Hawkeyes down Buckeyes

The Hawkeyes established a 46-35 halftime advantage en route to the victory. Luka Garza led Iowa with 24 points on 9-of-15 shooting including 2-of-7 from 3-point distance plus 4-of-9 at the free throw line. He also notched six rebounds and four assists.

College Basketball Betting Trends


The Hawkeyes are 11-4-3 ATS in their last 18 games overall. Iowa is 2-5 ATS in its last seven Tuesday games.

Michigan State

The Spartans are 7-2 ATS in their last nine home games. Michigan State is 0-5 ATS in its last five Tuesday games.


Iowa is no pushover and this spread seems a little too wide for my comfort. The Spartans are very talented and capable of blowing any team out of the water, but are also wildly inconsistent and still searching for more out of key role players. Michigan State has lost its last two home games straight up, so I'll gladly take the points with the Hawkeyes in this spot.
