Quick Sunday Picks

0-2 yesterday, as I stupidly didn't give Indiana the 12 points against Illinois and lost there when Illinois only won by 2, and Iowa played about as bad as they possibly could and still only lost to the spread by 1 vs Michigan. My Big Ten record is threatening to dip below .500, and we can't have that.

Minnesota at Ohio State (-7.5), Noon, BTN

Ohio State is undefeated at home and Minnesota struggles on the road, so look for Evan Turner to have another huge game and for Ohio State to win big.

Pick: Ohio State

Penn State at Purdue (-15), 2 PM, BTN

Despite their 0-8 league record, Penn State has been 7 of those 8 games, so even though they will almost certainly lose, 15 is way too many points. Plus Purdue called off the dogs up big against Michigan last week, so even if Purdue breaks it open, Penn State should have a chance to get the deficit back under 15.

Pick: Penn State
