Purdue vs. Iowa Free Pick
Iowa will attempt to stay in the top 5 of the college football playoff rankings when it hosts Purdue today at 12:00PM ET in what should be a relatively low-scoring game.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Hawkeyes are 23.5-point home favorites versus the Boilermakers while the over/under is currently sitting at 57 points. While the total hasn't seen any movement, Iowa opened as a 19.5-point favorite before the line climbed to 23.
Purdue enters play tonight with a 2-8 record (0-4 on the road) and is 5-5 against the spread (3-1 ATS on the road). Iowa, meanwhile, is a perfect 10-0 straight up (6-0 at home) and is 6-4 against the spread (2-4 ATS at home).
The Hawkeyes have scored 30 points or more in four straight Big Ten games and while they may reach that mile marker again today, the Boilermakers will have trouble keeping pace. After allowing season highs in points and yards last week, look for Iowa to bounce back and keep Purdue in check. The Hawkeyes are tied for 16th in the nation in points allowed (18.4) and are 15th in yards allowed (314.2). They won't have many issues slowing down a Purdue offense that ranks 101st in total yards per game (353.2) and 97th in points scored (24.5).
