The line may suggest otherwise but Iowa vs. Michigan should be a great game.  This is for the Big Ten title. 


Michigan opened as a -23 favorite.  This one has dipped as low as -21.5 but was mostly sitting at -22 across the board.  Folks were still eating up the Wolverines at around a 65% clip.

Using the current spread, Iowa is 4-1 Against The Spread in the last five meetings.  Michigan has won the last three outright while the Hawkeyes won the two previous games.

BetUS host Gary Segars, and expert handicappers Kyle Hunter and Parker Fleming preview the College Football BIG10 Championship game between Michigan and Iowa. They'll go over the best value College Football odds available and betting trends and share their College Football expert predictions, picks and best bets.

Michigan may be undefeated but Iowa are no slouches as they've lost just two games this season, one by just two points (against Minnesota).  Yes they were blown out by Penn State on September 23.

“We love that narrative of being the underdog,” Iowa defensive end Evans said. “I don’t think anybody thought we were going to be in this situation after we lost 31-0 at Penn State. I said, ‘You know, we still have all of our goals in front of us. We can still win the Big Ten West and we can win the Big Ten championship.’ I know a lot of people kind of laughed at that, so we love being the underdog.”
