Iowa vs. Wisconsin 2019 NCAAF Week 11 moneyline odds for the Hawkeyes: +290
Iowa enjoyed a bump up in the rankings to 18 this week despite not playing a game. The Hawkeyes got some moment going after picking up 2 straight wins. But they haven’t beat Wisconsin since 2015 and have lost 6 of their last seven to the Big Ten West rival Badgers.
The Hawkeyes’ key to success will be their defense. They can shut down any opponent in college football. Offensively, on the other hand, the Hawkeyes have struggled to find their groove. They’ve been bailed out a few times this year by turnovers and defensive scores. Plus the offensive unit will have to sea with some potential injuries.
OL Alaric Jackson has a knee injury and it’s not clear if he will be on the field against Wisconsin. And RB Tyler Goodson, who left Iowa’s last game with an ankle injury, has been labeled as questionable.

After dropping 2 in a row, the Badgers are in a must win scenario if they want to keep their Big Ten West hopes alive. The recent skid has some wondering if wholesale changes are on the horizon in Wisconsin. Even with the turmoil surrounding the squad, the AP still bumped the Badgers up two spots to 16th in the national rankings.
The offense was an issue for Wisconsin in its recent loss to Ohio State. But head coach Paul Chryst promised that some adjustments will make the team harder to cover and predict. But the usually run-heavy team will have a tough task facing a top-notch defense.
