Iowa vs. Illinois College Basketball Prediction

The home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams and Illinois is 3-1-1 against the number in its last five games versus an opponent with a winning record, but Iowa is 15-6 against the spread in its last 21 games overall and 11-5 ATS in its last 16 games versus a foe with a winning record. Thus, I don’t want to mess with this spread.

The over, however, is 5-1 in the Hawkeyes’ last six road games, is 5-2 in their last seven games as an underdog and has cashed in six of their last eight games as a road dog. The over is also 5-1 in Iowa’s last six road contests when playing a team with a winning home record and is 9-3-1 in the Fighting Illini’s last 13 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600.
