Get Gamm Big Ten BBall...
Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. In case I don't get in a blog before hand, here are the games to pick as Big Ten basketball starts off. I hope to get to some thoughts before that, but just in case, here are the games and my picks...
1/2 - Wisconsin at Michigan - The Badgers are flying high after the great win at Texas. Michigan is struggling, big time. Wisconsin 71 - Michigan 60.
1/2 - Indiana at Iowa - A nice road test for Indiana to open, but the Hoosiers are the other team to beat (MSU is the first) this Big Ten season. Indiana 76 - Iowa 59.
1/2 - Penn State at Northwestern - These are important games for these bottom feeders. Penn State is playing well right now and makes it three for three to open on the road - a rarity indeed. PSU 64 - NU 62.
1/3 - Ohio State at Illinois - The early road domination ends. Illinois 68 - OSU 63.
1/5 - Iowa at Wisconsin - Back to back openers against two of the top teams. Ouch. Wisconsin 80 - Iowa 61.
1/5 - Michigan at Purdue - Purdue is young and unpredictable, but a lot better than Michigan. Purdue 78 - Michigan 65.
1/5 - Minnesota at Michigan State - Minnesota is playing well but is untested. State has been tested plenty. Michigan State 81 - Minnesota 64.
1/6 - Northwestern at Ohio State - Ohio State bounces back in the home opener. OSU 72 - NU 58.
1/6 - Penn State at Illinois - Illinois gets off to a strong start. Penn State has the horses to compete but this one slips away. Illinois 67 - Penn State 61.
Happy New Year!
