  • Opening total: Over/Under 43.5 points scored
  • Time: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday (Big Ten Network)

UPDATE 4 P.M. ET FRIDAY: Iowa surged from -25.5 to -28.5 from Sunday afternoon to Monday afternoon at BetMGM. The line has been stable since then, with early ticket count actually 3/1 on Western Michigan, but early money just shy of 2/1 on the Hawkeyes.

BetMGM moved the total from 42.5 to 43.5 Monday, then returned to 2.5 Tuesday. Ticket count is almost 6/1 and money 4/1 on the Under.

UPDATE 4 P.M. ET MONDAY: The only reason this lopsided matchup merits an early update is because it's become much more lopsided. Iowa (2-0 SU, 1-1 ATS) is already up 5.5 points to -29 vs. Western Michigan (1-1 SU and ATS).

That climb happened in barely 24 hours time in Caesars Sports' college football odds Week 3 market. The Hawkeyes opened -23.5 early Sunday afternoon, reached -27 within a few hours, then went to -28/-29 today.
