The Iowa Hawkeyes will square off against the Western Michigan Broncos at 8:33 p.m. ET Monday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Iowa is out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.

The Hawkeyes took their matchup against the Alabama State Hornets this past Thursday by a conclusive 108-82 score. Iowa got double-digit scores from five players: forward Keegan Murray (26), guard Payton Sandfort (21), forward Kris Murray (17), guard Jordan Bohannon (12), and guard Joe Toussaint (11). Toussaint hadn’t helped his team much against the North Carolina Central Eagles last Tuesday, so this was a nice turnaround for him. Joe Toussaint’s points were the most he has had all year.

Meanwhile, WMU received a tough blow this past Thursday as they fell 80-63 to the Saginaw Valley Cardinals.

Iowa is the favorite in this one, with an expected 28-point margin of victory. Now might not be the best time to take Iowa against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.

The Hawkeyes’ victory brought them up to 5-0 while the Broncos’ loss pulled them down to 1-3. A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Iowa comes into the game boasting the most points per game in college basketball at 97.3. On the other end of the spectrum, WMU is stumbling into the contest with the 24th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 61.7 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against WMU.
