Notre Dame is 5-1 against the spread against the Big Ten and 15-34-3 against the spread following a loss. Iowa is 5-12 against the spread against the ACC, 5-14 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 1-8 against the spread in their last nine neutral site games.
The total is set at 149 and I like the over here as both of these teams put up big numbers so the over is my free pick. My stronger play is the winner against the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area.
