Wisconsin is coming off an 84-74 loss at Michigan State for its fourth loss in five games. The Badgers now sit at 22-7 on the season and 11-5 in the Big Ten. Wisconsin is 1-6 against the spread in its last seven games to fall to 12-14 ATS on the season. Wisconsin is scoring 73.1 points per game on offense this season while allowing 62.1 on defense. When at home, the Badgers put up 77.1 points per game on offense while allowing just 56.1 on defense. Ethan Happ is averaging 14.1 points and 9 rebounds per game to lead the team while Nigel Hayes is adding 13.7 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest.

Iowa has won two straight to improve to 16-13 on the season and 8-8 in the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes have covered the spread in their last two as well to move to 11-14-1 against the spread on the season. Iowa is averaging 80.6 points per game on offense while allowing 77.7 on defense. When on the road, Iowa is only scoring 74.9 points per game while giving up 83.2 on defense. Peter Jok is leading the team with 20.6 points and 6 rebounds per game while Tyler Cook is adding 12.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Iowa vs. Wisconsin

Iowa looked impressive in its road trip to Maryland, another team currently struggling. The Hawkeyes also went to OT in their trip to Minnesota, one of the hottest teams in the country. While Wisconsin has been winning consistently at home, winning by big margins hasn’t been the case. Also, over their last five games, the Badgers are putting up only 67 points per game and allowing 71.4. My gut says go with Iowa to cover the spread today.
