For Entertainment Purposes Only: Week 12

Money on fire

Time flew by this week, so I'll have to hit the high points.

Let's make this quick and hope that it works out for the best.

(That's what she said.)

Ohio State at Wisconsin (-2)

We'll start with one of multiple lines that just look off to me. An undefeated team that is getting points this late in the year? That's telling you to take the Badgers.

Pick: Wisky leaves Brutus with a hangover.

Utah State (-3) at Louisiana Tech

Darling LaPoly a home underdog? Yes, the Aggies are that good.

Pick: USU by a touchdown.

Northwestern at Michigan State (-6.5)

The Wildcats' tour of the Great Lakes State got off to a deflating start last week in Ann Arbor as NU managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory versus Michigan. This week, the Wildcats travel to rough and tumble East Lansing to take on Sparty, who needs a win just to get bowl-eligible.

Pick: Karl Welzein special for MSU – full spread… the works, really.

California at Oregon State (-14.5)

I've had some success fading Cal the last few weeks and see no reason to stop now. The Golden Bears have nothing to play for besides the pride that they lost long ago.

Pick: Beavers.

Iowa State at Kansas (+5)

Charlie Weis' team has kept playing hard despite the dismal record. His players must have seen him in action at Burrito King.

Pick: KU outright.

(Last Week: 2-3; Overall: 27-28)
