Wisconsin vs. Iowa Free Pick
No. 8 Iowa looks to stay perfect at home tonight when it hosts Wisconsin at 9PM ET. Can the Hawkeyes not only win, but cover as well?
According to oddsmakers at RealBets Iowa is the favorite at home tonight, as the Hawkeyes are getting odds of -8 points against Wisconsin. The over/under total for the game has been set at 138 points.
Iowa is 20-6 on the season, 11-3 in the Big Ten, 13-0 at home and 13-10 against the spread. Wisconsin is 17-10 overall, 9-5 in the Big Ten, 4-4 on the road and 13-14 against the spread. Wisconsin has won the last five games in this series, covering the spread in three straight. However, this is the first meeting of the season between the two. These two have also hit the over in seven of their last eight meetings.
The Badgers have won eight of their last nine games, including three wins on the road. In that span they are 7-2 against the spread, but both failed covers came in their last two games. Iowa is just 1-2 in its last three and has failed to cover in three straight. However, the Hawkeyes haven’t lost at home and have covered in 7 of 10 games at home throughout the season. Coming off a stunning road loss to Penn State last week, Iowa should be motivated for a big game at home. The Hawkeyes need a win to keep pace with Indiana in the Big Ten race and a matchup at home with the Hoosiers looms next week. Expect the Hawkeyes to send a message to Wisconsin tonight.
