Point Spread, Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Indiana Hoosiers

Bet $1, Win $100 if Luke Garza scores a point against Indiana – Net BetMGM bettors – Bet Now (Iowa only)

Two teams heading in opposite directions will face off Thursday night in Iowa City. Iowa (KenPom #3) has won its last five Big Ten conference games, with four of the five wins by double-digits. The Hawkeyes most recently defeated Northwestern 96-73, shooting 58 percent from the field and connecting on 10 of 24 three-point attempts. Iowa’s ability to push tempo while on offense coupled with having the personnel capable of shooting at high percentages contrasts with Indiana’s style of play. Iowa wants every game to be a track meet while the Hoosiers prefer to slow things down and play in the half-court. Indiana (KenPom #33) enters Thursday’s contest losers of four of their last seven games, most recently losing at home to in-state rival Purdue 81-69 last Thursday. The Hoosiers have had struggles finding consistently on the offensive end of the floor and will hope to get things right against Iowa.

Iowa ranks 34th nationally in average possession length on offense (15.5 seconds per possession) with Indiana ranking 246th (17.7 seconds per possession.) If Indiana is able to dictate the tempo and slow the game down by limiting both teams’ offensive possessions, they’ll have a chance to stay within this 10-point spread. Indiana will be one of the best defenses Iowa has faced all year, with Indiana rating out as the 27th most efficient defense per KenPom. The Hoosiers defend the interior well but do struggle in defending the three-point line. Iowa has the ability to exploit Indiana by shooting the three-ball at a high clipas the Hawkeyes shoot 39.5 percent from three-point range on the season. Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, Iowa should control the pace from start to finish and looks as if they will notch their sixth straight Big Ten win.

What Are The Best College Basketball Betting Sites

There are many ways in which you can wager on a college basketball game, with the most popular markets being Against the Spread, Totals and Moneyline picks. There are also many online sportsbooks or betting sites in which you can place these wagers.

So what are the best college basketball betting sites?

Well, much of that is based upon opinion, with different users favoring different sportsbooks’ design or interfaces, the access to a mobile app, and many other determining factors. One thing that all bettors must prioritise with our best college basketball bets and in finding the best college basketball betting sites are the betting odds and betting lines on offer at that sportsbook.

Not every sportsbook prices up a game the same way. It is a competitive industry, and that gives the edge to the bettors, who can shop the odds to find the best betting lines or odds. An extra point or two against the spread can often decide if a bet wins or loses, and why place a wager at +200 when you can get +300 elsewhere.
