Northwestern vs Iowa Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
Over the past five games, Northwestern has played a lot of teams close. Three of their last four losses have come by single digits. Two of those were against solid ranked Illinois and Purdue teams. Northwestern has always been a pesky team that is tough to put away which makes betting on either side of the spread dicey.
The Wildcats don’t have much of a defense as they give up just over 68 points per game. While that would lead to the belief that this matchup would be high scoring, I would bet on the under to cash. Northwestern has struggled to score as of late against solid competition and Iowa is as solid as any in the Big Ten recently.
