Iowa vs. Penn State Pick

Will Iowa and Penn State hit the over in Saturday’s Big Ten matchup?

Can No. 12 Penn State build on its current win streak and keep the Iowa offense in check when they meet on Saturday at 7:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Penn State is favored at home in this game, as the Nittany Lions are getting odds of -7.5 points against Iowa. The over/under total for the game has been set at 53 points. Penn State has won two straight over Iowa and the two have hit the under in five of their last seven meetings.

Iowa is coming off a 17-9 loss at home to Wisconsin two weeks ago. The Hawkeyes are now 5-3 on the season and 3-2 in the Big Ten. They are also 5-3 with the under. Iowa hasn’t had much of an offense, averaging just 348.1 yards per game this season. They have a sound running game, as Akrum Wadley and LeShun Daniels Jr. have combined for 1,260 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. C.J. Beathard has thrown for 1,380 yards and 11 touchdowns with just four interceptions. Defensively, Iowa is giving up 18.9 points per game but allowing 377.4 yards per contest. They have struggled somewhat to stop the run, allowing 153.8 yards per game.

Bet on Iowa vs. Penn State

Penn State is on a roll right now, having won four straight to improve to 6-2 on the year and 4-1 in the Big Ten. The Nittany Lions are 6-2 with the over this season as well. The team is now averaging 33.6 points and 392 yards per game on offense. They also have a sound run game behind Saquon Barkley, who has run for 888 yards and 10 touchdowns. Trace McSorley has thrown for 1,818 yards and 12 touchdowns and just three interceptions as well.

Penn State has had a nice swing in offense and now faces a stingy Iowa team. Penn State has held its last four opponents to 26 points or less and Iowa has held all but two teams to 21 points or less this year. While Penn State has been improved on offense lately, I don’t expect it to continue against Iowa. The Hawkeyes are likely to struggle to score as well, as they just don’t have the consistency.
