1. Penn State at Purdue (+3.5). Purdue comes off two tough losses. However this team is pretty fundamentally strong and it should be focused today.  The line for the game has slowly been coming down in favor of Purdue. Penn State still has many issues on both sides of the ball.  Ohio State took advantage of many of their weaknesses and Purdue could do the same. It remains tough to win on the road in the Big Ten. Purdue wins outright. Play on Purdue 2 units.   1. Kansas at Baylor (-17).  Kansas comes off a very emotional loss to Texas. They were leading with just seconds to play and Texas pulled out the dramatic comeback. If my memory serves me right Kansas has not won a conference game in quite a a while. Tough spot for Kansas now having to play on the road. Baylor has not played as well as of late but they clearly are the better team here. Baylor will pose many offensive problems for the Kansas defense. Baylor needs to take advantage early and the game could be over by halftime. Play on Baylor for 2 units. Arizona at UCLA (-3). If you have been reading my write ups this year you probably could have expected me to play UCLA today. Arizona played the game of their lives last week and you can bet they were celebrating that big win all week. Overall I think this game should be pretty evenly matched. However this is purely a spot play against Arizona. Additionally  UCLA is playing great football right now and will be very aggressive in their game plan. Play on UCLA for 1 unit. New Mexico vs. UNLV (-3.5). I know that these two teams are probably two of the worst teams in division one football. However UNLV is making some pretty good strides and they actually are playing their best football despite several losses. I believe I bet this same game last year and took advantage of a small line just like we have here. UNLV has a pretty long way to go to be considered a good football team, but the oddsmakers are very familiar with this team and they rarely make them a  so that says something right there. Play on UNLV for 1 unit. Illinois vs Ohio State (-27.5). The best team in the big 10 verse the worst team in the big 10, enough said. Play on Ohio State for 1 unit. Just missing the cut: Pittsburgh (+17) vs ND. Syracuse +5 vs Cincinnati Washington State (+11) vs Utah.
