This is all just for spits, giggles, and entertainment purposes only. However, just in case you dabble …

Apparently I need to get my TV fixed. The one I have in my office is a wee bit old, so maybe that’s why I’m seeing a bad Minnesota team every week, and the investment public is getting something different.

The line has gone down? Granted it was only a point, but still, Indiana -2 seems a wee bit light considering the Gophers haven’t even been remotely close in an 0-4 start in the Big Ten.

Indiana isn’t Alabama in Bloomington, but at least it has an excuse for going 1-4 – it’s played Michigan State, Ohio State, Iowa and Penn State. Meanwhile, the Gophers just got destroyed by a winless Nebraska and were obliterated by Maryland a few weeks ago.

It’s a home game, and it’s on Friday night, but if you like the Hoosiers, the two is hardly a barrier.

Why are people freaking out so hard on Wisconsin? Northwestern might be the toughest team against the spread to figure out on a weekly basis, so when in doubt, just go with what you know. Take the better team, and don’t blink.

Wisconsin is the far better team.

The line went up and then fell through the floor, with the Badgers giving away seven, and now just 4.5. That’s lovely.

This is a one-dimensional Wildcat team that won’t go anywhere if Clayton Thorson isn’t going ballistic. You aren’t going to want to believe me, but Alex Hornibrook will have the better day – if he plays. He’s going through a concussion protocol, but even if he doesn’t go, the 4.5 is nothing.

All week I just assumed I was going to take Purdue over Michigan State. It’s offense is red hot, the Spartans are banged up and just not that good, and … I can’t do it.

We know what MSU is going to do. It’s going to muck it up, slow things down, and it won’t miss tackles like Ohio State did.

The Spartan D will show up a week after the Ohio State version didn’t. So far this season, MSU has followed up tough losses with terrific performances. Giving away two points at home isn’t a thing.

Is it possible that Penn State just isn’t very good? The early blowout games made it seem like the Nittany Lions were a powerhouse, but Appalachian State is a Sun Belt team, and Pitt, Kent State and Illinois are Pitt, Kent State and Illinois.

Penn State has been bad over the last three weeks.

Check that. It’s been bad over the last two games and eight minutes – the Ohio State comeback seemed to kill the mojo.

Michigan is the only Big Ten team playing better than Iowa right now. It doesn’t have the ground game, and it’s not a perfect team by any means, but giving it 6.5 is a bit insulting. The Hawkeyes can win this outright, even on the road.

Illinois might not be quite so miserable as it’s playing. Maryland is way, way, way too one dimensional to be giving away 17.5 points to anyone right now outside of Rutgers, and the Illini should be able to hold up okay against the run. It didn’t against Wisconsin last week, but that’s a different animal.

The line came down a wee bit, and you should find it at 18.5 if you need to. There’s a chance Illinois keeps this to under ten. Gut feeling … the Illini are due to do come up with a curveball game.
