NCAA Basketball Iowa Hawkeyes vs Northwestern Wildcats: Odds, Tips and Predictions 03/02/24

Basketball Betting Tips Β· - Β·

Publish Date: 03/02/2024
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Chris Collins has done a tremendous job of coaching this Northwestern Wildcats team. They sit in good position for making the NCAA Tournament, but need to stack another win or two to be safely in the tournament. The Hawkeyes after a slow start to the season are coming on strong at the right time and a road win at Northwestern would be a huge notch in their belt as they try to get into the mix for the NCAA Tournament. This is a massive game in the Big Ten with March Madness ramifications.

Odds Iowa vs Northwestern

  • Point Spread: Northwestern -3.5
  • Moneyline Iowa +135
  • Moneyline Northwestern -160
  • Over/Under 152.5

These odds were updated at 9 am EST on 03/02/24; the odds came from Draft Kings.

The spread on this game favors the Wildcats, the reason they are favored is because they are the home team and the entire Big Ten has struggled on the road this season. Iowa has played better than Northwestern as of late and that gives this game great value.

Our Best Pick: Iowa to Cover

Iowa should easily exploit Northwestern, as their offense should score frequently on this road trip.

The Hawkeyes struggle to defend the perimeter and rebound on defense, yet their offense more than makes up for this deficit. Furthermore, their rotation depth allows them to outscore the Cats significantly.

Northwestern has had an impressive season, but eventually their luck must run out. I have every confidence they will bring their A-game when the pressure mounts at Welsh-Ryan Arena and the Hawkeyes will put themselves in the March Madness conversation..

Iowa vs Northwestern Moneyline

The value in this money line is to bet the Hawkeyes straight up to win on the road. Northwestern is missing Ty berry the res of the season and Iowa has played well as of late including winning a week ago at Michigan State. Hammer the Hawkeyes on the money line.

Iowa vs Northwestern Over/Under Analysis

These teams can both shoot from the outside and while Northwestern is a better defensive team, neither one defends well. Iowa will score in the eighties and while Northwestern has little depth they do have the guys who can get hot from the outside.

Iowa vs Northwestern Spread Analysis

I think this spread is wrong, I think Iowa since Northwestern lost Berry has the better team. I know the Wildcats are at home and have the better coaching, but the Hawkeyes have played as well as anybody offensively over the last month. The Wildcats are the favorites in this game because they are at home.

Conclusion

The Northwestern Wildcats will have a long afternoon battling a much-improved Iowa Hawkeyes team. The Wildcats will not have the fire power to win this game and I look for Iowa to slowly pull away and get a vital win. Iowa 84Β  Northwestern 77.
