The Iowa Hawkeyes and Nebraska Cornhuskers face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln. Check out our Iowa vs Nebraska Prediction.

Iowa Continues to Win

Iowa hasn’t really been impressive this season in terms of stats or how the product looks, but they still with a 9-1 record overall. In the last game, Iowa’s offense again looked awful and they were able to secure the 15-13 victory. Deacon Hill isn’t the answer for Iowa and he completed 19 of his 29 passes for 167 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Iowa is averaging 18.5 points while their defense is giving up 12.4 points per game. The defense is ranked 3rd in the league and they are going to need to need the defense to step up again here. Defensive back Cooper DeJean is dealing with a leg injury and he’s out for the season. 

Iowa Betting Trends

  • Iowa has won 18 of its last 19 November games against non-AP-ranked teams.
  • Iowa has covered the spread in each of its last five November games as an underdog.
  • Each of Iowa's last six games against conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Can Nebraska Become Bowl Eligible?

Nebraska has had three straight chances to make a bowl game, and all they have done is lose each of the free games. In the last game against Wisconsin, they only scored three points in the second half and that led to the defeat. This offense has also been inconsistent, and they really can’t be trusted. Chubba Hubbard completed 15 of his 23 passes for 169 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Nebraska on the season is averaging 18.7 points while their defense is giving up 18.7 points per game. In this game, Nebraska is going to need to find a way to get the offense going. There was so much hope for this Nebraska team, but if they lose, maybe nothing has changed at Nebraska. 

Nebraska Betting Trends

  • Nebraska has lost each of its last 11 games against AP-ranked teams at Memorial Stadium.
  • The underdog has covered the spread in each of the last five games between Iowa and Nebraska.
  • Six of the last seven November games between Iowa and Nebraska have gone OVER the total points line.

Shane’s Free Pick

Iowa has done a good job of setting football back 100 years with their offense and I expect much of the same here. Nebraska is averaging only 18,7 points while Iowa is averaging 18.5 points. Hubbard and Hill are both going to have terrible games under center again here, and that is going to be the difference here. This game is going to have issues getting to even 20 points. Back the under. Even at such a low total, this is one of the stronger plays of the weekend. 

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