Fresno State +2.5 @ Minnesota38% of the wagers, but 55% of the money is on Fresno. That tells me the sharps like the Bulldogs. That is for good reason – they are the team that should be favored.Fresno could have scored 100 on Idaho last week if they wanted to. They have a top 10 defense from last year and return their entire back 7. This is just a really solid team (ten wins last year), and one that most of the country doesn’t know about.Minnesota finished last year with two losses by a combined 70-0. They were a mess at QB, and still are. Minnesota’s freshman, walk-on QB completed less than 50% of his passes vs a putrid NM State team last week. The OL and running game appear to be strong, but it won’t matter as an excellent Fresno D will stack the box and force them to win by throwing. Fresno wins SU.
Nebraska -4 vs MinnRiding with Nebraska again. First off, how in the world are they favored? Doesn’t anyone know they are 0-6 and the worst Nebraska team of all time? This is the week the crack the win-column.
Nebraska has been playing better ball. They outplayed Northwestern. Before that, they put up over 500 yards on Wisconsin and Purdue. They can move the ball.
Minnesota is in a tough road stretch. They played their hearts out last week at Ohio State. Now they are on the road again to Lincoln. This is a young, mistake-prone team – especially on offense. I don’t think they will keep pace with the Nebraska offense that has been humming of late. Lay the points.
