Went 4-6 last week to run my season total against the spread to 36-42-2. Now for another go at it. All lines courtesy of DocSports.
Purdue at Illinois (42 points) — OVER – I like these two teams to top the total. Illinois could score most of this on its own.
Illinois 31, Purdue 17
Michigan State (+6.5) at Iowa – This game seems pretty evenly matched to me, with Iowa getting the edge due to the home field. I like the Spartans to keep it close but the Hawkeyes save the BCS some controversey.
Iowa 23, Michigan State 20
Northwestern at Indiana (58.5 points) — OVER – I like the total here as well as I think both teams should march down the field all day, unless weather mucks it up. Northwestern pulls out a fun one.
Northwestern 42, Indiana 38
Arkansas (-20.5) vs. Vanderbilt – The Hogs will hit on all cylinders vs. the hapless Commodores. Huge game for Ryan Mallett and his receiving corps.
Arkansas 49, Vanderbilt 20
Auburn (-7) at Mississippi – I don’t think the Tigers will have a let down. Cam Newton is a great insurance policy against that. Another good game for Michael Dyer.
Auburn 34, Mississippi 24
San Diego State (-10) at Wyoming – The Cowboys have been playing well lately, but the Aztecs continue their rebound under Hoke and get the cover thanks to a good game from Ryan Lindley.
San Diego State 35, Wyoming 21
Stanford (-7) at Washington – Battle of future NFL quarterbacks will be won by Andrew Luck. Stanford will be just too tough and physical for the Huskies.
Stanford 45, Washington 28
Michigan (-3) at Penn State – Denard Robinson gets back on track with a big game against a rather slow Nittany Lion defense. The Michigan defense plays one of its best games of the year.
Michigan 38, Penn State 17
Utah State (+26) at Nevada – The Aggies keep this one close for a while and get the cover in the end.
Nevada 45, Utah State 31
Florida International (-4) at Florida Atlantic – FIU wins this battle going away.
FIU 31, Florida Atlantic 10
