10 Best College Football Predictions Against The Spread: Season Win Totals

5. Northwestern

Win Total 4
ATS PICK Over

Just because.

I know, I know, I know, you need more analysis than that, and it’s never okay to guess, but it’s Northwestern, it’s Pat Fitzgerald, and this program has a way of rising up and rocking when the expectations are at rock bottom.

Think of it like this. Northwestern was awful last year. The offense was abysmal, the defense didn’t show up, and the team still won three games.

The lines are better, the running game should be stronger, and no way, no how is a Fitzgerald team going to field a defense like that two years in a row.

Would you be the least bit stunned if the Wildcats upset Nebraska in the season-opener in Dublin, Ireland? They should beat Duke, Southern Illinois, and Miami University at home – all you need is one other win somewhere to go over, and you’ll probably get at least two.

Northwestern isn’t going winless in the Big Ten.
