Betting Odds: Michigan Wolverines at Iowa Hawkeyes
- Spread: Michigan -4.5
- Over/Under: 143.5
- Time: 7 p.m. ET
- TV: Fox Sports 1
The Wolverines (11-10 against the spread) have covered in six of their past eight contests while the Hawkeyes (10-11 ATS) have failed to tally a cover in consecutive games after going 5-0 ATS in their previous five games.
Fran McCaffrey’s bunch has been reeling over their past two games, but regression was expected.
Iowa has let up the highest 2-point percentage (56.1%) in league play, and that will likely continue against a Michigan team with the third-highest percentage (51.4%) in that department in their Big Ten games.
