Quick Picks

- I'm too depressed from last night to provide any more NU analysis, so just picks for today. I lost last night when Michigan covered 4.5 against Michigan State.

Season records

Big Ten games: 14-13-2
Northwestern games: 10-2

Illinois at Penn State (PICK), 5:30 PM, BTN

I'm a bit surprised at this line, as I expected Illinois to be giving points. Penn State played well at Wisconsin before losing in overtime, and Illinois has lost 3 in a row, so I guess thats why. Either way, Illinois has no business losing this game and they desperately need a win, so I'll take them even though I expect this game to be close.

Pick: Illinois

Ohio State at Iowa (+11), 7:30 PM, BTN

Iowa has played well in 4 straight games, but that streak ends tonight against an angry Ohio State team coming off a disappointing loss. Look for this one to get ugly early.

Pick: Ohio State
