Vegas releases opening spreads for Rivalry Week B1G matchups
We have reached the final week of the college football season!
It is hard to believe, but teams are now gearing up for season finales and Rivalry Week throughout the country. Though every team is not engaged in a rivalry, most teams will square off with bragging rights on the line.
Most notably, Ohio State and Michigan will square off in The Game in Ann Arbor. Unfortunately, this year’s version will not decide the B1G East with the Buckeyes clinching a trip to Indianapolis over the weekend. However, the Wolverines would love to spoil an undefeated season for Ohio State.
In the West division, Wisconsin and Minnesota will square off for Paul Bunyan’s Axe in a game that is extremely meaningful. The winner will clinch the B1G West and face Ohio State in Indianapolis. The Gophers are still alive for the Playoff with just one loss, but the Badgers are currently out of the race with two losses. Still, a B1G Championship and Rose Bowl would still be a successful season for Wisconsin.
Heading into a week of preparation, here are the opening spreads for every B1G game this week, courtesy of Vegas Insider:
- Iowa (-3.5) vs Nebraska
- Ohio State (-10) vs Michigan
- Wisconsin (-3.5) vs Minnesota
- Penn State (-41) vs Rutgers
- Indiana (-5) vs Purdue
- Illinois (-8.5) vs Northwestern
- Michigan State (-18) vs Maryland
