LSU Tigers vs. Iowa Hawkeyes Betting Preview

The first day of April is still going to have a March madness feel, as the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament will still be taking place. It will be the LSU Tigers taking on the Iowa Hawkeyes and the winner of this game is headed off to the Final Four. 

LSU is the defending national champion on the women’s side of things, and this team is in a good spot to repeat again. The Tigers are coming into this game with a record of 31-5, and they have been on a roll. 

Iowa has been one of the top teams in the country all season long, and they are sitting at 32-4 on the year. The Hawkeyes are looking to get some revenge on LSU as they lost in the title game a season ago. 

Iowa is coming into this game as a 1.5-point betting favorite, and the over/under line for this game is set at 168.5 total points. 

LSU Wants to Score Inside

The LSU Tigers are a team with a ton of size, and they will be looking to set the tone in the paint in this game. LSU is led by Angel Reese and she dominated this matchup with Iowa a season ago. 

Reese can be unstoppable when she gets the ball in the paint, and Iowa will be doing all that they can to keep it from getting in there. LSU has struggled to make shots at times this season, and that is typically when they don’t win games. 

The Tigers have not been a great defensive team throughout the season, and they will need to be on top of their game to slow down Clark and the Hawkeyes. 

Hawkeyes Have Shooting Star

Iowa Hawkeyes superstar Caitlin Clark is the best player in college basketball, and she might be the best of all-time. Clark is averaging over 30 points per game this season, and she has the ability to shoot the ball from anywhere. 

There is no doubt that Clark will be taking most of the shots for Iowa, but there are some other great players on this roster. Iowa is another team that doesn’t normally play great defense, but they will use many zones in order to make that happen. 

This Iowa team has been able to make shots when they need to all season long, and that will be their method of attack in this game. 

Clark, Hawkeyes Get it Done

The LSU Tigers are probably the deeper team in this matchup, but they have struggled at times this season. Iowa also has some added motivation in this game, and that could prove to give them an edge as this game gets tight in the second half. 

Caitlin Clark is simply the best player in the country this season, and she is not going to be denied against LSU this time around. The Hawkeyes will give their star player enough support in this game as they have some great shooters on this roster. 

Bet on the Iowa Hawkeyes at -1.5 as they are going to find a way to get a win in this game to move on to the Final Four.
