Thursday Quick Picks

1-1 last night for me as Illinois got back on track against hapless Penn State, but Iowa put up a good fight before falling to Ohio State by less than the expected 11 points.

Wisconsin at Purdue (-9.5), 6 PM, ESPN

Since I instituted the never pick against Bo Ryan rule, Bo's Badgers have gone 0-3 against the spread. So I'm abandonding that rule for the future. That being said, I'm still taking Wisconsin in this game because they haven't been blown out all season and I don't think tonight will be any different. Purdue is playing very well and will probably win, but 9.5 is a lot of points to give.

Pick: Wisconsin
