Fithian Fab Five: Denard’s The Difference
By: Dennis Fithian
Picking Michigan and Michigan State: 5-9
Michigan -2 @ Nebraska: Seems like a coin flip game. When there’s little defense on the other side is when you take Denard Robinson on your side. Love mixing in Robinson on special teams.
Prediction: Michigan 41 Nebraska 35
Michigan State +6 @ Wisconsin: Spartan linebacker Max Bullough is a special player. MSU has nothing going offensively.
Prediction: Wisconsin 24 Michigan State 10
College football best bests: 11-5
No Illinois -8 @ Western Michigan: Broncos struggling on offense.
Prediction: No Illinois 38 Western Michigan 13
Other best bets:
Western Kentucky -6.5 @ Florida Intl
Central Florida -2 @ Marshall
Detroit Lions season predictions: 3-3
Detroit -1 vs. Seattle: Seahawks have been impressive at times this year. The Lions have not been able to put a full game together. Detroit needs to go with some no huddle to change up the tempo on offense. Holding onto the ball will help too.
Prediction: Detroit 24 Seattle 21
Pro best bets season: 9-11
Tenn -3 vs. Indy: Colts are playing above expectations but aren’t so hot against the run.
Prediction Tennessee 28 Indy 21
NYG -1 @ Dallas: Cowboys need this game but clearly the G-Men are the better squad.
Prediction: NYG 21 Dallas 17
Den -5.5 vs. NO: Obviously not the Saints year. Key for Broncos is to get out to the lead and not have to play comeback like they have all year long.
Prediction: Denver 35 NO 28
