Fithian Fab Five: Braxton Beats Blue

By: Dennis Fithian

Picking Michigan and Michigan State: 8-13

Michigan +4 @ Ohio State: If Wolverines had played better verses the option this year I’d be tempted to pick the upset. Braxton Miller is the difference.

Prediction: Ohio State 30 Michigan 20

 

Michigan State -8 @ Minnesota: Picking Spartans this year with or without a betting line has been painful.

Prediction: Michigan State 20 Minnesota 10

 

 

College football best bests: 17-7

LSU -12 @ Arkansas: Hogs are a complete mess. I’d be tempted to take the Tigers even if they were three or four touchdown favorites.

Prediction: LSU 38 Arkansas 13

 

Other Best Bets:

Georgia Tech +13 @ Georgia

Oklahoma State +7 @ Oklahoma

Stanford -2 @ UCLA

USC +7 vs. Notre Dame

Florida +7 @ Florida State

 

 

Detroit Lions season predictions: 6-4

Detroit +3.5 vs. Houston: Lions can hang with Texans just like they did with the Packers on Sunday.

Painful as it will be, I’ll take the Lions with the points, but the visitors will win.

Prediction: Houston 34 Detroit 31

 

Pro best bets season: 17-17

Denver -11.5 vs. Kansas City: Chiefs took their one shot on MNF. Now, they’ll be a good bet to lose all their games verses the number from here on out.

Prediction: Denver 28 KC 10

 

Tampa Bay +1 vs. Atlanta: Falcons injuries and turnover problems are a concern.

Prediction: Tampa Bay 23 Atlanta 20

 

Seattle -3 @ Miami: Lots of money moving on the Seahawks since early in the week.

Prediction: Seattle 20 Miami 16

 

Two other best bets:

Arizona -2 vs. St Louis

 

New York -2.5 vs. Green Bay
