Hawkeyes picking up steam

Iowa has won four of its last five games coming into this week, including a 19-10 win at home over Illinois last Saturday. The Hawkeyes are now 8-3 on the year, 5-3 in the Big Ten, 5-6 against the spread and 8-2-1 with the under.

The Hawkeyes remain one of the stronger defensive teams in the country, as they are allowing just 12.2 points and 306.5 yards per game. Kristian Welch is leading the defense with 70 tackles and three sacks. Offensively, Iowa is averaging 23.5 points and 373.9 yards per contest. Nate Stanley has thrown for 2,639 yards and 14 touchdowns to lead the offense while Ihmir Smith-Marsette is the leading receiver with 41 catches for 654 yards and four touchdowns. Iowa has three rushers with over 400 yards and a combined eight touchdowns.

Nebraska ends slide

It has been a disappointing season for Nebraska, but the Cornhuskers can still become bowl eligible with a win on Friday. Nebraska put an end to a four-game losing streak last weekend with a 54-7 victory at Maryland. The Huskers are now 5-6 on the season, 3-5 in the Big Ten, 2-9 against the spread and 6-5 with the under.

Nebraska hasn’t been quite the offense many were expecting the year. The Huskers are averaging just 28.4 points and 429.6 yards per game on offense. Defensively, Nebraska is giving up 27.8 points and 395.4 yards per game. Adrian Martinez has thrown for 1,906 yards and 10 touchdowns, but has eight interceptions. He has rushed for 582 yards and seven scores. Dedrick Mills is the leading rusher with 651 yards and 10 touchdowns while JD Spielman is the leading receiver with 46 catches for 864 yards and four scores. Khalil Davis is leading the defense with 40 tackles and eight sacks.

College Football Betting Trends

Iowa

The Hawkeyes have hit the over in four straight Friday games, but have hit the under in seven of their last eight conference games.

Nebraska

The Cornhuskers are 8-3-1 with the over in their last 12 games in November, but 5-2 with the under in their last seven home games.

Prediction:

These two have hit the over in three straight meetings and five of their last six encounters. Iowa’s defense has been the mainstay of any of the four units you will see in this game. The Hawkeyes haven’t given up more than 24 points in any game and less than 20 in all but two. Nebraska has players on offense, but the Cornhuskers have struggled with physical defensive teams and Iowa certainly fits that bill. While the Nebraska defense isn’t great, Iowa has struggled to score on the road. They haven’t put up more than 22 points in a road game. I just can’t see many points getting scored in this one.
