Who's Stealing Money From Whom?

Rather than continue my disastrous streak of "I AM SURE THIS BET WILL WORK/(wait two days)/OH GOD NO THE PAIN," it's time to hand the reins over to you, the readers. That way I won't have to listen to your fucking nagging as we all steer the gambleboat straight into the iceberg, together. It's the American way or something.

So here's the deal. One bet a week, put up for debate. Winners get a free car* and a mindblowing slobjob from Hawkeye State**, losers owe their bookies $20 or whatever you guys plop down on each game.

THIS WEEK: Minnesota at Purdue

Minnesota: #25 AP, 6-1 (2-1), just beat Illinois 27-20.
Purdue: unranked, 2-5 (0-3), just lost to Northwestern 48-26.

The line? Pick'em. A nationally ranked team goes to an imploding 2-5 doormat, and it's straight up (check that, I just double-checked and some places are favoring Purdue by 1.0). Frankly, we think this is an egregious error, as Purdue's got a QB who can barely hang onto his job and their only other star on offense was grousing about his role until he got a gag order slapped on him. Purdue just gave up 48 points to Just Northwestern, people. What in the hell is happening here? What are we missing?
