This is all just for spits, giggles, and entertainment purposes only. However, just in case you dabble …
Ohhhhhhh, no you don’t, Ohio State. You don’t screw us all up like that with a win-but-don’t-cover the 3.5 against Penn State and assume you can just come back to our loving arms. Indiana might just score enough to keep this from being a total annihilation – or at least closer than the 26. Of course it’s the wrong play to go against the Buckeyes – so I understand if you’ll do just that. But … Indiana is going to score at least 20 points. Do with that what you will.

I’m well aware that Michigan blowing away Northwestern was my big, giant, sure-thing last week, and it wasn’t even close. Dive right back in. At home, Michigan giving up just 17.5 against Maryland will make up for it. In Ann Arbor, the Wolverines have won by 46, 25 and 46 points. Everything is fine.

We had an agreement, Rutgers. You’re supposed to be bad, and the other team covers with ease, and everyone goes on about their day. But you didn’t get the memo against Indiana last week. Illinois is rested. Hopefully you got in when the line was Lovie -1.5 instead of the current 5.5.

I am SO sick and tired of getting my brains beaten in by trying to figure out Northwestern. The team without an offense showed it really could be worse without Jeremy Larkin and a running game, but do you want to dive in and buy into a Michigan State team that makes watching college football a chore?
The line has moved all over the place before settling in as Spartans -10. Just stay away, but if you have to, assume MSU scores around 30ish, and Northwestern scores around 17ish.

I’m seriously asking. How is Minnesota going to score? The Iowa defense is rested, the Gopher offense doesn’t have Rodney Smith to run the ball anymore, and the passing game isn’t going to do much. The line ballooned up fast from Iowa -3 to -7, and that’s still probably low. I know, I know, it’s tough to go with the under when it’s 43, but give it some thought.

No, you don’t need any help on this one. Wisconsin always cares about beating Nebraska – it was Barry Alvarez’s school. The Badgers have had two weeks off, and the Huskers can’t stop the run all that well. The 17 Bucky is giving away might be 17 too light.
