There aren’t many standout plays in this game, but you should invest in Iowa’s backcourt somehow. Nebraska’s running defense has been a seven for most of the season, allowing at least 150 yards in each of their last five games.

At $6,800, Kaleb Johnson could be a huge steal. He has generally used more touches than Leshon Williams this year and has been far more dynamic and efficient with his touches.

No QB is an ideal option at their price – especially Casey Thompson against Iowa’s stifling pass defense. However, Trey Palmer is worth a look at wide receivers. When Nebraska’s passing attack produces, it produces because of him. Palmer has 62 catches for 878 yards and seven points this year after playing two touchdowns against Wisconsin.

Another massive buy-low opportunity for your flex spot is Iowa TE Luke Lachey at $4,500. Sam LaPorta is expected to miss this game for Iowa, making Lachey the best TE on a team that routinely includes its big passers.

Along with LaPorta, Lachey had five catches for 77 yards last week. And this week he will be the primary weapon at TE. Not only will he have a bigger workload, but he has the size to take chances in the red zone at 6’6″, 252 pounds.

Prediction for Nebraska vs. Iowa

Even on their current winning streak, it’s hard to call Iowa an inspirational team. But credit must be given where credit is due. The Hawkeyes started the season slowly, but since their 10-54 loss to Ohio State in October, they have won four straight games. Three of those wins – against Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin – were in double figures.

Last week, the Hawkeyes defeated Big Ten West contender Minnesota 13-10 to take the tiebreak lead in the West Division. Iowa now has head-to-head victories over Purdue and Minnesota, and as long as they win over Nebraska, they’re through in the Big Ten Championship Game.

Even though Nebraska is an unassuming opponent after winning 3-8 after a midseason layoff from the head coach, the stakes are high for Iowa this week. They can’t afford to come out flat and an experienced coach like Kirk Ferentz should be able to hold them down.

With these two teams, the under feels appropriate. But even below the projected total, Iowa can cover the range with its quality defense and some big plays on offense. In a low-pressure, high-stakes environment, expect Ferentz to pull it off.

forecast: Iowa 23, Nebraska 10
