Best Bets In The Big Ten For Week 8

While it's only for fun, this is where you should come in order to see what picks to play in the Big Ten.

Check out what we see as the best bets in the Big Ten this weekend. Having said that, this is where we’ll place what is certain to become the disclaimer that these are just game picks. Money isn't being placed on these picks and never will be.


Michigan (-7.5)

The Wolverines will take on the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday morning. This game is usually a slugfest. This year the two squads are going in opposite directions. The Wolverines are going to win in a rare romp.


Iowa Hawkeyes (-9)

Iowa takes on Maryland on Saturday. While the Terapins are a better team than they have been in recent years, Iowa is on a real roll. Their offense is better than expected and their defense is the usual solid squad. They may not blow out Maryland, but the Hawkeyes will win by at least 10.


Nebrasaka (-4.5)

The Huskers are 0-6. It's hard to understand why they would also qualify as a "best bet", but here they are anyway. The Nebraska football team is going to win its first game of the year. They're going to win by a touchdown or more.


Penn State (-14)

The Penn State Nittany Lions have struggled in the last two weeks. This is the week they return to looking like one of the best teams in the Big Ten. The Nittany Lions are going to romp over the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday by more than two touchdowns.


Ohio State (-12)

The Ohio State Buckeyes clash with the Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday and they are only 12 point favorites. The Buckeyes are going to blast the Boilermakers by at least three touchdowns.
