Iowa (5-3, 5-2 ATS) will be looking to extend its current winning streak against the Fighting Illini (4-4, 3-4 ATS) to six in the series.  However, Ron Zook and the Illini will be looking to stop them and record their third cover in five years against the Hawkeyes by the college football betting line.

Iowa’s season has been one of streaks.  After starting the season with three straight wins, they lost three straight games before winning their past two against Indiana and Wisconsin.  Besides winning their past two SU, they have also covered their last three ATS per the closing NCAA betting odds.

Two weeks ago against Wisconsin, the Shonn Greene show took center stage with the junior RB rushing for 217 yards on 25 carries to go along with an astounding four touchdowns.  His 1154 yards and 10 touchdowns on the season only put him behind Javon Ringer as far as Big 10 running backs are concerned.

Iowa played its first five games under the ‘total’ for college football gamblers this year, but their last two games have both gone over the spread.  QB Juice Williams and the Illini have had an up and down season this year after last year’s Rose Bowl appearance which ended up being the programs first since 1983.

Last week at Camp Randall, the Illini lost 27-17 to Wisconsin with Juice throwing three costly interceptions in the defeat.  Super sophomore WR Arrelious Benn has been spectacular for the Illini and is second in the Big 10 in receiving with 46 catches for 740 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

The Fighting Illini have been solid for the past three years for NCAA betting fans in conference with a 14-7 ATS record against the NCAA betting line for sports bettors.  The current NCAA odds have Illinois installed as a 2.5-point home favorite with a game ‘total’ of 50 points.
