Iowa vs. Indiana, 03/02/2013 19:30
Point Spread: +14½/-106 Iowa
Saturday's NCAAB Free Pick: Iowa +14.5
The Hawkeyes were able to pull off a 58-48 win at home over Purdue, despite playing without starting point guard Mike Gessell. While Iowa won't have Gessell in today's game against Indiana, I don't think his absence will keep the Hawkeyes from covering this large spread. Iowa is one of the most underrated teams in the country, as their lack of experience has cost them several games late. Iowa proved they can hang with the Hoosiers in a 65-69 home loss earlier this season.
Iowa suffered a devastating road loss at Nebraska in their last game away from home, but that doesn't mean they won't keep it close at Indiana. This team lost by just 9-points at Ohio State, 3-points at Minnesota and 4-points at Wisconsin. They arguably should have beat both the Gophers and Badgers. The key in this game is Iowa's 3-point defense, as they are allowing opposing teams to shoot just 30.4% from long distance. In the first matchup against Indiana, the Hoosiers went just 4 of 14 (28.6%) from behind the arc. Iowa's season is on the line as they have to win this game if they want any hopes of making the tournament, while Indiana could be in for a letdown after an emotional loss at Minnesota earlier this week. BET THE HAWKEYES!
