The Iowa Hawkeyes will look to remain unbeaten after starting the year with a 77-63 win over UMKC in their last outing. Joe Wieskamp led the Hawkeyes with 15 points on 5 of 10 shooting with 4 threes, while Tyler Cook and Jordan Bohannon each had 12 points, with Cook adding team-highs of 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 blocks. Maishe Dailey added 11 points to finish off the quartet of double-digit scorers for Iowa in the winning effort. As a team, Iowa is averaging 77 points on 44.7% shooting from the field, 28% from behind the arc and 73.7% from the foul line after their first game of the season.
Green Bay is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Iowa is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games while the over is 6-1-1 in their last 8 games following a win.
Iowa is a deep team that’s had a lot of success ATS at home, and looked good against UMKC in their last outing. Green Bay looked good in their opener, but struggled against real competition when they faced the Sycamores. All in all, I think Iowa has the edge on both sides of the ball and should be able to get the job done with a win and cover here.
