Minnesota is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The over is 6-1 in Minnesota’s last 7 games. Iowa is 11-3 ATS in their last 14 Sunday games and 33-16-3 ATS in their last 52 home games. The over is 19-7-1 ATS in Iowa’s last 27 games. The home team is 7-2 ATS in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.

Iowa typically doesn’t have any issues scoring the basketball, but does struggle to get stops on defense. Minnesota is better on the defensive end, but Iowa has the rebounding edge. Iowa defeated Minnesota 81-71 in their first meeting. Both of these teams have struggled in recent games, but Iowa has more talent and the home court advantage, so I am taking the Hawkeyes in this game.
