The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Tuesday, Nov. 29, including an ACC/Big Ten Challenge matchup between the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Iowa Hawkeyes.

Georgia Tech snapped a two-game losing skid in its last outing, landing an 80-61 victory over North Alabama on Saturday. Unfortunately, Iowa didn't have much success over the weekend, picking up a 79-66 loss to TCU on the road.

Can Georgia Tech continue its winning ways in Iowa City? Or will Iowa find a way to bounce back from its first loss of the campaign?

Georgia Tech vs Iowa Prediction & Pick

Iowa enters this tilt with one of the best offenses in the nation, averaging 87.3 points per game (No. 7). The Hawkeyes are also 3-0 straight up at home and a big part behind that success has been their averaging 11.3 threes on 41.5% accuracy at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

If Iowa can start hitting their shots from range, it might be too hard for Georgia Tech to keep things close. Though the Yellow Jackets have a solid perimeter defense, they can't score three-pointers to save their lives, averaging 5.2 threes (No. 322) on 28.6% shooting (T-No. 311).

The Hawkeyes also own the third-best turnovers per possession rating (12.5%) in all of college basketball. I expect them to hold on to the ball for the majority of the game en route to picking up their sixth consecutive victory against an ACC opponent.

Final Score Prediction: Iowa: 79 | Georgia Tech: 63

Georgia Tech vs Iowa Best Bet

Viewers better buckle up for a low-scoring affair tonight. After all, both sides are only allowing a combined 132.1 PPG. On top of that, the total has gone under in each of Georgia Tech's last six games, along with six of Iowa's last eight.

With both sides having a lot to prove at the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, expect a lower total than what oddsmakers predict.
