Welcome Welcome Welcome, another edition of picks, and another set of winners. Last week the picks went .500 as the O/U in the college section got ripped, but as promised more homework in the NFL and those picks went 4-1 against the spread. So here is how the season stands
B1G Ten: Against the Spread: 3-2 Against the O/U: 1-4
NFL: Against the Spread: 4-1 Against the O/U: 2-3
B1G Ten: Against the Spread: 24-21 Against the O/U: 24-20-1
NFL: Against the Spread: 19-25-1 Against the O/U: 22-22-1
ALL GAMES TOTAL 89-88-3
I have a ton of confidence in the picks against the spread this week. A lot of tough totals this week though, as I handicapped a few within a half point of what the line ended up being. Also, if I didn’t have to pick the Lions game this week I wouldn’t, and for a fifth game I would add Falcons -2.5. Also would avoid the Dallas/Phi game by all measures. I actually have this game going to OT at 17-17, and just a tough bet. But enough about games we are not picking lets look at the ones we are. But before we do, as always(ahomegame):
If you lose your house following my picks, it’s not my fault. But if you win a second house, keep me in mind come Christmas time. Let’s get this rolling
Purdue at Iowa Pick: Iowa -5 UNDER 50.5
Picking a winner in this game, is actually picking who sucks less. I’m not sure if Purdue still qualifies as a division 1 team this year, and Iowa has been less than stellar. But the Hawkeyes have shown they can keep games close to good teams, and Iowa has shown they can’t even stay on the field. Is this game even on TV? I have the final score 27-20 Iowa.
Northwestern at Michigan Pick: Northwestern +10 UNDER 52.5
The talk in Ann Arbor is that shoelace may still be hurt, but will still play. Either way the offense as of late has been less than stellar, outside beating up on an awful Minnesota defense who gives up 30 points a game on average in the B1G Ten. Northwestern has been a tough team to play against this year, and has shown they can match up with any team in the conference. The points are a bonus as I have Northwestern winning outright. I have the final score 24-20 Northwestern.
Minnesota at Illinois Pick: Minnesota -3 UNDER 47
Illinois sucks. I have the final score Minnesota 27-17.
Penn State at Nebraska Pick: Penn State +8.5 OVER 52
This will be a great game to watch. Both teams have the ability to score, with flashes of toughness on defense. I look for a back and forth game, with Nebraska pulling out the win, but not enough to cover. I have the final score 31-28 Nebraska.
Wisconsin at Indiana Pick: Indiana +7.5 OVER 55
Indiana has shown they score with the bet of them in this conference, but their defense has shown they cant stop a thing. Wisconsin will be able to run all over the place come Saturday. I have the final score 31-27 Wisconsin.
The National Football League
again, no fluff just picks.
Giants at Bengals Pick: Giants -4 OVER 48.5 Final Score 30-21 Giants
Titans at Dolphins Pick: Dolphins -6 OVER 44 Final Score 31-14 Dolphins
Bills at Patriots Pick: Patriots -11 OVER 52 Final Score 42-17 Patriots
Lions at Vikings Pick: Vikings +2 UNDER 47.5 Final Score 24-23 Vikings
Raiders at Ravens Pick: Ravens -7.5 OVER 46.5 Final Score 30-17 Ravens
Good Luck bettors.
