OVER Trending Between Iowa & Nebraska

Iowa NCAA Football

Iowa finally got the respect it deserves in the rankings this week, but they have been silently killing it at the betting window too with the OVER going 5-1 in the Hawkeyes’ past six games. Iowa will visit the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Friday, who have gone OVER in four of their past five.

Shark Bites
  • Iowa is 1-5 SU in their past six games against Nebraska.
  • Quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. threw four touchdowns against Iowa last season.
  • Nebraska is 1-3 ATS in their last four games following a win.

You wouldn’t know it from their reactions on the field, but Iowa clinched the Big Ten West last week and a spot in the Big Ten championship with a 40-20 victory over Purdue. The Hawkeyes, who are probably the most doubted team in college football this season, have been great at keeping the ball secure as quarterback C.J. Beathard has not thrown a pick in four games.

Nebraska is coming off a bye and will relish in the role of spoiler as a single Iowa loss will likely knock them out of the playoffs. The Cornhuskers have won their past two games, one of which was against Michigan State.
