These two teams played last year where Iowa was also -3.5 points favorites and the time and took the 23-19 home win.

Iowa comes into this game with a bunch of momentum behind them after snapping their two game losing streak to start the season and destroying Michigan State 49-7. They came out of the gate late week hungry and took the 35-0 lead at half and never looked back. Running back Tyler Goodson had a huge game with 14 carries for 113 total yards and 2 touchdowns.

Running back Mohamed Ibrahim has been a monster and was named Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Week after his 224 rushing yard and 4 touchdown performance against Illinois. He’ll be facing his toughest battle going up against this Iowa defense who’s ranked 21st in the nation only giving up 102 yards per game on the ground. They’ll force Minnesota’s Quarterback Tanner Morgan to make plays in the air and will most likely throw a few interceptions that will be Iowa in prime field positions to score early points.

Minnesota is 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games when playing as the underdog and the total has gone over in 4 of the Golden Gophers last 5 games against an opponent in the Big Ten conference.
