Where is the cash on tonight’s Big Ten action?

The Indiana Hoosiers head to the corn and the #4 Iowa Hawkeyes at Carver-Hawkeye Arena this evening. IU is a big underdog, and Luka Garza is running away with the Wooden Award as of now.

So where are sports bettors going as we get closer to game time? Let’s take a look. All odds and info were provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Point Spread

Right now Iowa is a 10-point favorite, with 88% of the cash and 84% of the bets at DK on the Hawkeyes.

Is the public right? Probably! Trayce Jackson-Davis is good enough to carry IU for stretches, but the Campus of The Corn have the No. 1 efficient offense in college basketball via points per possession. They should be able to run and hide here.


The total sits at 150.5, with 77% of the money and 86% of the tickets on the over.

Is the public right? The total has gone over in four of Indiana’s last five, and 12 of Iowa’s last 16. The bookmakers might not like it, but the trend-following humans are likely correct here.


Iowa is a -560 favorite, which makes Indiana a +420 underdog. The Hawkeyes have 96% of the moneyline cash and 92% of the win-only tickets.

Is the public right? If you see a path for Indiana to slow down Garza and all those shooters he’s surrounded by, fire it up for the underdog. We’ll stay away from both sides at these prices however.
