Michigan State and Iowa enter this game off misleading finals as Michigan State had a 496-355 yard edge but three Sparty turnovers led to three Notre Dame touchdowns.The Spartans simply beat themselves last week against the Irish. Iowa was out gained by Penn State 579-273 yet lost by only 2 points.Penn State had a 31-11 first down edge against Iowa last week. Three weeks ago Iowa had to rally late to take Iowa State to overtime, before finally getting the win. Two weeks ago the Hawkeyes trailed North Texas at home in the second half. Michigan States defense is holding their opponents to 171 yards per game less than their average. Iowa’s defense was on the field for 98 plays last week against Penn State. Iowa team will be totally deflated after their last play loss last week to Penn State. Great spot here for Michigan State and we are getting a great number because of last weeks misleading final scores.
Bowling Green’s team they put on the field to face their opponents offense can’t be called a defense. They are giving up an average of 549 yards per game, yes 549 yards per game. They only gave up 24 last week to Middle Tennessee which looks good until you find out Middle Tennessee had half their starting offense out with injuries. Bowling Green has No Defense. Akron’s offense has faced a very good Troy defense and two Big Ten defenses now they get to have a feast today against Bowling Green’s No Defense. Go over like Rover.

5-Unit Play. Take #623-624 Winnipeg/Edmonton GAME TOTAL OVER 60 (Saturday, September 30th at 9:30 PM ET)
Take Winnipeg/Edmonton GAME TOTAL OVER as my 4-Unit CFL Smash for Saturday. This pick falls into one of my top CFL systems and the O/U is 9-0 for the Bombers in their last 9 games when playing a team with a winning record. The O/U is 16-5 for the Bombers in their last 21 road games and the O/U is 5-1 for the Bombers in their last 6 games against a Divisional opponent. The Bombers have averaged 35.8 ppg on the road this season and the Eskimos have averaged 28.2 ppg at home this season. The Eskimos have allowed 32.7 ppg over their last 3 games and the Bombers have allowed 32.7 ppg on the road this season. I expect a lot of fireworks in this one Saturday night with two of the best offenses in the CFL going off. Play the Over.
