Iowa Hawkeyes NCAA Football Betting

Through the years, the Iowa Hawkeyes have scored some epic home wins against the power blue blood programs. Including a huge upset of the then-undefeated Michigan Wolverines in 2016. Also falling victim at Kinnick Stadium in recent years were the Ohio State Buckeyes and Penn State Nittany Lions. FOX Big Noon Kickoff knows the Hawkeyes' prowess against the best. So they have made Saturday’s game between Iowa and Michigan their feature. And with Gus Johnson calling the action with Joel Klatt, this one could be as good as it gets.

Iowa Hawkeyes Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Iowa Hawkeyes of the Big Ten Conference will host the Michigan Wolverines of the Big Ten Conference. Kickoff time at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa, is Noon p.m. ET, with television coverage on FOX. This rivalry matchup is the feature game of FOX Big Noon Kickoff.

Michigan is annually one of the biggest college football brands on the board. And this year, the betting public is feeling it for the Wolverines. Last year Michigan won its first Big Ten championship game. And also made its maiden voyage into the College Football Playoff. Finally, Jim Harbaugh and his Maize and Blue program met expectations. Casual fans will be loving on Michigan. That is based on branding and its recent success. Sharps will be shopping the Hawkeyes. But there are legitimate concerns about the Iowa offense.

Last game, the Michigan Wolverines won 34-27 against the Maryland Terrapins as 17-point home favorites. The game went under the total of 65. Michigan has a record of 3-1 straight up, 2-2 against the spread, and 1-3 over/under the total. Michigan ranks 19th for total offense, 60th for passing, 11th for rushing, and 2nd for scoring. Defensively they rank 8th overall, 4th against the pass, 33rd against the rush, and 7th for points allowed. Also, Michigan ranks 32nd for fewest turnovers lost and 81st for takeaways.

Blake Corum rushed for a career-high 243 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 4 Michigan topped Maryland in the Big Ten opener for both teams. Corum, who tied the school record with five rushing touchdowns against UConn a week earlier, had a career-high 30 carries. He became the first Michigan back to rush for 200 yards since Karan Higdon in 2017. Corum had never carried more than 21 times. His previous career high was 171 rushing yards against Washington last season.

JJ McCarthy completed 18 of 26 passes for 220 yards and two touchdowns for the Wolverines.

Iowa Hawkeyes Weekly Recap

Last game, the Iowa Hawkeyes won 27-10 against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights as 9-point road favorites. The game went over the total of 34.5. Iowa has a record of 3-1 straight up, 2-2 against the spread, and 1-3 over/under the total. Iowa ranks 131st for total offense, 124th for passing, 116th for rushing, and 120th for scoring. Defensively they rank 5th overall, 14th against the pass, 6th against the rush, and 1st for points allowed. Also, Iowa ranks 81st for fewest turnovers lost and 27th for takeaways.

Cooper DeJean scored on a 45-yard interception return, and Keavon Merriweather returned a fumble 30 yards for another first-half touchdown as Iowa rode its defense over Rutgers. Leshon Williams scored on a 2-yard run, and Drew Stevens kicked two field goals as the Hawkeyes forced three turnovers and handed Rutgers its 20th straight Big Ten Conference loss at home.

Rutgers appeared ready to challenge Iowa on the opening series, but turning the ball over three times against a defense that allowed 13 points in its first three games was not the way to win. The 23 points allowed by Iowa in the first four games is its fewest points allowed in the last 66 years. The Hawkeyes gave up 20 points in the first four games in 1956. Rutgers outgained Iowa 361-277, but the Hawkeyes won the turnover battle 3-0.

The Hawkeyes' defense was outstanding for the fourth straight game. However, playing that way next week against one of the top teams in the country will be a major test. Iowa also needs more from its offense to challenge the league.
