This rivalry game will mean a lot to both teams as they battle for the Heroes Trophy. The Cornhuskers are a win away from qualifying for a bowl game this season. It was three years ago when Nebraska played in their last bowl game, they lost to Tennessee 38-24. Iowa will come into Memorial Stadium pissing excellence as they hit the eight-win mark for the 12th time under Ferentz. The Hawkeyes beat Illinois 19-10 last weekend in a tight one. If looking back to the past gives us any clues on how today's game might look today I believe we have an edge on the Over.
I've been watching the line movement for this total and I'm seeing over 67% of the public betting the Under. The total has trended downward and it seems to me like an over-reaction to the lack off points scored in Iowa's last win against Illinois. The Over has gone 5-1 in their last 6 games. My models and system have 55 points scored in this game so the 44.5 being offered is truly a gem!
Pick: Over 44.5 (-110)
Projected: 30 Iowa 25 Nebraska
🍀Best of luck!
