Bet on the Big Ten Tournament

Iowa isn’t getting much respect today, but the Hawkeyes are rolling right now. This four game win streak has included a win over Indiana and wins over Wisconsin and Maryland. Indiana isn’t a team you can trust. The Hoosiers have come out flat far too often and been unable to get the big wins when they needed them this year. I will roll with Iowa and the points.
