Will Iowa-ISU be high-scoring for bettors?
Tonight's rivalry game between Iowa and Iowa State at 7:30PM ET should be a high-scoring affair for bettors.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the over/under for tonight's game is sitting at 153 points while the Cyclones are a 7.5-point home favorite versus the Hawkeyes. ISU is 7-0 on the year and 4-1 against the spread in lined games, while Iowa is 7-2 straight up and 3-3 ATS.
The attention tonight will be on All-American candidate George Niang, who is ISU's leading scorer. He averages 18.6 points per game but he has plenty of help thanks to Monte Morris (14.9 points per game), Abdel Nader (14.6), Jameel McKay (13.9) and Nazareth Mitrou-Long (12.9). Iowa, meanwhile, is led by Jarrod Uthoff, who averages 18.2 points per game and scored 27 points in 23 minutes in Monday's win over Western Illinois.
The over is a perfect 7-0 in the last seven meetings between these two teams and is 12-3-1 in the Cyclones' last 16 games versus Big Ten opponents. The over is also 5-2 in the Hawkeyes' last seven games overall and 7-2 in their last 10 games versus Big 12 foes.
