Week Six Big Ten action. Picking against the spread.
How did I do last week? 2-4 vs. the line
For the year: 14-17 vs. the line.
My selections this week …
Nebraska at Iowa (-13.5): I recommend Husker fans shop on Black Friday and not watch this. Take Herky and give the 13.5.
Ohio State (-28.5) at Illinois: Illibuck is on the line! Yes, the Illini have won two in a row. The parade stops here, but Brutus won’t cover. Take Lovie’s beard and the 28.5 points.
Maryland at Indiana (-12): The Terps haven’t played the last two weeks. Will it hurt? Help? I think this one is close. Give me Maryland and the 12 points.
Penn State at Michigan (-2): Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Could be a pick ’em. But I’ll go with Habaugh’s glasses and give the two points.
Northwestern (-13.5) at Michigan State: A letdown for the Wildcats facing a Spartan team that was off last week? I say, “yes.” Give me Sparty and the 13.5.
Minnesota at Wisconsin (-21): Cancelled. No Axe week. Too bad.
Rutgers at Purdue (-11.5): The Boilers are a double-digit fav? Hmmm. Yep, I think it all will come together from Brohm and his hat. Take Purdue, give the 11.5.
Lock of the week: Iowa -13.5.
Spread too big: Ohio State -28.5
Spread too small: Michigan -2
Avoid this game: Maryland at Indiana (-12). Terps haven’t played since Halloween. IU could endure a letdown.
