The Big Ten faces a pretty pathetic slate of teams, with only Michigan and Minnesota (kind of Penn State with Temple in their first season as a Big East team) facing BCS opponents. Thankfully conference play starts next weekend, so things should get more interesting. Caesars lines this week:
Syracuse @ Minnesota (-1)
Louisiana Tech @ Illinois (-2.5)
Michigan @ Notre Dame (-5.5)
Temple @ Penn State (-7.5)
Central Michigan @ Iowa (-15.5)
UTEP @ Wisconsin (-18)
Eastern Michigan @ Michigan State (-33)
UAB @ Ohio (-38)
South Dakota @ Northwestern (FCS)
Idaho State @ Nebraska (FCS)
Who looks like the best bet? Michigan is the only team not favored this weekend, do we upset Notre Dame? Does it get worse for the rest of the Big Ten? Can Minnesota start out 4-0 while covering their one point spread? Does Penn State finally manage to lose to Temple?
Also, O/U for Michigan v. Notre Dame is 50. Which do you take?
