Two teams from the Big Ten will be squaring off when the Iowa Hawkeyes visit the Wisconsin Badgers.
Iowa is coming off of a bye week and Wisconsin is coming off of a win.
Wisconsin started off as 2.5 point favorites and that number has gone up to 3. The total has stayed at the low number of 36.5 for a bit.
Iowa has had a good season so far. I would not call them a powerhouse, but I do feel they are a very solid club.
The last game this team played was on October 16th where they lost to Purdue 24-7. That loss was a letdown game after they had beaten Penn State the previous week.
In the loss against the Boilermakers, Spencer Petras was terrible. He was 17/32 for 195 yards and 4 interceptions. Needless to say, he will need to be much better this Saturday.
Tyler Goodson was the leading rusher in the loss two weeks ago, as he had 12 rushes for 68 yards. I am sure he will be called upon a lot against the Badgers.
All year long, the defense has been the biggest strength of this team. I look for this unit to have a very good day against a Wisconsin offense that is not all that powerful.
Wisconsin has been a very inconsistent team so far this year. One week they are impressive and the next week they lay an egg. Iowa will be a big test for them.
The Badgers are coming off of a 30-13 win against Purdue last Saturday. This was a good win for them.
Graham Mertz was not asked to throw the ball a lot in the win last week. He was 5/8 for 52 yards.
Last Saturday was all about the running game. Chez Mellusi ran the ball 27 times for 149 yards. Another key runner was Braleon Allen who had 12 carries for 140 yards.
Similar to Iowa, the Wisconsin defense has been a big strength of their program. With two good defenses going at it, I could see Saturday being a low-scoring affair.

This game may not be getting a lot of attention, but I think it has the chance to be a very good one.

4* Free Week 9 NCAA Betting Pick:
If you like seeing a lot of offense, this is probably not the game to tune in to.
Given how strong this both of these defenses are, I do not see either team scoring a lot. It makes sense why the over/under was set at such a low total.
I feel that both teams can move the ball, but I do not think there will be a lot of touchdowns. I look for Iowa to keep this thing close and it would not shock me if they won outright.
I like the Hawkeyes getting the points in this one.
