Iowa has been a mess, losing four of their last five and failing to cover in five straight. It all started with the loss at Indiana and Iowa hasn’t been the same since. They lost as a favorite at Ohio State, as a favorite at home against Wisconsin and as a favorite at Penn State. They also only beat Minnesota by four points at home. Indiana has won three straight and can lock up the Big Ten regular season title with a win. The Hoosiers are coming off a 74-47 win at Illinois and with everything that is at stake, Indiana should have a motivated effort tonight. Iowa just is too risky to play right now, especially as a favorite against a solid Indiana team.
