Iowa Hawkeyes Football: Still Getting 75 Percent of the Action

The Iowa Hawkeyes football team is in the spotlight this weekend thanks to an incredible number of bets coming in on the +2 underdog.  They face Arizona U later Saturday night. 

“The bookmakers will get crushed should Arizona win this one by more than 2 points,” said Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com. 

At one point during the week, Iowa was getting more than 85 percent of the betting action here.

Arizona may have a tough time with Iowa, ESPN.com suggests.

While the Hawkeyes' offense has surprised, it is their defense that's their calling card. That defense, No. 9 in the country, faces a test in Arizona and QB Nick Foles. Foles completed 83 percent of his passes as the Wildcats scored 93 in their first two games.

The Scouts.com Edge provides yet another glimpse into why the Iowa Hawkeyes football team should come out of this one victorious:

A lot has changed for these teams since they met last season but Iowa will again control the clock with a commitment to a ground game that will keep the offense on schedule, set up the play-action package and ultimately wear down the Wildcats' defense over the course of the game. In addition, Stanzi is managing the offense well and should continue to do so in his first road start this year. He is an experienced leader who can handle the adversity and he has the supporting cast of skill players to take what the coverage gives him.

While Iowa may be getting all the action, Arizona is now the -2 point favorite after opening as a +1 ½ point dog. 

“Oddsmakers are encouraging action to come in on Iowa it would seem” suggests Shapiro. 

Iowa beat Arizona at home by 10 points last year.

The Hawkeyes have some very impressive stats going in their favor.

They are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a winning home record, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games, 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.

Iowa is also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win, 13-3 ATS in their last 16 road games., 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game and 12-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
