Will the Big Ten East Division be decided when the Buckeyes host the Spartans? Join us for free NCAA football picks on Saturday’s early schedule.

NCAAF Season Record: 32-36-4 (-5.00)

After concentrating our early Saturday drinking within a single conference the past few weeks, we’re spreading it around this time with our first stop in Columbus, where Ohio State hosts the Michigan State Spartans in a game that should determine who meets Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game. Despite of being ranked one slot ahead of the Buckeyes in the latest CFP poll, the No. 12 Spartans are huge 17½-point underdogs at Bookmaker, where the total is 53.

Michigan State arrives off a huge upset of Penn State last week in East Lansing, the 27-24 final skipping past the total for the third time in the Spartans’ last four games. The interior of their defensive line is banged up with starting tackle Mike Panasiuk and backup Gerald Owens both questionable. Ohio State was embarrassed at Iowa, 55-24, possibly in part due to the Buckeyes being hungover from their exciting win over Penn State the previous week.

Ohio State has doubled up on Sparty over the years, 30-15, but the series is a level 3-3 the past six meetings. The last three in Columbus failed to reach the totals, but there’s more value in taking the points than playing the total.


Oklahoma State Seeks 6th Straight Over Iowa State

While the biggest game in the Big 12 this week takes place in Norman where Oklahoma hosts TCU, there’s still a lot of traffic behind the conference co-leaders. Two of the squads still hoping to find their way into the league title tilt are the No. 15 Oklahoma State Cowboys and No. 21 Iowa State Cyclones, who collide in Ames for a noon (ET) boot that is a regional telecast on ABC/ESPN2. The Cowboys are 6-7 point favorites with 61-61½ for the total.

Oklahoma State fell at home to the Sooners a week ago in a 62-52 shootout, the contest featuring 52 points in the second quarter alone with OU shredding the Cowboys’ pass defense for nearly 600 yards. Iowa State, meanwhile, fell behind early on the road at West Virginia and couldn’t pull off a big enough second half in a 20-16 loss. All-America wide receiver James Washington (ankle) is questionable for Oklahoma State, the Cowboys attempting to win their 6th straight in the series. The last two in Ames have been ‘over’ winners, but I’m going ‘under’ this time.

Georgia Tech In Near Must-Win Vs. Virginia Tech

About 20 minutes after those two games get underway, the No. 17 Virginia Tech Hokies and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets kick things off in Atlanta. The visiting Hokies are giving up a field goal on the NCAA football odds with 50 for the scoreboard target.

Both sides are coming off losses, Virginia Tech falling 28-10 at Miami as a small ‘dog, while Georgia Tech was upset on the road at Virginia, 40-36. It was the first time this year the Yellow Jackets failed to cover, and Paul Johnson’s troops need to win at least two of their three final games to become bowl eligible. Considering No. 1 Georgia comes to Atlanta at the tail end of the slate, that puts a lot of pressure on Georgia Tech in this one. Underdogs have returned their backers to the pay window 10 of the last 11 meetings, but while I’ll be pulling for the Ramblin’ Wreck, my money and my free college football pick is on the ‘under.’
