The Battle For Fewest Points Scored Highlights Black Shoe Degenerates

Two Big Ten games could go under the already-low total this week.

NCAA Football: Central Michigan at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Man oh man, did Vegas sucker me last week! I went 0-fer for the first time in years, and two of my losses where favorites who lost the game outright. No a good week for me!

Standings

Picks

Michigan State/Northwestern Under 38 - These games have surprisingly gone over the past few years, but I don’t think there’ll be that kind of firepower in this game this time around. Both teams have exceptional defenses paired with offenses that leave much to be desired. I don’t think either team will eclipse 20, thus under 38 feels right to me. $50

Michigan/Wisconsin Under 44 - Another matchup I don’t think will have that much scoring to it. The Badgers have scored 110 points in their previous two games, but those came against teams that will be lucky to win five games this season. I expect another low scoring affair from these two. $60

Indiana -28 vs UConn - The Huskies gave Illinois a scare, and Ohio State is still scoring against Indiana, but I think those two games are not indicative of the quality of each team. I think Indiana takes out their frustrations against UConn in this one, and they probably cover by halftime. $50
