Bill owned Stoney last week to take a lead in the weekly football picks segment going 4-1 while Stoney was a pathetic 1-4. Can Bill continue his winning ways? Here are this weeks picks.

Stoney’s Picks

Michigan -10 1/2 vs Northwestern

Who will be behind center for the Wolverines? That is the question. Personally I don’t think it makes that much of a difference because the Wildcats offense will keep this game close. Northwestern is also 6-1 against the spread when coming off an against the spread win. Michigan wins the game but wont cover
PICK NORTHWESTERN

Nebraska -7 vs Penn State

Michigan fans will be cheering their butts off for the Nittany Lions,but it won’t matter. Nebraska is almost unbeatable in Lincoln and if that is not enough try out this trend for size. Penn State is 5-17 against the spread in road games when they give up 9 or fewer points the week before. Last week was one of those weeks, giving up nine in their blowout at Purdue.
PICK NEBRASKA

Wisconsin -7 at Indiana

It’s hard to believe that if Indiana wins out they will play in the Rose Bowl. Obviously they benefit from the ineligibility of Penn State and Ohio State. I know Wisconsin is not the the Wisconsin of years gone by and I know Indiana does have a great offense. I just can’t pick Indiana in any big game that does not involve a basketball
PICK WISCONSIN

Lions -2 1/2 at Vikings

The Lions opened up as a point favorite and now they have been bet up to 2 1/2. I am sure this has something to do with the availability of Percy Harvin, who is currently listed as day to day.The trend favors the Vikings as The Lions are 0-6 against the spread when playing a team with a winning record the second half of the season the last two seasons. However,they have won two in a row and with the heavy steam on the Lions, I have to follow the money.
PICK LIONS

Bears -1 vs Texans

Clarence “Peanut “Tillman will miss the game if his wife goes into labor before the game. That could be huge, but since we don’t know when she will give birth all bets are off. I think that at home the Bears will be able to pull out the win. But there is one trend I want you to keep in mind. Over the last two seasons the Texans are 17-4 against the spread on grass fields over the last two years. That said. The Bears win and cover.
PICK BEARS

Bill’s Picks

Michigan -10 1/2 vs Northwestern

Is it Denard? Is it Devon? Does it matter? Michigan’s pass defense should rise to the occasion but I see this as a close game.
Take Northwestern and the points

Nebraska -7 vs Penn State

Nebraska is looking to hold on to the Legends Title and will not let Penn State get in their way.
Take Nebraska to cover.

Wisconsin -7 at Indiana

Who wants to be a Leader? Wisconsin should beat them by two TDs.
Take Wisconsin to cover and then some.

Lions -2 1/2 at Vikings

Lions are favored on the road and as is true every week, they need this win. Lions could run the ball against the Vikings but it won’t be enough.
Take Minnesota and the points.

Bears -1 vs Texans

This could end up being the Super Bowl but the Bears look unstoppable.
Take Chicago.
