Behind enemy lines in NCAA Football week 8

Yo this is Nicky and just when we had a little mo’ going in college Oklahoma state kinda took the wind out of our sails but let’s try and get it back this week. There have been a lot of schools that look great at home but get them on the road in a hostile environment and they seem to fall apart. Needless to day that has been the achilies heel of any team ranked #1, so when I see home teams laying a little lumber I’m not afraid to step in front of the train. There are two top ten teams that are going on the road and getting points (Mizzou and Mich St.) and one laying some hefty lumber (Oregon). Of those three the best choice is Iowa (-6.5 buy the hook and get under the touchdown) hosting Michigan State. For all of you quants the numbers against the Spartans going into Kinnick stadium and getting a win are staggering. Michigan State is 1-7 ATS in its last 8 games when playing Iowa, including 1-4 ATS their last five on the road, 0-5 straight up but they kept it close one year. In short, they simply have no answer for the Hawkeyes in the cornfield and that’s not going to change. Lay the lumber and I’ll be back for the late games. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
