Coming in at 33/29 so I need some wins today. I don’t know why I expect to do better, I haven’t changed up anything. I’m not doing more research or following experts. Nope, I just do the minimum amount of looking at the teams and then shoot from the hip. Sometimes I hit my foot.
Okay, let’s get in to the match-ups.
Rutgers @ Minnesota – Minnesota is a 19-point favorite and they win by 20 and cover. Oh Gophers, how could you? You’re not very golden on this day. It took a last second FG to win this one. Against Rutgers. Yes, Rutgers. Sheesh. Minnesota wins by two and does not cover. 0-1 / 33-30
#10 Wisconsin @ Iowa – Wisconsin is favored by 4.5-points but they win by seven and cover. The Hawkeyes never scored a TD. It’s not the Badgers offense was romping either. Classic B1G defensive battle just like the good old days. Wisconsin wins by eight and covers. 1-1 / 34-30
Indiana @ Northwestern – Northwestern if a 2.5-point favorite but they win by 10 and cover. Bingo, I nailed this one. On. The. Nose. Bam! Nice job Wildcats. Northwestern wins by 10 and covers. 2-1 / 35-30
Illinois @ #3 Michigan – Michigan is a 39-point favorite but they win by 51 and cover. Of course Harbaugh and the Wolverines didn’t cover. Fucking hate Michigan. Michigan wins by 33 and does not cover. 2-2 / 35-31
Purdue @ #8 Nebraska – Nebraska is a 24-point favorite and they win by 27 an cover. Really Nebraska, that was not your a good showing. You’re #8 in the country and you are down to the Boilermakers at the half? At least you won in the end. Nebraska wins by 13 and does not cover. 2-3 / 35-32
#2 Ohio State @ Penn State – Ohio State is a 19.5-point favorite and they win by 21 and cover. Wow, what an upset. The Lions score 17 in the fourth and the Bucks score zilch. Welcome to the club Penn State, you are one of two B1G schools to beat Urbz’ Ohio State squad. Ohio State loses by three and does not cover. 2-4 / 35-33
Michigan State @ Maryland – Michigan State is favored by three but they win by a score and cover. Just kill me. Please. Fuck. Michigan State loses (again) by 11 and does not cover. 2-5 / 35-34
This season is really sucking the very life from my soul. What is up with the world. My picks are terrible and MSU is terrible. I’ll continue to make my picks and pull for the B1G (except for Michigan, I hate Michigan), but this is really getting difficult. Talk about a down year. Damn. Oh well, I’ll try to muster some enthusiasm and remember to…
