Picking Michigan and Michigan State: 8-11

Michigan -16.5 vs Iowa: Senior day in Ann Arbor without knowing if Denard Robinson can contribute on the field. Michigan needs to work on it’s running game and come up with better fits

on defense against the run. Wolverines better just worry about getting the win.

Prediction: Michigan 27 Iowa 17

 

Michigan State -7  vs Northwestern: MSU’s defense can handle the Cats two player team on offense. Can Northwestern handle Leveon Bell?

Prediction: Michigan State 20 Northwestern 10

 

College football best bests: 17-7

USC -3 vsUCLA: High scoring affair that will be decided on special teams.

UCLA 40 USC 38

 

Wisconsin -2.5 vs Ohio State: Buckeyes are playing for a perfect season that is ruined by being on probation. Buckeyes linebackers will have a busy day stopping the run.

Prediction: Ohio State 30 Wisconsin 28

 

LSU -19.5 vs Mississippi: Love the points.

Prediction: LSU 26 Ole Miss 13

 

Other Best Bets:

Marshall -3 vs Houston

Utah State -3 Louisiana Tech

    

 

Detroit Lions season predictions: 5-4

Detroit +3 vs Green Bay: Lions still searching for a complete game. Ndamukong Suh has to have a monster game on defense or his reputation takes a hit. Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson have to out duel Aaron Rodgers.

Tall task for anybody.

Prediction: Green Bay 35 Detroit 27

 

Pro best bets season: 16-14

 

Tampa Bay -1 # Carolina: Story of the last month is the play of Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman and rookie running back Doug Martin. That story continues against a Panthers team that is a mess.

Prediction: Tampa Bay 30 Carolina 23

 

St Louis -3.5 vs NJ Jets: Rams grind it out against the most disappointing team in the NFL this season.

Prediction: St. Louis 23  NJ Jets 17

 

Atlanta -10.5 vs Arizona: Falcons coming off their first loss of the season are at home against a team with a no name quarterback and no running game.

Prediction: Atlanta 35 Arizona 17

 

Baltimore -3.5 @ Pittsburgh: This game was coming down to a field goal either way if both QB’s were healthy. Big Ben is out. Easy pick.

Baltimore 26 Pittsburgh 16
