that was at home. On the road, the Horned Frogs are just 1-7. Neither one of these teams is anything special. However, TCU has a terrible offense and relies on its defense which only allows a low point total because of their slow tempo. Iowa State plays at a fast tempo and that will cause problems for the TCU defense. The Cyclones have had one of the toughest schedules in the country and are better than their record would suggest. I like the Cyclones to get a comfortable win tonight at home and the formula agrees as it has Iowa State taking this one 71-64.
