Iowa is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games. The under is 9-1 in Iowa’s last 10 road games.

This will be an interesting game between two teams that like to play different styles. Iowa likes to run up and down the court and is averaging about 157 points in their games, while Wisconsin slows the tempo down and only averages about 133 points in their games. Wisconsin is at home and will be full of confidence after beating #3 ranked Purdue. I like the Badgers to win.
