Whenever you need answers, consult a prophet. People have known that for centuries.
Hlastradamus is the sage, the seer, the soothsayer of college football. He is fresh off his second-straight 3-2 week for a fabulous season total of 18-17-1 against the spread. All right, fabulous is laying it on thick. But how many other 500-year-olds are getting done in the field of sports handicapping?
Oh, and the winners will flow from now until the snow flies. Actually, the winners will start to freeze up once the snow flies, but you get the idea.
Michigan State -20 vs. Purdue. The Spartans have had a bye week to rejuice. They’ll rock and roll over the Boilermakers.
Wisconsin -4 at Michigan. Dream of a Wolverines upset, Ohio State, Michigan State and Iowa. But the Badgers, while nothing special defensively, should inflict their special kind of pain against Michigan’s finesse.
Northwestern +7.5 vs. Illinois. Sure, the Wildcats are breaking in a new quarterback in Week 11, at Wrigley Field. But don’t they always have another capable quarterback waiting in the wings?
Texas A&M +2.5 vs. Nebraska. Saturday night, ABC, and gigged-up Aggies.
Iowa +3 vs. Ohio State. Call it a whim. Even oracles have them.
