Top Picks for Week 3 College Football: Iowa vs. Western Michigan


Sep 13, 2023

Vaughn Dalzell discusses the upcoming match between Western Michigan and Iowa, focusing on Western Michigan’s offense and Iowa’s defense. Last week, Western Michigan had a strong start with a 75-yard run, but ultimately lost to Syracuse with a score of 49-7. Dalzell anticipates that Iowa’s defense will be even tougher to face, considering their performance against Utah State and Iowa State, where they allowed only 14 and 13 points respectively. Despite their ranking of 46th in total defense, the Hawkeyes have proven to be one of the best defensive teams in the country. They had two shutouts last year and held five opponents to 10 points or less. Comparatively, Western Michigan has struggled in the past, being held to six and nine points in games against San Jose State and Bowling Green.

Dalzell believes that Iowa’s defense will fare well against Western Michigan’s offense and predicts that the Broncos will be held to under seven points. He puts the odds at +102 for Iowa to keep Western Michigan’s team total under 6.5 points and suggests playing this bet up to -130. The NBC Sports College Football Betting Q&A will provide more insights on this game and other college football matchups on Saturday at 11am ET.
