Pick Details

(343) Iowa vs. Purdue (344) 3:30 PM | Sat, Oct 24 2020
Sport: NCAAF | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1280)
IOWA (-160) @ pinnacle

This is an 8* play on Iowa.

The Hawkeyes are just a small favorite on the road at Purdue, but there will be no home crowd to cheer on the Boilermakers. Head coach Jeff Brohm will not be at the game on Saturday, following a positive test for Covid-19.  More bad news for the Boilermakers, their best player WR Rondale Moore will not play against Iowa after opting back in to play this season. The Hawkeyes are 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games as a road favorite, and they are 5-2 straight up in the last seven head to head meetings. The home team has only covered in one of the last 10 meetings between these teams. Purdue is in a very tough spot here.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
