Iowa football has been making all kinds of history this season, and its appearance in the Big Ten title 🏆 game is no different.
The Hawkeyes have cashed the under in seven straight games, including in the two lowest totals in college football history (25.5 at Nebraska, 27.5 vs. Rutgers).
For Saturday’s Big Ten title game between Iowa and Michigan, the total is once again in historic territory. At 35, it’s the lowest total for any conference championship game ever. Yet, the over has been dominating the action so far for this total 🤔, as it has collected 81.2% of the tickets and 88.9% of the handle.
There’s one other interesting note for this showdown, courtesy of the Bet the Board podcast. In games featuring a favorite of at least 21 points (Michigan is -21.5) and a total of 37 or fewer since 1980, favorites have gone 2-12 against the spread and have failed to cover by an average margin of 11 points.
