Misery is a dish best served piping hot and with pita bread. Dip deep in to that misery to make sure you get the good stuff at the bottom. Yum.
Purdue @ Indiana – Indiana is a 21-point favorite and they win by 17 and do not cover. I had a feeling the Hoosiers would have to work for the win, and I was right. Indiana wins by two and does not cover. 1-0 / 50-46
Illinois @ Northwestern – Northwestern is favored by 16.5 but they in by 21 and cover. BINGO! Nailed it on this pick. Northwestern wins by 21 and covers. 2-0 / 51-46
Rutgers @ Maryland – Maryland is a 14-point favorite but they win by 10 and do not cover. Rutgers is predictable but maybe I didn’t give the Terps enough credit. Maryland wins by 18 and covers. 2-1 / 51-47
#3 Michigan @ #2 Ohio State – Ohio State is favored by 5-points but they win by 17 and cover. Okay, maybe I was a little optimistic about the Wolverines sucking and the Buckeyes being very good. Yes, both teams are very good. But oh how I hate Michigan and oh how happy I am for them to lose and hopefully fall out of the CFPs. This was a good game, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Also, what’s up with J.T. Barrett, he played like a scared freshman third-stringer put in after #1 and #2 went down? Ohio State wins by three in OT and doesn’t cover. 2-2 / 51-48
Michigan State @ #7 Penn State – Penn State is a 12-point favorite but they lose by one and do not cover. Ugh. It was a season to forget. Penn State wins by 33 and covers. 2-3 / 51-49
Minnesota @ #6 Wisconsin – Wisconsin is favored by 14-points and they win by 24 and cover. The Badgers are my favorite team in the B1G right now, I hope they shank the Lions in the B1G Championship, and I think they will. Wisconsin wins by 14 and pushes. 2-3 / 51-49
This was a long, painful season packed with frustration, injuries, disappointment, injuries, questions, injuries and failure. I’m so happy it’s finally over and I can get off of this terrible ride and begin the forgetting process. My picks were pretty lame as well as I finish the season 51-49, just two wins over .500. My goal of 60% still unreached. Maybe next year? Definitely next year.
Good luck to Penn State and Wisconsin in the B1G Championship Game. I’m taking the Badgers by 17, but don’t listen to me, I’m only half right.
No matter what, always remember to…
