Not very many games of interest going on this week. Ohio State sure does pump up their early schedule with patsies, though. They are -34, -28, -13.5, and -49.5 in their first four games for an average of -31.5. I would be surprised if any team in the country has an average spread like that.
B1G Football: Week 3 Against the Spread
The B1G went a respectable 7-5 ATS last weekend; while Michigan did not obviously fare as well. Wisconsin is the only team left with a perfect record ATS.

Penn State is the big mover; the line has increased 7 points since the open. Indiana opened as the underdog, but the market has determined that game is a toss-up. We have our first B1G match-up with Purdue @ Wisconsin. Of course with a current spread 23.5 it doesn't really set off fireworks for the start of league play. Can Michigan recover and win by 3 TD's? They may be able to cover that O by themselves.

If MCalibur, or anyone else, has the missing O/U I'll update them as they come in.
