Minnesota vs. Iowa,
02/17/2013 14:06 EDT,
Score: 51 - 72
Point Spread: -1/-103 Iowa
The Key: First off, Iowa has been great at home where it is 12-2 this season. The losses came to Indiana and Michigan State, by 4 and 3 points respectively, in games the Hawkeyes easily could have won. Iowa is an impressive 20-8 ATS in its last 28 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Secondly, Iowa will be very hungry today. It gave a game away late at Minnesota earlier this month and will be out for some serious revenge. This is also a big game for the Hawks in terms of its NCAA tourney chances as it is currently 5-7 in conference play. Iowa is a perfect 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games versus teams with a winning percentage above .600, and it is 8-1 ATS in all games this season versus teams that carry a winning percentage of .600 to .800. Iowa won last season's home meeting by 4 points, and I expect a similar outcome here. The Golden Gophers have dropped 4 straight on the road and will have a tough time ending this skid in Iowa City.
