Minnesota +2.5 over Purdue (win)
Last week Bowling Green came out of Minnesota with a shocking upset. Sometimes teams just have games where nothing goes right. We have to remember that game has nothing to do with this game and conference play is a different animal. Both teams are limited this year on offense so I expect a lower scoring football game. Minnesota really got hit hard with the injury bug when star running back Mohamed Ibrahim went down for the year, but the Gophers running back issues are nothing compared to what Purdue is dealing with today. Zander Horvath is out most of the year and King Doerue is now out. Jack Plummer is not much of a running QB so this offense is very limited. Minnesota might have lost a true head scratcher last week, but they have won 7 of the last 8 games in this meeting including 3 straight. This team has more talent on both sides of the ball and you know they will be super focused today after what happened last week. Take Minnesota.

Arkansas +16 over Georgia (loss)
KJ Jefferson has been incredible this year leading the Razorbacks to a 4-0 record. Jefferson is a little banged up, but should play today. Georgia is an outstanding defense, but Arkansas has a lot of great defensive players of their own as this is a veteran unit that is deep on all three levels. Georgia runs the ball well , but they don’t have the great skill players just yet. This team lost more than half of their defense from last year, but they have reloaded nicely. We will find out today if that reload is as legit as advertised so far. Arkansas has a lot of offensive talent and can matchup with any SEC team when it comes to speed. I think this is too many points. Take Arkansas.

Wisconsin -2.5 over Michigan (loss)
Wisconsin has won the last 4 matchups in this series. Paul Chryst has owned Jim Harbaugh, but getting into past history can get you beat in sports betting. Here is the main question. Can Michigan play four full quarters of football? Last week they looked awful in the second half to Rutgers. When you are letting a team like the Scarlet Knights beat you in second half adjustments you are in trouble. The Badgers have a physical offensive line and they will slow the game down by running the football. I just don’t know if I trust this Wolverines offense or offensive line just yet. Michigan has yet to play on the road and the noise of this crowd might set them back on a few drives today. Take Wisconsin.

Ole Miss +14.5 over Alabama (loss)
I think the big teams in the SEC are overinflated this year and the talent gap just isn’t as big as years past. Matt Corral is a QB that will be playing on Sunday’s. This team has so many running back weapons and tons of guys that can catch the football. Alabama lost a lot of talent from last year. It obvious that big programs like this simply reload, but this is a big game and I am just wondering who is going to have the Najee Harris like 5 touchdown game from last year? Is Bryce Young capable of playing mistake free? Ole Miss is going to score. This is the same offense from last season so the question becomes can Alabama match that and can they do it by over 2 touchdowns? The Rebels have the offensive talent to make this one heck of a football game. Take Ole Miss.

Oklahoma/Kansas State Over 53 (win)
Kansas State showed us last week that losing a few key starters on defense makes them vulnerable as Oklahoma State who is not know for offense beat them up last week. Will Howard looked a little shaky, but he made some good plays for the Wildcats and got a big road trip start which will help him this week. The Sooners behind QB Spencer Ratler are stacked on offense and should have an offensive explosion today. There are simply too many players on this offense for KState to stop. The Wildcats have offensive talent, they have a lighting bug running back in Duece Vaughn that will burn you if you give him a step and they have a great special teams return game. I think we are going to see a fun offensive football game today. Take the Over.
