College Football Betting Trends
Iowa has hit the over in its last four road games and in five of its last six Big Ten games.
Indiana is 7-2 with the under in its last nine games following a loss and 5-1 with the under in its last six games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game.
These two have hit the over in eight of their last 10 meetings. Iowa has been putting up a fair amount of offense this year despite being known for being a ball-control offense. They had 48 on the road against Minnesota last week and should move the ball well on Indiana. The Hoosiers aren’t a defense that is going to really lock up an opponent. Offensively, Indiana should be capable of finding some scores of their own. Iowa is a strong defense, but has allowed at least 14 points in its last three.
