Northern Illinois vs. Northwestern Football Pick & Point Spread: September 6th 2014

Betting Pick: Northwestern -7 point spread (September 6th 2014)

Lowly Presby was the first victim of Northern Illinois this season. The 55-3 win, as 39 point chalk, saw the Huskies amass a 424-69 overland edge in racking up 635 yards. A +3 net TO margin sealed the deal. This is a somewhat greater challenge for a MAC team, who is playing for the first time in many years without proven signal callers in QB Harnish and QB Lynch. The tandem of QBs Hare and McIntosh will have a far greater challenge against a Big 10 defense. In this game, they will also miss the veteran experience of RB Stingily. Technicals point to the visitor, who has won 15 consecutive regular season road games and is on a spread streak of 10-2 ATS away. Meanwhile, the Wildcats are on a 3-5 SU, 1-8 ATS slide on their home field. A 5-7 SU, 3-9 ATS record of 2013 has 17 Wildcat RS hungry for redemption. Week 1 results did little to cool that fervor. The 31-24 home field loss to Cal (our UNDERDOG PLAY OF THE WEEK on these pages) saw NW battle valiantly but just fall short in their comeback effort after trailing the Bears 31-7 in the 3rd quarter. Playing with need and the momentum of that late game comeback, look for the Wildcats to secure a double digit victory against a foe whom they will not take lightly.

Utah State vs. Northern Illinois Betting Odds & Pick from Brandon Shively: December 26th 2013

Betting Pick: Utah State +1 -110 odds (December 26th 2013)

This is not the game that Northern Illinois was dreaming to play in, no question about it. They had high hopes of an undefeated season and playing in a prized BCS Bowl but after the defeat to Bowling Green, Northern Illinois will play in the Poinsettia Bowl. I feel that Utah State will be the more motivated team in this game. Utah State finished the season on a 5-0 run before losing to Fresno in the Mountain West Championship game.

Northern Illinois ran into trouble when they played Bowling Green and their top ranked MAC Defense. I like defense in bowl games and Utah State has a stout defense as well (18th in the nation overall). The Aggies only gave up 17 ppg (7th in the nation) on the season, behind a solid run defense that only is giving up 2.8 yards per rush. The secondary is solid as well as opposing quarterbacks are only completing 53% of their passes. Utah State has a solid running game and they will have success against a sub-par Northern Illinois Run ‘D’ that is giving up 150 yards per game on the ground.

I like the better defense in Utah State this game playing against a deflated team in Northern Illinois.

Bowling Green vs. Northern Illinois Betting Odds & Pick from Joe Gavazzi: December 6th 2013

Joe Gavazzi - College Football PicksBowling Green vs. Northern Illinois
Betting Pick: Northern Illinois -2.5 -110 odds (December 6th 2013)

There are 35 Bowl Games this year, meaning 70/125 lined teams will participate. It’s a big deal. There is extra practice times for the teams, a monstrous payout to the schools, and nice gifts for the players. Everybody wins which is no small part why the powers that be have been resistant to go to a playoff system. To qualify for a Bowl, you must have 6 wins against division schools with a .500 or better record.

I have released EVERY Bowl game for the last 30+ years. Always above .500, by how much varies. But I will isolate the strong plays with a better than 60% history and let you decide. Be careful who you follow, hard-work, experience and expertise should be what you are looking for!

Now onto Northern Ill, it’s the 200 Club offense of N. Illinois vs. the Defensive Dandy as underdog. Bowling Green enters at 9-3 SU, 8-4 ATS with losses to Indiana, Miss St., and rival Toledo. The offense percolates behind QB Johnson and RB Green. It is the defense that allows 14 PPG that is the trademark of this team. But, these Falcons do not possess a lot of big game experience. Certainly not the kind possessed by perennial champion N. Illinois. In fact, this is the 4th consecutive Championship Game for QB Lynch, the best offensive player in the MAC. The balanced-explosive offense is enhanced by RB Stingily and WR Lewis. The Huskies have won 25 consecutive conference games and are on runs of 35-16 ATS, including 25-9 ATS in league play. Let’s back the experience of the perennial champion, the best player on the field in Lynch, with the added motivation of a return to a BCS game.
