Underdog Pick #1: Illinois Fighting Illini (+450 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Wisconsin Badgers, Saturday, 12:00 ET: This is a dangerous, dangerous game for the Badgers. Now, it’s true that Wisconsin is clearly the better of these two teams, and it is clear that if the visitors come to play, they will come out on the right side of this one. QB Nathan Scheelhaase doesn’t give up on his team though, and neither will Head Coach Ron Zook in spite of the fact that the Illini have lost four straight games. The pressure is going to mount on the Badgers in this one, as they know that they are two wins away from playing for the Big Ten title. A slip though, and it could all be over with. Don’t be surprised if this one comes down to the wire.

Underdog Pick #2: Virginia Cavaliers (+600 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Florida State Seminoles, Saturday 7:30 ET: Are we nuts going against the Seminoles on their home turf, especially straight up on the moneyline? The Cavvies have always had a good go of it against FSU, including posting the first win in ACC history against the Seminoles. These two teams are both 7-3 SU, and they’re both 5-5 ATS. QB EJ Manuel and the Noles didn’t play their best game last week against the Hurricanes, and if they play that way again in this one, they could be in a heck of a lot of trouble.

Underdog Pick #3: North Carolina State Wolfpack (+245 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Clemson Tigers, Saturday, 3:30 ET: The Wolfpack aren’t all that great, but we just see the handwriting on the wall in this game for Clemson. The Tigers were lucky to survive last week against Wake Forest to play for the ACC Championship Game, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t win another game this season. It really seems like opposing defenses have figured out this offense with QB Tajh Boyd and WR Sammy Watkins. The problem might be that the offense isn’t good enough to win this game for NC State, but on Senior Day in a game which could put it in the bowl game, we think that that could be enough to get it over the hump against an overrated Clemson team.

Underdog Pick #4: Nebraska Cornhuskers (+160 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Michigan Wolverines, Saturday, 12:00 ET: The Huskers were able to survive one big road test last week in Happy Valley against an emotional Penn State team, and now, they are coming on the road to the Big House in one of the biggest games of the season in the Big Ten. Nebraska will keep its Big Ten title hopes alive with a victory, while Michigan needs some help to keep on believing that it can get to the Rose Bowl. QB Denard Robinson and his offense just doesn’t feel like it has been able to get around the rest of the Big Ten this year, and this might be the toughest defense of the bunch in the Black Shirts that it is facing. Nebraska will win its first trip into the Big House this week.

Underdog Pick #5: Rutgers Scarlet Knights (+125 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Cincinnati Bearcats, Saturday, 12:00 ET: This line just doesn’t make any sense to us whatsoever. Cincinnati won’t have QB Zach Collaros in this one, and it has to come on the road to Piscataway in arguably the biggest game in the history of Rutgers football. If the Scarlet Knights can win this game, they might be on their way to the Orange Bowl and the BCS for the first time in their history. WR Mohamed Sanu just doesn’t have an equal on the field in terms of talent, and that should show in a big way. It won’t be the prettiest game in the world, but if Rutgers can keep UC off of the scoreboard as we expect, the Scarlet Knights will get the ‘W’.
