    The game actually does not mean anything because itís very early and by the end of the year teams are totally different this is why I am a professional

    I don't see any line yet. I don't think they typically post lines that far in advance for CBB.

    Sagarin makes the line Iowa by 1. Which brings up the question of how sharp are the lines at DK???

    If not mistaken, ZAGs were -2.5 or -3 awhile back before the -4 yesterday at DK

    Iowa catching points? Thats a no Brainerd. Zags will overlook iowa as just a bunch of white guys and will get dismantled by said white guys and realize white dudes can ball and shoot. Zags keep close but Iowa pulls away with experience and lights out shooters late. Bank it

    now, Iowa will (or at least should) have somewhat of a counter for that - against such opponents they'll play a lot of zone and hope their perimeter shooting fails. however, the zone will keep them susceptible on the glass which is an area they're not terribly strong in to begin with

    naturally, this matchup with the Zags is going to be a great example of such a scenario with the Zags' strengths of bigs, inside/outside game, ball handling, and glass work. if the Hawkeyes 3-pt shooting dips to around 32-34% and the Zags can run them off the line a bit, they'll be in some trouble. that said, the Zags defense hasn't impressed to this point

    Iowa struggles mightily when Garza has foul trouble. If he has to sit for a 5 minute stretch or more - ballgame. Zags would blow the doors off em. Too much of a wildcard to play on Iowa. Zags -4 would be a gift. Think we'll see this closer to 6...6' by tip.

    Iowa has put up some points this year though, against - Nobody.

    I think that would be more of a factor if they were playing a quality defensive team - which Iowa is not. They're gonna get up and down and get quality shots, no doubt.

    North Carolina isn't anyone? They have 4 guys 6-11 who start. How did athletic tall players fair against Iowa? Iowa doesn't back down. Very upper class with lots of game experience. Iowa wins this by 10+

    North Carolina very talented, should have a real fine year in the ACC, they were impressive.

    Having said that, this doesn't translate into Iowa winning vs. the Zags.

    UNC out-boarded Iowa by 9, difference was UNC was extremely careless with the ball and combined that with terrible perimeter D

    Zags bigs are far more polished than UNC's and they take care of the ball better

    i have no lean on this game at this time (maybe the Over if it's not ridiculously inflated) but am extremely excited for it

    West Virginia is a top 10 defense year in and out - including this year, so far to date if you like metrics.

    Zags hung 87 on em.

    Kansas is a top 10 defensive team this year per the stats as well.

    Zags hung 102 on the them.

    Zags team total will be something of interest as well.

    I think if you like a play on Iowa, ya might as well parlay it with the over.

    No chance Iowa wins or covers unless this game gets up around 190.

    Edit: if you have a local that doesn't mind a correlated...

    any chance this total will be lined below, say, 170-172 or so?

    Highly unlikely it'll be sub 170 in my opinion.

    Books took a bath on the Gonz/Kansas total. Then set the Gonzaga/Auburn total at 170 for the following day's game.

    Good question - no clue here. I'm anxious to see what the Zags team total rolls out at. I think they'll get theirs for sure. I don't see Iowa scoring 90, but yet wouldn't be surprised at Gonzaga hangin 105...

    Gotta feeling we'll see a reverse line movement on the total come Saturday. Public over....

    yeah if it gets too out of hand i'll just play the Under small and then hope at least one of the teams realizes that playing a more controlled tempo with half court sets could be more beneficial
