The Iowa Hawkeyes are showing some solid value at home as a 4.5-point favorite over the Nebraska Cornhuskers. These two schools simply don't like each other, and you can bet Carver Arena will be rowdy and ready to go tonight. Iowa is a respectable 9-4 at home this season, but more importantly Nebraska is just 2-4 on the road (0-3 in Big Ten).
Outside of a horrible loss at home to Ohio State, who also killed Nebraska, Iowa has looked very good in conference home games. They nearly upset Purdue (76-79), while upsetting Michigan 75-59 in their last home game.
Nebraska is just 7-19-2 ATS in their last 28 games as a road underdog of 0.5-6.5 and 7-17 ATS after playing a home game over the last 2 seasons, while Iowa is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400 and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. BET THE HAWKEYES!
