2022 College Football Season Iowa Hawkeyes Betting Guide and Odds Analysis

2022 College Football Season: Iowa Hawkeyes Betting Guide and Odds Analysis

Last year was a bit of a surprising one in the Big Ten, as we failed to see the Ohio State Buckeyes perform at their best. That opened a door for the Michigan Wolverines to win their division, while the Iowa Hawkeyes won the other. It was, in the grand scheme of things, a good season for Iowa, as they ended the year with 10 wins, although they closed the season out with losses to Michigan in the Conference Championship Game and to Kentucky in their bowl game. If we are being honest, it was the Hawkeyes defense that helped them excel last season, and they are going to need to do the same again this year with what looks to be a tougher schedule. The bookies seem to agree, as they have the Iowa win total for 2022 set at 7 ½. Let’s take a look at all the College Football Betting Lines for the Hawkeyes this season.

Hawkeyes Regular Season Win Total

If the Hawkeyes are to match what they did last season, they will need to get off to a similar start as they had in 2021, where they came out and won their first 6 games before losing 2 in a row. With home games against South Dakota State, Iowa State, and Nevada to start the season, the Hawkeyes have the opportunity to get out to another fast start. They then have a road trip to Rutgers, another winnable one, before going on a brutal stretch versus Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio State. This is a stretch of games that will define their season, as Iowa could find themselves in a losing skid when all is said and done.

The final stretch of games in the 2022 season will see Iowa host Northwestern, followed by games against Purdue and Wisconsin, a pair of teams that they lost to last year. They will then end the year on the road to Minnesota and at home to Nebraska.

I am absolutely not sold on the Iowa offense this year, which could well prove to be a problem. They also have a tougher schedule that what they had last year, with 7 or 8 wins looking the most likely outcome. Right now, I am leaning toward the UNDER 7 ½ wins for the Iowa Hawkeyes this season.

Big Ten Conference Odds

Last season, when the Hawkeyes manage to hot double-digit wins, they did so without having to face either Michigan or Ohio State in the regular season. Yes, they play in the weaker of the two divisions in the Big Ten, but losses to teams from the other division still count in the conference standings, which I think creates some problems for Iowa this season. As it stands at the moment, the Hawkeyes are sitting at +1700 to win the Big Ten, so you have to say that they are drifting into longshot territory there. I don’t see this team making a return to the Big Ten Conference Championship Game, and I certainly don’t see them in the playoff conversation. The Hawkeyes are currently at +9500 to win the National Championship.
