Wisconsin falls to BYU

Wisconsin was off to a 2-0 start and then slipped up with a 24-21 loss at home to BYU. The Badgers are 0-3 against the spread while going 2-1 with the under. They have hit the under in five of their last seven games as a program.

The Badgers are putting up 33.3 points per game on offense this season while averaging 484.3 yards per game. They are posting 285 rushing yards per game. Jonathan Taylor is leading the way with 515 rushing yards and five touchdowns while Alex Hornibrook has thrown for 595 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Wisconsin is giving up 13.7 points and 275.7 yards per game, including just 145 passing yards per contest.

Iowa off to 3-0 start

The Iowa Hawkeyes are 3-0 on the season thanks to wins over Northern Illinois, Iowa State and Northern Iowa. They have covered the spread in all three games while hitting the under in two of the three games. Iowa has hit the over in five of their last eight games as a program.

The Hawkeyes are playing very well on defense right now, allowing just 8 points and 209 yards per game. Their run defense is near the top of the country, allowing just 42 yards per game. On offense, Iowa is putting up 28 points and 389.3 yards per game. Nate Stanley has thrown for 583 yards and three touchdowns to lead the offense while Toren Young has rushed for 234 yards and two scores.

College Football Betting Trends


Wisconsin has hit the over in six of its last seven games following a failed cover and 5-2 with the over in their last seven road games.


Iowa is 8-3 with the under in its last 11 home games and 4-1 with the over in its last five games following a win.


Iowa and Wisconsin have great defenses and that is why the total is as low as it is. I actually think the Hawkeyes will be able to give Wisconsin a lot of problems on defense. With the game taking place at home, Iowa should be game to hold Wisconsin back. The Badgers should be able to contain Iowa as well. The Hawkeyes don’t have an overpowering offense and I think the points will be very hard to come by in this game.


College Football Prediction: Wisconsin/Iowa Under 43.5
