We have reached week twelve of the college football season which means most games are conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big Ten showdown when the Iowa Hawkeyes make the trip to the Memorial Stadium to take on the Illinois Fighting Illini.
The Hawkeyes have won the last four games played between these two teams.
The Iowa Hawkeyes got off to a fast start to the season, but they come into this game really struggling having lost three games in a row.
They have kept it close in all three games, but they haven’t been able to do enough in the 4th quarter to come out with the victories.
At quarterback Nathan Stanley has been good. but he seems to make mistakes late in games when the team can’t have him making them.
In this game it’s going to be about stopping the running game. So far this year they are only giving up 96 yards per game on the ground and that type of effort needs to continue.
If they can take away the running game, it will shut down the Illini offense and they should have no issue winning this game.
Illinois Fighting Illini
On the other side of this matchup is the Illinois Fighting Illini who haven’t had a good season, but they have still been a fun team to watch this season because of the offense.
In their last game against the Cornhuskers they put up 35 points, but they defense struggled giving up 54 points and that led to the big defeat.
For the Illini they are a run first team and it’s something they will lean on in this game. On the season they are averaging 263.4 points per game on the ground.
The defense also is going to need to be better. If the ywant a chance they are probably going to need to create a few turnovers.

I really don’t like the way the Hawkeyes are playing coming into this game and I think this spread is just a bit too much.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Fighting Illini ATS
I think they will come away with a victory, but the Illini offense will keep this game close enough to get a cover.
