Michigan Wolverines vs Iowa Hawkeyes 2/17/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Michigan Wolverines will meet with the Iowa Hawkeyes in a Big Ten Conference clash in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, Iowa City, IA, on Thursday, February 17, 2022, at 7:00 PM (EST). At this stage in the year, Michigan doesn’t have much room for mistakes.

 

The Wolverines were supposed to be a championship contender this season, but they started with a 7-7 record after 14 games. They improved since then, with a 6-3 record in their previous nine games.

 

One of those victories was their biggest of the season, as they defeated then-No. 3 Purdue in a rout last Thursday at home. They were unable to build on that victory, falling by 11 points against Ohio State on Saturday. 

 

The Wolverines are a powerful offensive club, with KenPom’s adjusted efficiency ratings ranking them No. 22. They are superior in almost every offensive metric, allowing them to compete in conference play.

 

Michigan tends to play at a slower tempo, ranking 226th in average possession duration. It’ll be up against an Iowa defense ranked 119th in adjusted efficiency.

 

  • The total went OVER in 11 of Michigan’s last 16 matches.
  • The University of Michigan Wolverines is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 matches on the road against Iowa.
  • Michigan is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Michigan Wolverines vs Iowa Hawkeyes Predictions 2/17/2022

 

Iowa had a great start to the season, finishing 11-3 in its first 14 games. Since then, the Hawkeyes had their ups and downs, including a three-game conference losing streak. They recovered with a three-game winning streak, defeating Minnesota, Maryland, and Nebraska.

 

Iowa sits in the middle of the Big Ten rankings, but that should be enough to get them into the NCAA Tournament as an at-large team. In Lunardi’s latest bracketology forecasts, the Hawkeyes are a No. 7 seed. They still have three rated opponents and four unranked opponents on their schedule.

 

On offense, the Hawkeyes are even better, ranking fourth in KenPom’s rankings. They have the lowest turnover rate among all 358 Division I teams while playing at one of the quickest speeds in the country.

 

Their shooting percentages are also strong, helping them to make the most of their possessions. They’ll be up against a Michigan defense that has an adjusted efficiency rating of 80.

 

  • The University of Iowa Hawkeyes is 10-4 SU in their last 14 matches.
  • Iowa is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 matches at home against Michigan.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Iowa’s last 5 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Michigan Wolverines vs Iowa Hawkeyes. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Michigan Wolverines. On Thursday night, I like Michigan as a two-possession favorite.

 

The Wolverines fell at Ohio State on Saturday, but it came after their most emotional performance of the year. They got their disappointing outing out of the way, and now they’ll be ready for a big game.

 

Michigan needs a win to bolster its credentials, and I believe the Wolverines will get it on Thursday. Dickinson is the sort of player that may cause problems for Iowa. Throughout the match, he’ll be eating in the paint. Michigan will win to a predicted score of 73-69.
