Week eight over/unders are up and that means MGoBlog's 238947324th best weekly post is back. Last week: Wisconsin (+2.5) upset Purdue, while the over (50) was the correct call, Iowa (+10) pulled off an upset in EL, with the under (41) being the good call. Northwestern (-3.5) covered easily in Minneapolis but the teams failed to score 50, IU (+17) covered easily against Ohio and the over (60) looks like easy money in hindsight. In case anyone forgot, Michigan (-23.5) destroyed the spread; with no help from Illinois, the under (49.5) was the right call.
This week, from covers.com, we have:
Minnesota @ Wisconsin (-17.5 +/-45)
Purdue @ Ohio (-14.5 +/- 62)
Michigan State @ Michigan (-10.5 +/-45)
Nebraska @ Northwestern (+7 +/- 62
Indiana @ Navy (-3.5 +/-56.5)
Penn State @ Iowa (-3 +/-41)
I think the over in Columbus is low, considering Meyer will run up the score when he can and Luke Fickell is doing his best Gerg impersonation. I think IU might beat Navy straight up, and Wisconsin will be interesting; is their new life on offense for real? With the Penn State game now included, I'll say the under there looks good. From what I saw last week, Iowa played good defense and PSU's offense has been shaky (the same could be said about the reverse).
