Iowa at Michigan odds, lines, picks and predictions


Iowa 74, Michigan 72

Money line

Slow-tempo Michigan is a betting fade against quick teams like Iowa. The Hawkeyes have played well recently despite playing a lesser schedule of late than UM.

The Hawkeyes figure to come out on top in the turnover battle and in the exchange from beyond the arc. In the first game, Iowa was held to a season-low-tying 4 triples. Iowa has been an excellent offensive team on the road, and the HAWKEYES (+115) play is a likable one in this revenge spot.

Against the spread

The Wolverines are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games following an ATS win.

BACK THE HAWKEYES +2.5 (-120).


Game 1 hit the Over with 13.5 points to spare. Look for some push-back on the pace here. The UNDER 154.5 (-107) has value, with Iowa likely keeping the Wolverines more in check and in a contest with fewer possessions.
