Fithian Fab Five: Braxton Beats Blue

By: Dennis Fithian

Picking Michigan and Michigan State: 8-13

Michigan +4 @ Ohio State: If Wolverines had played better verses the option this year I'd be tempted to pick the upset. Braxton Miller is the difference.

Prediction: Ohio State 30 Michigan 20


Michigan State -8 @ Minnesota: Picking Spartans this year with or without a betting line has been painful.

Prediction: Michigan State 20 Minnesota 10



College football best bests: 17-7

LSU -12 @ Arkansas: Hogs are a complete mess. I'd be tempted to take the Tigers even if they were three or four touchdown favorites.

Prediction: LSU 38 Arkansas 13


Other Best Bets:

Georgia Tech +13 @ Georgia

Oklahoma State +7 @ Oklahoma

Stanford -2 @ UCLA

USC +7 vs. Notre Dame

Florida +7 @ Florida State



Detroit Lions season predictions: 6-4

Detroit +3.5 vs. Houston: Lions can hang with Texans just like they did with the Packers on Sunday.

Painful as it will be, I'll take the Lions with the points, but the visitors will win.

Prediction: Houston 34 Detroit 31


Pro best bets season: 17-17

Denver -11.5 vs. Kansas City: Chiefs took their one shot on MNF. Now, they'll be a good bet to lose all their games verses the number from here on out.

Prediction: Denver 28 KC 10


Tampa Bay +1 vs. Atlanta: Falcons injuries and turnover problems are a concern.

Prediction: Tampa Bay 23 Atlanta 20


Seattle -3 @ Miami: Lots of money moving on the Seahawks since early in the week.

Prediction: Seattle 20 Miami 16


Two other best bets:

Arizona -2 vs. St Louis


New York -2.5 vs. Green Bay
