Ohio vs. Iowa State Prediction: Spread

In their recent game against OHIO, Iowa State was an 3.5-point underdog and couldn’t cover the srpead. They currently hold an ATS record of 0-1 for the season. Iowa State is 1-2 ATS in their last road games.

So far this season, the Bobcats have an ATS record of 1-1. This comes after covering the spread vs. Florida Atlantic in their most recent game. Looking across Ohio’s three most recent home games, they are 1-1-1 against the spread.

Despite being 3-point underdogs at home, Ohio’s pass defense look good against Florida Atlantic’s in their last game. I like their chances to cover vs. Iowa State.

Ohio vs. Iowa State Prediction: MoneyLine

Iowa dealt the Cyclones a recent loss, causing them to drop back to a .500 record. They are now getting ready for this week’s game with a 1-1 record. In the loss, quarterback Rocco Becht finished with a QB rating of 62.97 while completing 23 of 44 passes for 203 yards. He also ended the game with one touchdown.

Ohio’s 17-10 win against Florida Atlantic has propelled their record to 2-1 as they prepare for this week’s showdown with Iowa State.

For a moneyline bet, I like Iowa State to pick up the win. However, my recommendation is to stick to the moneyline, as our model gives Ohio a decent chance at covering.
