Iowa @ Wisconsin (-3, 36.5)

Bettors love the ‘over’ in this old-school clash of Big Ten programs.

We’ve collected close to 7,000 tickets on this game as of Friday afternoon, which is the third-most of any Power 5 game on the Week 9 slate.

More than 80% of the money is on the over 36.5, which also took in 63% of the total tickets.

It’ll be the lowest total of the 2021 season and the shortest since 2019 – which, naturally, featured Iowa vs. Wisconsin.

The Hawkeyes have gone 5-2 to the under this year, while the Badgers are 4-3. Neither team has played in a game with a total that closed 56 or higher this season.

Michigan @ Michigan State (+4, 50.5)

To say the market is interested in this battle of undefeated clubs would be an understatement: It’s the only game with more than 10,000 tickets on our board ahead of Saturday.

And the public loves Michigan State.

The home squad’s garnering 61% of the tickets and 68% of the overall handle.

The state of Michigan in particular has piled on the Spartans this week. Caesars, DraftKings, PointsBet and BetMGM reported 69% or more the tickets on Michigan State as of Friday.

Sparty was awesome in its previous two games as an underdog this season, outscoring opponents 76-38.
