The Hawkeyes are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on the road. The Huskies are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games, however, are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 November games.
This is a low total, however, I can’t trust either of these offenses as the Hawkeyes have only been able to put up 14 points over their last two games with Northeastern comes into this game ranked 119th in scoring offense. I think there is just as good as a chance for as many defensive TD’s in this game as we could see on the offensive end as because of that, I’m rolling with the Under. Good Luck!
