Against The Spread Pick
The Northwestern Wildcats and Rutgers Scarlet Knights have been inconsistent coming into this game which does give me some pause. Combined these two teams have lost eight games in a row, but there is no doubt the Scarlet Knights are the better team. Even though they are better, they aren’t this many points better. They haven’t won a game by more than 11 points in any of their last nine games. The Wildcats can make games dirty and on the season they are giving up only 67.8 points per game. The Rutgers are also giving up 69 points per game over the last five. The Wildcats are going to make it dirty enough, and that will be the difference. Back the Wildcats to cash in this game.
Over Under Pick
Part of Northwestern making it close will be them slowing down the pace. They know they don’t want to get into a shootout, and they are going to make life tough in this one. The under is 6-2 in the Wildcats last eight games overall. The under is 9-3 in the Scarlet Knight’s last 12 games overall. Back the under to cash with ease on Sunday.
