Hawks Are 3 Point Underdogs This Weekend
Iowa travels to East Lansing this weekend to take on the Michigan State Spartans. Hawkeye Quarterback Nate Stanley enters the game with 12 touchdown passes, the most in the Big Ten and tied for sixth in the nation.
Las Vegas oddsmakers list Michigan State as a 3 point favorite with the over/under at 44.5. If you remember last week, Iowa was a huge 13 point underdog to Penn State. The Hawks lost the game, but covered the spread very easily.
You can watch the game on FOX starting at 3:12 p.m. Iowa leads the series 23-21-2. I see this game much like last week with low scoring and tight defense. I like the Hawks to bounce back in this game with a road win against Michigan State.
My prediction: Nate Stanley will continue to have a hot hand and the Hawks win the game 21-20. Saturday will be the first meeting between the two schools since the 2015 Big Ten Championship Game.......We're all just hoping for a different result!
