Early lines are out for next saturday, the first day of league play in the Big 10. These are not predictions or picks.....and the road team is listed first.
Wisco -6.5 at UM.....wow, almost a TD home dog. Hmmm
Illini +15.5 at Penn St.....finally Nits play a team with a pulse. Prime time ABC game.
Minny +19 at Ohio St....Gophers have a sneaky offense so far this year, but gotta wonder if they can handle the upgrade in competition. This could be high scoring.
MSU -8 at Indiana....Sparty laying a lot of points on the road in this one, but I would not bet against Ringer going over the 200 yard mark for the third straight week. IU is soft and MSU should be able to name their score by just banging away with Javon.
NW +7 at Iowa......there used to be a time when Iowa was automatic at home, but I think this game is a coin flip.
Purdue +3.5 at ND......if Purdue's offense is clicking, I dont know if the Irish can keep up. But, PU has a terrible history in South Bend and have been at their worst the last three years when playing a good team. Alright, cue the 'is ND even a good team' arguments.
Any thoughts on these games.....Discuss.
