Wisconsin vs. Iowa: Picks, odds, and prediction

Check out the predictions for Wisconsin vs. Iowa on Saturday.

The Wisconsin Badgers are facing off against the Iowa Hawkeyes at Camp Randall Stadium in Week 7, looking to improve on their 4-1 start and remain undefeated in conference play.

Meanwhile, the Hawkeyes, who stand at 5-1, are coming off a 20-14 win over Purdue in Week 6.

What are all of the odds ahead of the game?

Odds(via DraftKings)

Moneyline: Wisconsin -310, Rutgers +250

Spread: Wisconsin -9.5

Over/under points: Over 35(-110), Under 35(-110)


Prop 1: Iowa TE Erick All over 41.5 receiving yards

Iowa quarterback Deacon Hill had a rough first start, throwing for 110 yards on 6/21 passing against Purdue last week.

However, one thing was apparent: he was primarily looking Erick All’s way, as the tight end caught five of Hill’s passes for 97 yards.

In what could be a game where Iowa plays from behind for certain stretches, I wouldn't be surprised if Hill looks All’s way a lot again, hence the over here.

Prop 2: Wisconsin WR Will Pauling over 26.5 receiving yards

Last week, I went with the over for Pauling on the exact same prop, and the wideout went for 68 yards on eight catches, seeing a career-high 11 targets.

With Cooper DeJean on the outside, plus what appears to be a poor weather game, it could be a number of short passes for the Badgers, which means more volume for Pauling.

I don’t know if he’ll get the volume he saw in Week 6 against Iowa, but I’m taking the over again.

Prop 3: Wisconsin RB Jackson Acker over 28.5 rushing yards

Jackson Acker saw a nice welcome to his new role with a 13-carry, 65-yard performance in Week 6 against Rutgers where the backup ran hard with authority when given opportunities.

This week, Acker faces a tough matchup with Iowa’s run defense, but I see him getting enough volume to get over 28.5 rushing yards in what could be a run-heavy day on both sides.
