Observations

Even though Nebraska and Iowa covered @ Wyoming and vs. UL-M, respectively, on Saturday, the sportsbooks must not have liked how they looked doing it. Both teams dropped ~3 points relative to all of last weekend's winners, except for Illinois (which had the ugliest win of the weekend).

Illinois also lost 3 points based on their lackluster win over Western Michigan.

Expected point spreads for Northwestern's Conference Schedule:

NU (+8) @ Illinois - This line has moved a point in favor of Illinois, likely a result of Fitz's waffling re: Persa's playing time. Bettors also might have been impressed by Jeff Allen's jab-uppercut combo.

Michigan @ NU (+3.5)

NU (+4) @ Iowa

Penn St @ NU (+2)

NU (-11) @ Indiana

NU (+14) @ Nebraska

Minnesota @ NU (-12)

Michigan St @ NU (+3.5)

 

*Purdue's rank is only speculative, as they are the only team with no conference games available on which to bet. I decided on this rank for them based on their being 13-point home dogs (+16 neutral) to Notre Dame this weekend. I then arbitrarily decided that Notre Dame is in between Nebraska and Michigan/OSU. Not too scientific I know.
