Picking Michigan and Michigan State: 4-7

Michigan -28 vs. Illinois: UM is coming off their best played and coached game of the year last week at Purdue. Wolverines roll, but not by 28 points.

Prediction: Michigan 35 Illinois 10

 

Michigan State -8 Iowa: State will win, but they haven’t shown the ability to blow somebody off the field.

Prediction: Michigan State 20 Iowa 14

 

 

College football best bests: 5-4

East Carolina -17.5 vs. Memphis: East Carolina owns Memphis the last decade in this series.

Prediction: East Carolina 45 Memphis 17

 

Florida -9 @ Vanderbilt: Gators beats up Vandy even without a championship team.

Prediction: Florida 35 Vanderbilt 21

 

Ball State -3 vs. Western Michigan: Broncos with QB problems. Take the home team.

Detroit Lions season predictions: 1-3

Detroit +3 1/2 @ Philly: Eagles have been coughing up the ball. The Lions have been giving away games on special teams. Game comes down to scoring in the red zone. Take the Lions and the points. Nice if you are a gambler. Terrible if you’re a Lions fan.

Prediction: Philly 23 Detroit 20

 

Pro best bets season: 6-7
