Jack's Free Pick Saturday!

Minnesota vs. Northwestern, 02/18/2012 19:00
Point Spread: -4/-110 Northwestern

The Northwestern Wildcats are one of the most underrated teams in the country this season. Northwestern still has an outside shot at making the Big Dance, and they'll need a win Saturday and a solid finish to earn a berth.

The Wildcats will not be short on motivation tonight after losing at Minnesota in their first meeting of the season. Northwestern is 10-3 at home this season, outscoring opponents by 9.4 points/game. I look for the Gophers to suffer a hangover from their 68-78 home loss to Ohio State last time out.

Minnesota is 1-11 ATS when playing against a marginal winning team (Win Pct. 51% to 60%) over the last 2 seasons. The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Gophers are 6-18-2 ATS in their last 26 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record.

The home team has won 10 straight meetings in this series. The home team is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings, and the Wildcats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home meetings with the Gophers. Bet Northwestern Saturday.
