The Iowa offense is averaging 17.2 points per game with 159.2 passing yards per game and 103.6 rushing yards per game.

The Iowa defense is allowing 14.3 points per game and 264.4 yards per game.

Wisconsin is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record. The over is 6-1 in Wisconsin’s last 7 games. Iowa is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The under is 4-1 in Iowa’s last 5 home games. The under is 3-1-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Iowa.

Both of these teams come into this game still holding out hope that they can claim a share of the Big Ten West title. Wisconsin is coming off of two nice wins, but will be on the road. Iowa has played much better offensively in their last two games and has a great defense. I like Iowa at home behind that stout defense.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
