Purdue at Iowa Picks & Betting Tips


Iowa should win but could be pushed all the way by the Boilermakers.

The Hawkeyes are up to #2 after a huge win last weekend and are fully deserving of that billing.

They have had problems with Purdue in recent seasons though and this is a double digit spread.

So while Iowa can improve to 7-0 on Saturday, they may not run away with this one.

  • Iowa have a 6-0 record
  • Iowa are 5-1-0 ATS so far this season
  • Purdue are 8-2-0 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog
  • Purdue have won 3 of the last 4 meetings with Iowa
  • The last 4 meetings have been settled by 9 points or less
  • Both teams rank in the top 10 in points allowed per game

Head To Head


  • Purdue lead the all-time series 49-39-3
  • Purdue won 24-20 when the teams met last season

Purdue Form


Purdue come into this matchup having lost two of their last three games to lose some momentum.

The Boilermakers got off to a flying start with a 30-21 win over Oregon State and shutout win over Connecticut (49-0).

Their perfect start was halted by a 27-13 loss to #12 Notre Dame but they bounced back to edge past Illinois, 13-9, a week later.

They come into this matchup on the back of a loss though. Minnesota beat them 20-13 last weekend.

Aidan O’Connell has replaced Jack Plummer as starting QB and is now 66/100 for 743 yards, four touchdowns and five picks through four games.

David Bell is the standout receiver on the roster with 439 yards and three scores so far.

In the backfield, RB King Doerue has 299 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.

The defense is a strong unit that ranks in the top 15 in total defense and as high as #8 in points allowed per game.

Iowa Form


Iowa have climbed from #18 to #2 in the rankings thanks to a six-game win streak and perfect record.

The Hawkeyes opened in impressive fashion with a 34-6 win over #17 Indiana and they followed that up with a 27-17 victory over #9 Iowa State.

They then reeled off three more wins over non-ranked teams in Kent State (30-7), Colorado State (24-14) and Maryland (51-14).

Iowa took their perfect record to 6-0 last weekend with their biggest win of the season so far – a 23-20 victory over #4 Penn State that moved them closer to the College Football Playoffs.

QB Spencer Petras is 102/168 for 1,138 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions. On the ground he has rushed for three TDs.

Petras’ favorite target in the passing game has been Sam Laporta. He has 271 yards and two scores.

The jewel of the offensive crown is RB Tyler Goodson. Not only does he have 518 rushing yards and five scores, he also has 162 yards receiving and a further touchdown.

The defense has more than played its part in Iowa’s success so far too. It ranks #8 in total defense (274 ypg) and #4 in points allowed per game (13.0).

Verdict

Iowa have been in outstanding form this season so we can have confidence in them winning here.

Purdue have had their number in recent years though and those meetings have been settled by less than the spread is here.

So while we could see the Hawkeyes register win number seven, they may not manage to cover.
