The Rutgers vs. Iowa over/under in Week 4 is so low that there are four games on the college football slate with a point total expected to double up that of the Scarlet Knights and Hawkeyes.

If you're fairly new to betting, welcome to Big Ten football. If you've been around the block, you probably haven't seen a total like this since the NFL a la 2007.

The Rutgers vs. Iowa over/under opened 35.5 and — if you can believe it — has been tumbling.

We've seen the total dip to 34 and 33.5's are also popping up on our Week 4 college football odds board.

For those of you keeping score, 34 is basically five touchdowns to cash an over — or if you're Rutgers and Iowa … two touchdowns, five safeties, three field goals and a blocked extra-point attempt returned to the house.

This Big Ten clash deserves a spot in football lore and we've found a place to stash it, as it's shaping up to be one of the lowest betting totals Action Network's ever tracked.

Also: Nearly 90% of the public is already betting one direction.

Rutgers vs. Iowa Over/Under

All it takes is perhaps one more slab of smart money to send this total into the history books.

Literally: A half-point move would suffice.

No Iowa game has produced more than 27 combined points this season and the Hawkeyes are naturally 3-0 to the under.

Iowa's offense has been non-existent, ranking bottom-10 nationally in both Pass and Rush Success, as well as Line Yards.

Rutgers, meanwhile, has gone under the total in five of its previous six games against FBS opponents.

The Big Ten tilt also features two of the top-six tackling teams in the country.

Rutgers vs. Iowa Betting Splits

Believe it or not, this entire bit gets even better.

Among the Week 4 college football games in Action Network's public betting database with at least 4,000 wagers, Rutgers vs. Iowa is the second-most lopsided total.

As of Friday morning, 87% of public bettors are on the under, earning the right to yell out, "alright, big stop here!" at the TV on every offensive possession Saturday.
