Iowa (+1.5) over Purdue

Don’t put much stock in Purdue’s regular season sweep of Iowa, given the improbability that the Boilermakers will hit 51 percent of 3-pointers and the Hawkeyes will hit just 27 percent again. No team in the Big Ten has played better than Iowa over the past 3½ weeks, during which it has gone 8-1, while averaging 84.5 points per game. In a shootout featuring two of the best offenses in the nation, ride the hot hand of the Hawkeyes, who have been lighting up far superior defenses lately.
