TODAY'S FREEBIE ACTION --
*2 UNITS* MICHIGAN STATE SPARTANS (-9.5)
Michigan State just seems to own the Illini over the years, as they not only own a 9-1 ML record in the L10 meetings between the two schools, but they also have an 8-2 ATS record in that span. In fact, the Spartans hold a 11-1 ML advantage in the L12 conference battles with Illinois and they are 12-3 ATS in the L15 meetings overall. There is no reason to suggest they shouldn't be able to cover today's under double-digit spread, as not only are they 6-1 ML on the season, but all of those wins have come by double-digits. There only 2 road games this season were a 12-point win over Iowa and a 4-point loss at Notre Dame, giving them a 1-0-1 ATS record away from home in 2013. The Spartans are also 3-1-1 ATS in their L5 overall and are fresh off a shutout at Purdue, 14-0, last week. Michigan State has also been dominant on the road entirely in recent years, going 8-3 ML and 8-2-1 ATS in their L11 games in someone else's building. Even better, dating back to the 2007-08 season, they are 9-2 ML and 9-1-1 ATS in their L11 games when playing as the favorite on the road. Eight of their L9 wins in this series have also been by 10 points or more as well. Illinois is also scuffling lately, having lost 3 of their L4 games overall heading into this one, with every one of those losses by 10 points or more. Roll with the MICHIGAN STATE SPARTANS to keep up the status quo and COVER the spread in the Big Ten......
*2 UNITS* NEBRASKA HUSKERS (-10.5)
There is no doubt the Gophers have been playing some inspired ball in recent weeks -- or at least they did last week against a Northwestern squad they were heavily picked to lose to. Today they should have virtually no shot to do anything near the same against a much different, much better, Nebraska Huskers squad. Don't be fooled by the fact this game is on the Gophers home turf, they have lost to Nebraska in each of the school's 4 most recent meetings against each other, and even more shockingly, is those 4 losses have combined by a combined outcome of 183-28!! Yup, you read that right, a 155 point differential between the two teams. Sure 2 of those games came back about 25 years ago, but these two squads have met up in both of the last 2 seasons since Nebraska joined the Big Ten, and the Huskers have won those 2 games by a dominant 79-28 margin of victory in those 2 games. The Huskers have gone 2-0 in Minnesota in that recent history, also winning by an 89-14 margin in those 2 meetings. And not too mention, this Nebraska team has been playing in top form this season, posting a 5-1 ML and 4-2 ATS record and come in off a nicely polished 44-7 thrashing of Purdue on the road two weeks ago. That's right, they are also coming in off an extra week off, which has been a good thing this season and in recent years as well. The Huskers are 1-0 when they come in with an extra week off in 2013, beating Illinois 39-19 about 3 weeks ago. The Gophers may be at home, but they have been horrendous at home against the upper echelon of the Big Ten since their new stadium opened in 2009, going 1-9 ML and 3-7 ATS in their 10 home games against the likes of Michigan State, Michigan, Wisconsin, Penn State, Ohio State, Northwestern and Nebraska since TCF Bank Stadium opened in 2009. Their lone win came against Michigan State in 2009 and 2 of their covers were against Michigan State as well, with one of the covers coming as a +29.5 point underdog. If you need even further convincing, the Huskers have picked up the win 16 times in the L16 meetings between these two schools, with a perfect 9-0 ML record in their L9 in Minnesota. Roll with the NEBRASKA CORNHUSKERS as the double-digit road favorite in this one.......
*2 UNITS* HOUSTON COUGARS (+7)
Again, this seems like a good spot for a potential outright upset, but we'll roll with a good Houston Cougars squad getting a TD in points against this Rutgers team today and hopefully laugh our casher all the way to the bank. Houston should be steaming after they suffered a pretty devastating 1-point loss against a very good BYU team (that destroyed Boise State Friday night mind you) in a high-scoring shootout, 47-46. Houston was an easy cover as the +10 point dog in that home game last week, and they have been an easy casher overall dating back to last season, as they are a perfect 8-0 ATS in their L8 games overall. They also haven't failed to cover in any of their L4 games on the road in that span, covering easily in both of their two games away from Texas this season as well. They are 2-0 ATS in their only 2 games playing as the underdog this season as well and have gone a perfect 3-0 ML and ATS on the road so far in 2013. Rutgers comes in off a bye week, something they just did a couple weeks back, before their 55-52 win at SMU, in which they failed to cover the -3.5 spread. Go with the HOUSTON COUGARS to COVER the nice TD spread on the road again today.....
*2 UNITS* OVER 69.5 VANDERBILT COMMODORES @ TEXAS A&M AGGIES AND *2 UNITS* VANDERBILT COMMODORES (+17)
Don't understand the massive spread for this meeting, as the Commodores actually come in off a very impressive home win over the mighty Georgia, while Johnny Football and the Aggies can't seem to cover a spread if their lives depended on it lately. I understand the Commodores will be without their starting QB for this one, but Carter Samuels is a first year starter (2nd year transfer from Wyoming) who has tied his career high in TD with 10 but has 7 INT to go with it. Something tells me his loss won't be all that devastating when all is said and done. Manziel was banged up in the Auburn game himself, although to be honest, that probably won't have much to do with deciding the final outcome on this spread. Vanderbilt has been the listed dog 4 times this year, going 2-2, but they did cover their lone game as a road dog, although it was by the hook, as they covered a +10.5 spread in a 35-25 loss at South Carolina. This Commodores team has been pretty consistent in their scoring as well, as they have scored at least 25 points or more in every single game this season so far, and going up against an A&M defense that is ranked 112th in rushing defense (out of 123 schools / 226 YPG), 118th in passing defense (494 YPG), and 104th in points allowed (33.9 PPG). The Aggies come in off a tough 4 point loss at Auburn last week, and the last time they suffered a loss (against 'Bama in Week #3) they responded with a 42-13 drubbing of SMU on their home turf in their following game. Manziel and Co. have been downright amazing on offense, setting an FBS record by scoring 40+ points in each of their L10 games and they are averaging 42+ PPG through their first 5 home games this season. They have allowed 28 PPG or more in 6 of their 7 games this season, with 5 of those games, being 31 points or more. They come into today's contest allowing 116 points over their L3 games, with Auburn (45), Mississippi (38) and Arkansas (33) all going for 33 or more against them. If these teams can find the red zone often, there is good reason to expect this one to go Over early, as the Aggies are 2nd in the nation with 21 rushing TD when inside the 20, while the Commodores are 3rd nationally with 20. Run with the VANDERBILT COMMODORES as huge road underdogs AND also play the OVER in College Station today......
