LINE - 1-15 in conference Northwestern is a 1.5 favorite at home / 115 is the over and under
By all intents and purposes Iowa should have lost this game in Carver last time out. They escaped in one of the ugliest games I have watched in a long time. A looooong time.
I really don't want to get into the keys of the game, analysis, etc... The bottom line is whether or not this team cares enough to show up. They've regressed as of late and you can strategize all you want, but if you don't have the killer instinct, you aren't going to get it done. This team doesn't have the talent to have an off-night.
I want to pick Iowa in this game, but I just haven't seen the right thing for a while.
Iowa - 47
Northwestern - 52
Prove me wrong, Hawks.
