Against The Spread Pick

A Sunday afternoon Big Ten match-up will see the Minnesota Golden Gophers take on the Northwestern Wildcats. Minnesota no doubt has some impressive wins on their resume, however they have been really struggling, losing three in a row and five of their last six. The Gophers are now 6-9 in the Big Ten, and this is a game they must have if they are going to make any noise down the stretch. Northwestern on the other side are 1-14 in the Big Ten and clearly are the worst team. The Wildcats have lost 10 in a row and not much is going to change in this game. The Gophers beat this Wildcats team 77-68 in the first meeting and I lean to Minnesota to dominate this team on the road.

Over Under Pick

I really do not like this total because Northwestern is involved. The Wildcats average just 64.9 points per game and are very inconsistent. Same goes with the Golden Gophers, who are only averaging 69.3 points per game. The under is 7-1 in the last 8 games for the Gophers and the under is also 9-4 in 13 Northwestern home games. Again, I would probably stay away from this total, but it would be a lean to the under.
