Interesting Stats/Facts:

  • Iowa is 4-1 on the road this season with their lone loss coming last Saturday in Happy Valley by six points to a strong Penn State team.
  • Purdue is 2-3 at home, but one of those two wins came over then-No. 2 Ohio State by 29 points.
  • The Hawkeyes are an impressive 6-2 against the spread on the season, while the Boilermakers are just one game behind at 5-3 ATS. 


Best Bets:

  • Iowa: Moneyline (+125) – The Hawkeyes are a strong road team, winning four of the last five in West Lafayette against Purdue. Plus, none of the previous 10 matchups in this series have been decided by fewer than three points, so there's a chance the 2.5-point line may be an irrelevant handicap by the final whistle. 
  • Over 51 Total Points (-110) – The 2018 Hawkeyes are one of the more explosive Iowa offenses we've seen in recent years, and the same goes for this year's Purdue offense. Not to mention, the last meeting between these two in West Lafayette saw 84 total points scored.
