Since this is just going to be a list of lines, which I hope spark some Sunday night, Monday morning discussion, I am putting this info in the forum. I mean, I could stretch into a Diary, but I the purpose is served here.
Here are next week's Big 10 lines....courest caribsports.com
UM -1 at MSU......oddsmakers suddenly have a new problem on their hands. People want to bet on Michigan for the first time in a couple of years. Or Maybe they want to bet against State. Anyway this line was MSU -4 in the summer, and despite losses to CMU and ND still was MSU -3 last week. This line shocks me. I guess the wiseguy moles planted at Schembechler Hall have convinced somebody that Forcier's injury is nothing to be concerned about.
NW +6.5 at Purdue
Wisco +3 at Minny.....I kinda like the Badgers here.
Penn State -6 at Illinois.....the Illini were Phil Steele's #1 Most Improved Team this year. Oops. They we -2.5 in this game over the summer. Can you imagine what it must feel like to be stuck with one those tickets right now? FYL.
OSU -16.5 at Indiana.
Sadly no totals are out yet. I still say any games involving MSU, UM, Wisco, Purdue and Minny deserve a automatic look at the totals to get your capping week started.
