    Iowa Hawkeyes -6

    Iowa is heading into the game here and coming off of a very impressive victory over Maryland. The Hawkeyes, though, really had a great defensive showing in the game and now should have a chance to improve even more in the game. The Hawkeyes defense should be looking great in the game here and that will definitely help the Hawkeyes out quite a bit in taking down Northwestern who cannot really do much against the crushing defense that Iowa brings to the court. Final Score Prediction, Iowa Hawkeyes win and cover ATS 70-55.
