Despite the fact that Iowa has burned me on multiple occasions this season, I’m not going to keep that from passing up value when I see it. The Hawkeyes haven’t played up to their potential in Big Ten play, where they have started out 0-5. However, the schedule hasn’t exactly been easy. The one game they should have won was at home against Penn State, which they lost 73-77. The other four were road games against Indiana and Maryland and home losses to two of the best teams in the league in Ohio State and Michigan. This is put up or shut up for a Iowa team that a lot of people had pegged to finish in the top half. Illinois is a team that they can definitely get right against. The Fighting Illini are also winless in Big Ten play at 0-4. I think worse case here this game goes down to the wire with Iowa losing by just a few points, though I really like their chances of pulling off the upset and winning outright. Give me the Hawkeyes +5!
