Iowa vs Michigan 2019 College Football Week 6 Odds & Analysis

Written by on October 2, 2019

As bettors, we would all love it if sports were totally predictable, but that would take away the fin of going through the schedule each week to try and figure out where our money should go. In terms of unpredictability, college football ranks very high on the scale. We see upsets happen every single week, and I don’t just mean in terms of wins and losses. Games that look like an easy spread bet suddenly become anything but, with Clemson barely surviving a trip to North Carolina in Week 5 serving as the perfect example. The Week 6 college football schedule is serving up a bunch of games where the underdog looks like a very tempting pick.

One of those games can be found over in the Big ten Conference, where the Iowa Hawkeyes go on the road to face a Michigan Wolverines team that is on the ropes and just one punch away from being totally floored. Can the Wolverines save their season with a big conference win or will Iowa go into the Big House and wreak even more havoc on Michigan? The Wolverines are favored by 3 ½, with the point total set at 47.

Why bet on the Iowa Hawkeyes?

The Iowa Hawkeyes come into Week 6 of the college football season with a perfect 4-0 record, and it has once again been defense that has driven this team forward. Through their 3 games, the Hawkeyes have surrendered a measly 34 points combined, with half of those given up in a single game, an 18-17 win over the Iowa State Cyclones.

Their side of the Big Ten is beginning to look very competitive indeed, with Wisconsin and Minnesota also sitting and 4-0, with all 3 teams also having picked up wins in conference play. Iowa beat Rutgers 30-0 in their lone conference game thus far and it’s fair to suggest that this one is going to be a good deal tougher. That said, Iowa is 5-1 SU in their last 6 meetings with Michigan and are now undefeated in their last 7 games overall.

Why bet on the Michigan Wolverines?

Prior to the start of the season, there was already a fair deal of pressure on Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines. After 4 games, that pressure has almost certainly intensified. The Wolverines are 3-1, but they are perhaps a little lucky to have that record, as they barely escaped with a win over Army in Week 2 of the season.

Iowa vs Michigan is going to be a close one.

The biggest problem, though, is that they are now in a hole in the Big Ten, with that lone loss being a 35-14 thumping at the hands of the Wisconsin Badgers in a game that was as lopsided as the score suggests. While the Wolverines have won 10 in a row at home and are 13-3 SU in their last 16, this does not look like a confident bunch.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Iowa vs Michigan

My initial though here was that I was going to take Iowa to cover the spread, but I now think that I am going to go a step further and take them to win. That Wolverines offense has struggled all season long against defenses not as good as what Iowa is bringing to the table.

Score: Iowa Hawkeyes 24 – Michigan Wolverines 17
