Northwestern Wildcats VS # 4 Iowa Hawkeyes. The NCAAB pick to win the game is the Northwestern Wildcats +11. Iowa’s Luka Garza is playing his best and remains the best player in College Basketball. Though the squad is a strong team, they lack immensely in their defensive line. This shortcoming will put the Northwestern Wildcats in a favorable position in the game. The Wildcats have been outstanding in their previous game, showing explosive offense accompanied by an impenetrable defense. The Hawkeyes will drop the Wildcats but fall short on the spread predicted to a score of 85-73.
