Win Division (+825), Win Conference (+4000)
SSA Model Pick: Division (Low Confidence)
If there is a team to take out Wisconsin in the West this season, it’s Iowa. Kirk Ferentz enters his 20th season as Iowa’s head coach and hopes he can replicate the success this team had in 2015 when they made a Big 10 title game appearance and played in the Rose Bowl. The last time Iowa beat Wisconsin was in 2015 and if the Hawkeyes can take down the Badgers at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday September 22nd they’ll be in position to win the division.
Win Total Analysis
7.5 wins (+100/-120)
SSA Model Pick: None
Iowa is a sound team but lacks elite athletes. That means they can beat teams they shouldn’t but it also means they can lose to teams they shouldn’t. We have the Hawkeyes at 7.5 wins, so stay away from this number.
