The over is 5-0 in Iowa’s last 5 Thursday games and the over is 8-2-1 in Iowa’s last 11 games following an ATS win. Michigan is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games following an ATS win. The over is 4-1 in Michigan’s last 5 games. The home team is 5-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

This is a huge game for Michigan as they are fighting to get into the NCAA Tournament. Michigan has been very inconsistent this season but needs to win at least one of their remaining two games in the regular season and one game in the Big Ten Tournament to at least have a shot at the Tourney. Iowa plays almost no defense, so the over is worth a look. Michigan defeated Iowa a few weeks ago by a score of 84-79. I like Michigan to win at home here and I expect them to put up 80+ again.
