Northwestern vs. Iowa College Basketball Prediction

The favorite is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams and the Hawkeyes are 20-4-2 against the number in their last 26 home games. However, the Wildcats are 5-1 against the number in their last six games overall and have covered in four of their last five games as an underdog, so I’m not touching the side in tonight’s matchup.

The total offers bettors more value. The over is 7-3 in Northwestern’s last 10 games as an underdog and has cashed in nine of the Wildcats’ last 13 games overall. The over is also 10-1 in the Hawkeyes’ last 11 games overall, is 8-1 in their last nine games as a favorite and has cashed in seven of their last eight home games.
