3. Rutgers at Northwestern

LINE Rutgers -2
ATS PICK Rutgers

And you can probably get this at 1.5 in some places.

Let’s keep this one simple.

What about the Northwestern offense would suggest to you that it can win a game against a jacked up defense looking to come up with a big performance?

Now, Texas A&M shocked Alabama the last time I asked something like that, and Northwestern has had two weeks off to rest up for a home game, but …

This Wildcat offense really is awful.

It ran wild against a miserable Ohio team, and it perked up late against Michigan State when the game was over, and against Duke to make that interesting, but the real Wildcat O is more like the one that couldn’t move the ball a lick in the 56-7 loss at Nebraska.

Yeah, the Rutgers offense couldn’t manage more than 13 points in any of its last three games and only came up with 17 – at least against FBS teams – against Temple.

There’s a reason for the struggles …

Over the last three games, Rutgers went on the road to face Michigan and Michigan State, and it dealt with a surly Ohio State.

Expect the Scarlet Knight D that held everyone before Ohio State and Michigan State – including Michigan – to under 300 yards of total offense to show up.
