Year To Date Record: 61-62 ATS
Upset Record: 16-25 +$615
Underdog Pick #1: Penn State Nittany Lions (+140 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers, Saturday, 12:00 ET: We just can’t even remotely imagine how hard it is going to be for Penn State to end this regular season with all of the garbage that went on in Happy Valley over the course of the last eight days. That being said, there is still a football game to be played, and we think that the players are going to be fired up to get something positive going after a week of disgust. After all, none of them had anything to do with this sex scandal, but they all had a hand in the team’s awesome start to the season. Say what you want about Penn State, but the fact of the matter remains true. This team has one loss this year, and it came against Alabama. Nebraska lost last week to Northwestern, a game which many think was very, very eye-opening. The Cornhuskers have their faults, and those faults could be exposed in a brutal game in University Park on Saturday. Don’t be shocked if the hosts move within one victory of the Big Ten Championship Game.
Underdog Pick #2: Iowa Hawkeyes (+115 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Michigan State Spartans, Saturday 12:00 ET: Apparently, the oddsmakers didn’t learn their lesson last week when they made the Hawkeyes underdogs against the Wolverines. We’re sorry, but Michigan State isn’t significantly better, if better at all, than Iowa. Going into Kinnick Stadium is always tough, and the hardnosed Hawkeyes are now 6-0 in this building this year. The Big Ten Leaders Division will become a heck of a lot more interesting once this upset happens, as there could be four teams that are 4-2 going into the last weeks of the regular season, and none of the four might control their own destiny for going to the Big Ten title game.
Underdog Pick #3: Washington Huskies (+350 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ USC Trojans, Saturday, 3:45 ET: The Huskies, for whatever reason, have had the number of the Trojans over the course of the last two years, and we just don’t see how USC is winning this game at least four out of five times. QB Keith Price has had a fantastic season, and if you take away what he and QB Matt Barkley both did last week, you wouldn’t know which quarterback is which just by looking at the numbers. Sure, the Trojans are the better team in this game, and they have a heck of a lot of potential, but they have played down to the level of their opponents quite a bit this year. If they play down to what their perception is of U-Dub, the Huskies are going to bite them. This is a very, very good Washington team.
Underdog Pick #4: Minnesota Golden Gophers (+2000 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Wisconsin Badgers, Saturday, 3:30 ET: Why not, right? Wisconsin still hasn’t won a road game all season long, and over the course of the last two weeks, the Gophers have beaten Iowa and nearly beaten Michigan State. This is a team that is clearly starting to play better ball under Head Coach Jerry Kill, and considering the fact that this is a rivalry game for Paul Bunyan’s Axe, an award that hasn’t been in Minneapolis in nearly a decade, you can bet that the Golden Gophers are going to give it everything that they’ve got. They have to have at least a 5% chance of winning this game.
