To recap from last week, MSU (-16) failed to cover, beating IU by four at home. Wisconsin (-14) covered at Camp Randall over Illinois. Michigan (-3) beat the spread by a factor of about ten against Purdue, while Ohio (-4) did the same against Nebraska.
This weeks lines (from Caesars) and over/unders (covers.com):
Wisconsin @ Purdue (-2.5, 50)
Northwestern @ Minnesota (+3.5, 51)
Iowa @ Michigan State (-10, 41)
Ohio @ Indiana (+17, 60)
Illinois @ Michigan (-23.5, 49.5)
Nebraska and Penn State are off this week.
I'm somewhat surprised we're favored more heavily than Ohio. Their defense is not very good, but they should score basically at will against IU. We'll do very well against Illinois, I just don't know if I see 6.5 points of separation between the two games, even with IU playing at home. I also think the Northwestern spread is too close, I think they beat up Minnesota in Minneapolis. So, as always, how do you feel about this week?
