College Basketball Betting Trends

Northwestern

The Wildcats are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall. Northwestern is 1-4 ATS in its last five games overall.

Iowa

The Hawkeyes are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Iowa is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games versus the Big Ten. 

Prediction:

The spread is pretty big here, but the Hawkeyes are playing with plenty of confidence and have an elite offense. When guys like Bohannon step up in the scoring department, they can be nearly unbeatable. While Iowa is inconsistent, it seems to be gaining some stability now and I'm going to take my shots on the better team here to cover the spread.
