*Odds via FanDuel as of Saturday morning.

There is a historically profitable betting algorithm developed by the Action Network that has two solid betting edges for this Big Ten contest between Iowa and Illinois.

The algorithm factors in injuries, matchups, weather conditions and more.

This system provides more than 9% edges in betting value for both the spread and moneyline. That means the picks have implied odds that are more than 9% higher than the odds available to you in the markets.

Essentially, the lines currently have a 9% discount across the market.

Over the long run, if you only bet on lines with at least an 9% betting edge, you’re almost assured to make a profit. In the short term, of course, variance is a constraint.

These picks are the second- and third-best college football picks of the day, according to our models.
