Behind Enemy Lines in NCAA Football

Yo, this is Nicky and it’s time to pack the lunch pail. There is some real value on the board as we look to improve on our 10-3 record this season so let’s get to it. I actually like two games on Saturday where I see some real value. Not in any particular order, I like Michigan State (+7.5) yea, a serious home dog, but I think Wisconsin’s first road trip will be a rough one and like State to roll back-to-back wins or at least keep it very close. I know the Badgers have a powerful running game but the Spartans proved they can contain a good running attack last week when they shut down Robinson and the Wolverines. This will be a great game to watch and an even better game to tease.

I also like the Fighting Irish (-6.5 buy the hook) at home to finally beat USC. Notre Dame has not won a big game in a while and particularly a rivalry game but I look for that trend to change. This is not the same Trojan defense we have seen in prior years and they give up a ton of yards and even more points. A secondary that’s ranked below 100 will give up some huge plays and I like taking the home team down in this one. That’s a second helping of chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
