Minnesota +12.5 @ MICHIGAN 7 pm, New Mexico +6 @ UNLV 10 pm
Minnesota +12.5 @ MICHIGAN 7 pm. The Wolverines (17-1), are coming off their first loss, probably a little ornery, and beastly good at home. 12.5 is a big give to a good 14-4 Golden Gophers team, but their two Big Ten road losses have been by 20 and 27 and Michigan’s home Big Ten wins have been by 19, 13, 9 and 20. We’re going to give our Teaser 5 to Michigan and make them -7.5 and pair them up New Mexico +6 @ UNLV 10 pm. The Lobos are 9-9 and struggle on the road. The Runnin’ Rebels (10-7), have won three straight Mountain West games at home. The two teams are fairly even on paper so we could probably push this one either way but will move UNLV to -1 and hope they continue their Thomas & Mack Center dominance.
If you don’t like one of these games, you might try Buffalo -8 @ NORTHERN ILLINOIS 8 pm. Buffalo (17-1) is not bothered by the road. Northern Illinois (10-8) is coming off back-to-back losses to Central Michigan and Kent St. The Bulls teased to -3 seems like a gift, which is always concerning.
