Iowa vs Rutgers Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks for Big Ten Tournament
In the previous matchup between these two teams this season, the Scarlet Knights pulled off the upset in one of the ugliest contests in all of college basketball this year. Rutgers pulled off a 48-46 win in a game where no team shot better than 31% from the field or 22% from deep.
Rutgers are a heck of a defensive team. Iowa will also see some regression from their 112 point performance against Northwestern yesterday too. With that in mind, Rutgers barely pulled off the win at home in their last meeting. Iowa is clearly feeling it offensively while Rutgers is in uncharted territory with actual expectations now. Betting on a team with no experience under pressure is risky, especially when they play an offense as good as Iowa’s. Take Iowa to cover the spread.
