Iowa was once listed as a 1 seed for Joe Lunardi back in January, but the Hawkeyes hit a real rough patch toward the end of the regular season, losing six of their last eight while going 1-7 against the spread. It could be a situation where Iowa just needs some fresh opponents, but they are just 2-11 ATS in their last 13 on a neutral floor and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 NCAA Tournament games. Temple, on the other, hand is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 on a neutral site and 9-5 ATS as an underdog. Temple should be able to keep this interesting and possibly pull off the upset win.
