Week 3 Lines

Tonight (Friday)


All lines courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Odds/lines subject to change. T&Cs apply. See for details.

Virginia hasn’t quite figured it out under Tony Elliott and they’re 0-3-1 vs the over in games on the road under his stead. Mike Locksley’s Maryland squads are 2-4 against the over in non-conference home games. UNDER 47

Oh buddy. Illinois. Down bad for Bert is dead. I can’t bring myself to bet them on the bounce back. But 14.5 points is steep and each of Illinois’ games have eclipsed 50 points. OVER 48.5

Jeff Brohm’s Purdue was 5-0 against the spread versus Indiana. Louisville -10

62 is so many points! Still no bet!

I was trying to find a way to bet the over in the Iowa game and just can’t seem to find it as it’s 0-4 in Game 3s since Brian Ferentz took over. Holding my nose and going UNDER 42 (Yes, I know I predicted otherwise in The Pants Predict)

Want to smash the Minnesota auto-under but am going to just see how this one plays out.

If Pat Fitzgerald were still leading this team, I’d go wild and pick them straight up (4-1 as non-conference road underdogs) but ... they are not.

No thoughts about VT/Rutgers other than I think I like this Rutgers team!

OSU feels really sideways. They need another week or two to ferment, IMO.

Mark Dantonio was rehired only to beat Iowa. 16.5 points is a lot to give up on the road but I really like this Huskies team. Washington -16.5

Um, under Thomas Hammond, Northern Illinois is 6-2 against the spread on the road. NIU +11

It’s a huge game for the Boilermakers and they’ll notch the win under the lights. Purdue +120

We’re gonna continue holding tight on Michigan as well. Huge number!

BONUS: We will be attending our son’s first Arkansas Razorback game this weekend and my wife wanted something else to cheer for (see: sadness about no Streak for the Cash). We’re taking the Hogs -8.5 and OVER 28.5. Under Sam Pittman, they’re 7-2 against the spread in non-conference games and have scored over 28 6 of 9 times.
