The Michigan State Spartans and Iowa Hawkeyes face off on Tuesday in a Big Ten college basketball showdown at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was Iowa that won 88-58. 

Michigan State comes into this game with an 18-8 record overall and they have gone 13-12-1 against the spread. The record has been a bit deceiving for this team, and they have been a big disappointment this season. The Spartans have lost two games in a row and they have looked bad in both games. Two games ago against Penn State, they only scored 58 points and that led to the four point defeat. Michigan State is averaging 72.8 points while their defense is giving up 66.6 points per game. Gabe Brown has been the top player for Michigan State averaging 11.8 points while shooting 41 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Iowa Hawkeyes who sit with an 18-8 record overall and they have gone 15-11 against the spread. Iowa has been a bit inconsistent but they are coming off a big win. Iowa’s defense only gave up 65 points, and that was enough to pull off the victory. Iowa is averaging 83.5 points while their defense is giving up 71.5 points per game. Keegan Murray has been the top player for Iowa averaging 23.4 points while shooting 56.1 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from behind the three point line.

Michigan State is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games. Iowa is 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games against a team with a winning road percentage of greater than 60 percent. The under is 4-0 in the Spartans last four games played on Tuesday. The over is 7-1 in Iowa’s last eight home games against a team with a winning road record. 

Michigan State has failed to cover spreads coming into this game and it’s going to be no different in this game. Look for the Spartans defense to struggle and that will be the difference as Iowa gets the job done. Back Iowa against the spread.
