Fithian Fab Five: Gophers No Match For UM’s Top Two QB’s

By: Dennis Fithian

Picking Michigan and Michigan State: 5-11

Michigan -11.5 @ Minnesota: Wolverines should win and win big. Unless the coaching staff decides to play the third string QB again.
Prediction: Michigan 31 Minnesota 17


Michigan State +1.5 vs. Nebraska: It’s been a long time since Michigan fans were rooting for Michigan State to win a game. Cornhuskers make one more big play than the Spartans.

Prediction: Nebraska 13 Michigan State 9



College football best bests: 14-5

Pittsburgh +16.5 @ ND: Irish are good but due for a letdown.

Prediction: ND 28 Pittsburgh 13


Alabama -9 vs. LSU: Tigers can hang and could even pull the upset.

Prediction: Alabama 20 LSU 17


Detroit Lions season predictions: 4-3

Detroit -8.5 @ Jacksonville: Lions looking for an early lead and their first half time lead of the season. Time for a break out game against a bad team.

Prediction: Detroit 35 Jacksonville 21


Pro best bets season: 11-12

Baltimore -2 @ Cleveland: Ravens are showing some cracks but are two points better than the Browns anywhere.

Prediction: Baltimore 24 Cleveland 17



Tennessee +4 vs. Chicago: Bears slid by a bad Panthers team at home last week. Time for some of that luck to turn against Chicago. **UPSET ALERT**

Prediction: Tennessee 23 Chicago 21


Seattle -5 vs. Minnesota: Two teams that at the end of the season will be 8-8. I like Seahawks every time at home this season.

Prediction: Seattle 27 Minnesota 20
