Leaning UM -3 Purdue puts up points against inferior opponents and UM is better than the team that got A-- whooped by Alabama

I love it when people say such simple things like "Michigan wins easily"

That's when I know the other side is gold.

Purdue is a large play. Only reason Michigan is favored is by name only. Purdue might be the best team in the Big 10 this year they have a much better d than Mich and they can move the ball on anyone.

Michigans two losses come from ALABAMA and Notre dame. Two very respectable teams this year. Who has Purdue played other then the loss against notre dame as well. If purdue is able to shut down denard then purdue wins. but i dont think that will happen. should also be a high scoring game as well.  going with michigan.

purdue best team in big 10....crazy talk.  I cant believe michigan is only -3   Mich heavy   Purdue has played scrub teams besides ND and romped em up. I think ppl sleep on michigan cuz of their losses and their stumble with Air Force even tho my theory is triple option teams make up for what they lack in skill. Mich -3 and ML

I couldn't agree with InVegas more!  He is right...people say michigan is a "lock"...or "michigan easily"...that only makes my purdue lean stronger.  I live in vegas as well...and if you've been around long enough...you love to hear talk like this.  The public loves betting road favorites.  Now that i think about it, a couple of weeks ago i heard the niners were a lock against the vikes and the saints were a lock against the chiefs....not only did those teams not cover, they didnt even win!!!  I'd love for this forum to have threads AFTER the games are over as well as before.  I'd love to hear the excuses some of the users make.  It's free comedy!!!  Taking purdue +3.5 in my contest.  GL everyone.

Agreed. How many easy money games actually come into fruition?  Vegas is not stupid. They set the line to make you feel good about picking a road favorite. How much more comfortable are you taking a home dog?  Obviously not as much. That is why the wise guys usually come out on top. With that said because I "like" Michigan, I am gonna outsmart Vegas and taking the Boilers!

Don't assume what you can't.  I wouldn't have said it if I didn't believe it was going to happen.
