The over is 8-1-2 in Oregon’s last 11 neutral site games. The over is 35-17-1 in Oregon’s last 53 games overall. The over is 8-0 in Iowa’s last eight non-conference games. The  under is 9-3 in Iowa’s last 12 games overall. 

Iowa is the better team and they are going to have no issue getting the job done in this game. Iowa is going to run up the score, Oregon is going to have no answer, and that will lead to Iowa coming away with a win and a cover of the spread. Back Iowa against the spread.
