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
